FEAST and Fiesta is the theme for this spring’s Porthleven Food and Music Festival and preparations are already under- way for the event on April 25.
Hannabeth Johnson, coordinator, said: “The festival is held at a time of year you would not normally associate with celebration so this year we wanted the theme to reflect the event’s carnival atmosphere. 
“Feast and Fiesta will be a celebration of sumptuous food, music, performances and art that will bring the community together in celebration.”
Full event details are yet to be released but already confirmed are Antony Worrall Thompson, festival patron, who will open the event and take part in the annual Ready Steady Cook-style ‘cook off’ with local chef Jude Kereama of Kota.
 Rick and Jack Stein who have recently opened a |restaurant in Porthleven will also be demonstrating dishes from Rick’s new TV series. 
The Masked Ball team are this year running the evening and Sunday live music events and have confirmed Hayseed Dixie to headline on the Friday with Duncan Disorderly and The Lumberjack Cowboy Heartbreak Trucking Company to headline on Saturday night.
During the main festival, Saturday, there will be over 90 food and craft stalls surrounding the harbour, two outdoor music stages with performances from Rosie and The Goldbug and Flats and Sharps, a Family Fiesta and Fairground and a film festival run by Half Cut Cinema.
