For many the Netflix documentary Seaspiracy was as shocking as Blue Planet was on plastic pollution. Was it overdone? Can our seas recover from over fishing and will post Brexit Britain be able to manage fish stocks better in the future?


Shane Holland in conversation with Jim Portus, Mark Lobb and Lucas Daglish.

in the FOOD MATTERS TENT in Royal Ave Gardens near the Visitor  Centre.

A series of conversations between experts from across the spectrum of food production, preparation and promotion. Sustainability will be our central theme but we will also explore survival and innovation during the Covid lockdown, its possible long term effects on the food industry and shine light on the science of human nutrition. With audience participation very much encouraged we aim to provide an entertaining and friendly exchange of ideas and discussion because, well, Food Matters!

The format is primarily a conversation between a host and 2-3 experts for 20 mins followed by an opportunity for the audience to get involved. Food Matters is a unique part of our Food Festival. In a spirit of sharing knowledge and public debate we make no charge for entry but need to ask for donations to cover our costs. Please give generously.

Seats cannot be booked so come early to secure a place. Entry will be allowed from 10 mins before the start of a new session. There will be around 20 standing places.
