Project Name: Withernsea 2013 Shellfish Festival

Organisation: Withernsea Town Council

Part of a linked FLAG project in 2012 to pioneer the development of an integrated festival programme along the East Yorkshire coastline to promote the Holderness Coast fishery to local residents and visitors, continues to grow at the local level. The project will continue to increase the visibility of local seafood and the local fishery through increasing the promotion of local seafood within existing summer events run at community level. The project will be delivered with the support of the EYLFN via an integrated seafood promotional and media programme along with provision of a mobile kitchen and Chef for the purpose of delivering food demonstration activities. In addition, the festival will be supported via a further two FLAG Projects ‘Wingham’s Fresh Fish’ who will be in attendance with their newly purchased Chiller Unit, promoting and selling locally caught shell and white fish and ‘Voices of the Sea’, the Withernsea Ladies Musical Society will be in attendance singing sea and sea shanty songs.
