A delightfully fishy business: MDL announces first Hythe Seafood Festival

Posted: 18th April 2019

An inaugural Seafood Festival is being held at Hythe Marina Village on 8th June 2019. With a wide range of local produce and live music the event is certain to become a firm favourite in the local calendar.
“We have a really wide range of stall holders,” says Phil Bridges, event organiser for MDL. “There will be fresh fish sourced from local waters and further afield, and cookery demonstrations with lots of top tips for both amateurs and professionals. It’s about time we celebrated our wonderful larder in the sea. Plus, there’ll be fun for all the family with face painters and live music.”
As well as fishy favourites like fish and chips and seafood pizza, visitors will enjoy the delights of companies selling local produce such as fudge, ice cream, cakes, gin and wine. In addition to all these tasty morsels will be Classics on the Quay, a collection of over 100 amazing classic and supercars. A Griffon Hovercraft will also be landing in Hythe on the day.
MDL prides itself on its marinas’ interactions with local communities.
“We really do enjoy these types of events,” says Kerry Marriott, Head of Operations. “Many of our marinas hold exciting days for members and the community. We’re particularly excited about the Seafood Festival and can’t wait to taste all the stunning goodies on offer.”
The Seafood Festival runs from 9am-5pm, on 8 June 2019. More information is available from https://www.lovehytheandwaterside.co.uk, https://www.facebook.com/hythemarinavillage and https://twitter.com/MDLHytheMarina.
There will be limited onsite parking with additional parking available nearby in Hythe Village. Alternatively, visitors could use the Hythe Ferry from Town Quay, Southampton, which will be offering FREE travel for kids on the day for the event.
