Record breaking food and drink festival

Attendance record smashed by 3,000

Local producers were part of a record-breaking weekend at this year's Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival.

Around 10,000 people attended the event at the Villa Marina gardens on September 17 and 18.

That's 3,000 more than the previous record.

Food Business Development Manager for the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture is Andrew Lees.

He believes the attendance figures show the Manx people care about where their food comes from.
