Dorset Seafood Festival

School of Fish

If you have booked your Festival tickets and have children coming then you can enrol them in the School of Fish – a FREE children’s cookery workshop.

Weymouth CollegeWe are thrilled to collaborate with Weymouth College to present this feature for children to take part in – perfect for any budding chef! 

Weymouth College is the local further education centre and is the perfect partner to work with our visiting families and help kids create their own delicious seafood dishes at the Festival. As well as being a centre of excellence, the college boasts its very own restaurant that is open to the public throughout the year The Avenue Restaurant - Weymouth College. You’ll be able to try some of their dishes from their seafood stall at the Festival!  

“It is fantastic to spark up the partnerships with the seafood festival again. Weymouth College have in the past enjoyed being part of the festival growing our presence within the local community and we look forward to getting back involved this year. We are proud to be supporting the school of fish cookery workshops allowing the staff and students at the college to inspire the next generation of chefs. The festival does a great job at showcasing the fantastic things you can do with seafood whilst maintaining a strong focus on sustainability for the future of which we are in full support” - Ashley Perry, Catering Skills Lead & Avenue Manager.

They will be provided with an apron, chef’s hat and all the equipment necessary - all you have to do is book a space and turn up!
