The people of Llanelli treated themselves on Saturday 16th October as our Llanelli Food and Drink Festival returned!

Crowds turned out in droves as hot street food vendors and artisan producers lined the streets, and the sun was shining as festival-goers tucked into their treats and were entertained as a lineup of acoustic acts took to the stage in Stepney Square.  

Children and adults alike got stuck into the food-themed crafty fun as the vintage pottery bus Annibendod offered Mad Hatter’s Tea Party pottery, while A Taste of Times Past hosted pickling and pasta-making workshops in St Elli Shopping Centre. 

We can always rely on the people of Llanelli to bring the party!

Chair of Ymlaen Llanelli, Lesley Richards, was thrilled with the event’s success: “The annual food festival is our biggest event, and it was great to see people excited for it to return after a year away. Our work at Ymlaen Llanelli is all about bringing people together in Llanelli town centre, so we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone that came along and made the day what it was. We can always rely on the people of Llanelli to bring the party!” 

Some of our traders will be returning for Llanelli Monthly Food Market on Saturday 20th November, and we'll be back for some festive fun with Llanelli Reindeer Parade on Saturday 4th December.
