What a ripoff!
Tavistock “food and drink festival” is on this weekend. It’s in the Wharf carpark, which is pleasantly-situated between the river, the wharf theatre, swimming pool, and town centre, as well as being the biggest open/flat/hardstanding area in town. They’ve closed the whole area off, including (on-foot) access from the path along the river, which makes the thing seem bloomin’ unfriendly.
This morning I tried going to it, expecting to look around and sample some goodies. Now it becomes clear why everything is blocked off. There’s just one official entrance, and they charge four quid entry! Good grief!
Well, I’m perfectly happy to spend four quid at a stall whose food and/or drink impresses me. In fact I was hoping to find enough to delight me that I’d spend a good deal more than that: indeed, it was in anticipation of this that I didn’t go food shopping on Friday. But a hefty charge just for entrance, ferchrissake? What a bloody ripoff!
Guess it’s longlife food for this evening, then. Might do something interesting with quinoa and fruit&nuts. Or find something in the freezer that’ll go on pasta.
