At the Plymouth Seafood Festival the harbour will come alive with an exciting quayside celebration of the city's fantastic locally caught seafood in the annual Plymouth Seafood Festival.
Seafood, local produce, live family entertainment including music and hands on activity with marine experiments and filleting fish. Jonty Depp (known to some as Captain Jack Sparrow) will also be amongst the crowd with Puppetree Company, who will be doing 30 minute shows at 12pm, 1.30pm and 3.30pm, the Heart FM Angels will also be doing face painting and Flash Jack Shanty Band will be performing! Local fishermen will bring their catch in and tell their stories. The Aquariam will be bringing marine science onto the streets with STEMFest or visit the Fish Market on Sutton Harbour's Heritage Trail.
