Once again Plymouth University is celebrating the role of water in the health of the city. Fishing Feast 2016 is organised in partnership with Plymouth City Council and South West Water, whose significant investment plans include an innovative new water treatment works in north Plymouth.
This ancient Fishing Feast ceremony at Burrator Head Weir, believed to be one of the oldest surviving ceremonies in Britain, is by invitation only. Appreciating its important connectivity with Drake’s Place Gardens and Reservoir, guests this year include Friends of Drake’s Place, who volunteer on a regular basis to help maintain this wonderfully restored community space for the city.
The Reservoir Café, overlooking Drake’s Place, holds popular BBQs every Thursday on the colonnade and there are Tudor Games in the gardens every Wednesday. We host many community events in Drake's Place - all welcome so do 'come on in' to join us for food and fun!
