Working in association with celebrity chef and Chewton Glen alumnus James Martin, the cookery school will be headed-up by Chef Tutor, Steve Bulmer.  James and Steve have formulated a rolling roster of bespoke and stimulating courses and demonstrations that will inspire, inform, educate and most importantly provide a culinary experience that is packed full of fun and enjoyment. Classes will be hosted by Rob and visiting guest and celebrity chefs, including Tom Kerridge, Atul Kochhar, Richard Corrigan, and, of course, James Martin himself.

Lymington Harbour and its strong maritime heritage has been at the heart of the Town and its community for hundreds of years. These days, the harbour is one of the most popular leisure boating destinations in the UK, playing a key part in bringing marine tourism to Lymington as well as providing around 650 moorings for local people.

Visiting yachts have plenty of choice between harbour moorings at the Town Quay near the high street, the Dan Bran Pontoon close to the Royal Lymington and Lymington Town yachts clubs, or the privately owned Berthon and Yacht Haven marinas with their excellent facilities.

The harbour also supports many other marine businesses generating local employment. These include the Wightlink ferry service to the Isle of Wight, dry boat storage, many marine services and boat yards, boat sales, chandleries, river trips, and a small but important fishing fleet that lands its catch at Lymington quay!

You’ll be able to find out more by visiting the Lymington Harbour Commissioners stand at the Seafood Festival.
