A TOWN centre will be awash with the taste and smells of continental Europe as a festival heads to the coast.

The Traditional European Food and Craft Fair will arrive in Eastbourne on Friday August 22 for four days.

Market organiser Olivier Simonin said: “We have new professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more.

“They will be wearing traditional costumes and selling high quality products including Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, delectable cheeses, sausages, tartiflette, charcuterie, and fresh bread.
