Across the weekend of August 24th and 25th, a wide range of produce will be available to enjoy from local suppliers. The beautiful deer park in which we are situated will be transformed by stalls overflowing with local cheeses, meats, artisan breads, and many more exciting flavours and products - to make your mouth water at the thought!
If gin or artisan ales are your tipple, then you will be in the right place as many drink producers are bringing samples for you to taste and savour at home. Champagne, Shandy, locally pressed cider, cocktail competitions, showcases from well known mixologists and gin workshops are some of the sparkling elements planned for this year’s event.
