“There’s no better way to cheer up the very long, grey month of January than a food fair. And this will be a very tasty affair with lots to chose from – like very special sausages, the perfect tonic of a range of flavoured gins, meat, vegan food, vegetarian options and gluten free, too.

“Whether you have a thing for fudge, bacon baps, tapas, charcuterie or liqueurs, this is the place to be next weekend.”

Garden admission is just £3. The gates open at 10am and close again at 4.30pm (last entry 3.30pm). There’s no additional charge for the Food Fair and there is plenty of free parking for everyone.
