We will be taking the well-travelled LoveTaliesin gazebo to Newstead Abbey for The Great Food and Drink Festival this year. We’ll descend on Lord Byron’s old home, in the company of celebrity chefs Simon Rimmer, Michael Caines and Nancy Birtwhistle who will be showing you their incredible culinary skills.
The event takes place at the back of the abbey on the lawns and also at the front of the abbey as well.
As well as LoveTaliesin, there will be up to 100 other stalls selling fabulous produce as well as the fine array of high quality artisan crafts.
Lots of selection on fine ales and ciders, along with other on-site bars with a wide selection of drinks.
Entertainment runs through out the day everyday with live music from 10am – 4pm
Children’s entertainment is provided by the Bongo Bongo team and the fabulous Punch and Judy will be showing daily over the three days.
Come try your hand at some of the baking and Master Classes that are running each day.
