The words Polesden Lacey and food are ones that make me want to drop everything and head over there sharpish, especially when they’re put together to form the words Polesden Lacey Food Festival. Fortunately this isn’t happening for a couple of weeks, so you too can join in. We love it there – there’s so many things to do.
Here’s the press release –
Treat your taste-buds and stimulate your senses at the first Polesden Lacey Food Festival ! From Friday 4 – Sunday 6 October, the National Trust property will provide a glorious backdrop for local suppliers including Chalk Hill Bakery, Hogs Back Brewery and High Weald Dairy. Come along from 10am to sample delicious Caribbean chutneys, homemade brownies, fine wines and lots more. Entry to the event will be free.
Experts will also be on-hand to offer cookery demonstrations, including special hands-on children’s sessions, beer and wine tastings. Plus, for only £10 per adult (£5 per child) Wild Food UK will take intrepid foragers on a walk around the Polesden Lacey grounds to see what wild delicacies they can find.
