One of our favourite venues; we’ll be on Bridge Street again this year. Let’s hope we don’t have the snow that closed the market on Sunday in 2017, although it was quite beautiful. Why not make a weekend of it and catch some culture at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
We’ll be wearing top hats and bustles; why not get into the spirit yourselves and dress up in Victorian style, sample the hot chestnuts, mulled cider, have a go on the Victorian Carousel, and generally make yourself high on Christmas Spirit. Find us on the High Street, near the cathedral.
This event is like a holiday for me; relaxed hours, and a beautiful setting in the grounds of Stonor Park, where you can visit the house and gardens, as well as spending a small fortune at the hand made fair, before drowning your buyer's regret with a pint of Farty Pants.
This is our local show and one of the few shows we've attended for ten years in a row. Why not make a day of it, have a pint of Gnat's Pee, go and watch the shire horses, pop into Osmaston for a pint at The Shoulder of Mutton, then drop doen into Ashbourne for another one at the Smith's Tavern.
It's a country fair, but in the town; there's bound to be a bull, there always is one in Hereford, and there's a stunt display, harness riding through fire, clay pigeon shooting, someone falling out the sky.......last year there were camels, and if you're really lucky there might be an ice cream van and a bouncy castle.
Now your onions are thriving, you've got all your brassicas planted, and the hanging baskets are bursting with colour, why not take a day off from all that gardening and visit us at the Loseley Park Garden Show; relax and enjoy a pint of Snoring Pig paler ale, before taking home a mixed selection of a dozen bottles.
If you've never been to Sheffield, you should make the trip; it's surprisingly beautiful around the Peace Gardens, where this food festival has become one of our regular Springtime jaunts. If you make a weekend of it, you're a stone's throw from the Peak District, and Julius Caesar is on at The Crucible Theatre.
