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.
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.
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.
This is a lovely one; our annual Spring visit to the town of Alcester where the High Street is filled with food and drink stalls from around the country; why not make a day of it and come for breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, and an early dinner, all washed down with a pint or two of Farty Pants
We're returning to the stunning setting of Wentworth Woodhouse, which was built from the fortune made out of coal; black gold; and this time we're leaving the ballroom to set up on the lawn in front of the house where we should be serving pints of Knobhead.
This will be a fantastic weekend, and it's not just for gardeners; you can throw a pot, have a go at archery.........have a pint! And look out for Jazz Magic, playing music from the Prohibition Era....you'll appreciate the irony when you see how many pints they down between sets!
This should be an interesting one; we'll be taking our place amongst the handbags, frocks, and cosmetics at the Northamptonshire County Cricket Ground for a VIP Ladies Day Out Pamper Me Fair. There's nothing a lady likes more than a nice Big Cock, which is a very refreshing, golden pale ale.
