Last chance to see...

LitFest has started! What a brilliant night we had at the opening party last night! It was so great to see so many there - a fine mix of locals and people who have travelled from far and wide, all drawn by their passion for food, wine and words. But it's not too late to join us, there are still a few tickets available (at the time of writing!!) to some of the events on Sunday and Monday - it'd be so great to see you there!

From aromatic Thai delicacies with celebrated chef David Thompson, to Madhur Jaffrey talking curry. From the Grassroots of the Edible Food Revolution to the guru of  fermentation Sandor Katz. There is so much not to be missed.

We have the Evolution of Food Writing with John McKenna and Matthew Fort and a treat of Irish fictional culinary heritage from Maria Edgeworth's books.

If you work in hospitality or are thinking of running a restaurant then you won't want to miss Nick Lander, Tom Doorley, Hazel Allen and John McKenna talking straight about the restaurant business.

Come for a walk on the wild side with celebrated gardener Alys Fowler and David Tanis will guide you round our glasshouses.

If you're into wine you simply must come to Jancis Robinson's literary conversation and wine tasting on her master work: Wine Grapes. 

Our action-packed long weekend finishes with Fusing Culinary Cultures, as some of the biggest names in world food, including David Thompson, Madhur Jaffrey and Claudia Roden are joined by specialists from Scandinavia, UK and Australia to discuss the modern phenomenon of fusion food and global eating.

Don't miss this opportunity to feast your mind... and body with all these delights! The sun is shining again - may it shine on us all weekend!
