We want to encourage children to love and enjoy food and eating. All exhibitors (obv not the gin ones etc!) love to see children at their stalls and most encourage tasting samples. We also have several demos where children are involved and with an emphasis on cheaper produce, this should appeal to older children off to University.

Old Hall Gardens has developed into a great family space with activities, performances and some great hands on sessions and talks on every aspect of food, for all ages as well as the chance to taste things they might not ordinarily.

2017 welcomed face painting (kindly run by Fun Foundations Nursery), the History Chefs, craft tent, Simon Sparkles plus lots of hot food and yummy treats for everyone!
