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.

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.

2019 will once again welcome face painting (kindly run by Fun Foundations Nursery), opportunities to try weaving and sewing, food demonstrations, cookery classes (kindly run by Arty Cooks), Simon Sparkles plus lots of hot food and delicious treats for everyone!
