Fringe Festival – Old Hall Gardens!

This year we are delighted to announce that a Fringe Festival is again taking place at Old Hall Gardens!

The Fringe Festival will play host to some amazing charities such as World Wildlife Fund, RSPB and Woodland Trust.

There will be a crafts marquee where local crafters will be demonstrating their skills such as hand sewing, stained glass, willow weaving and how to use driftwood to make amazing items. These demonstrations will be taking place in the craft marquee throughout the day.

The Fringe also has some amazing hot food on offer, from Spanish Food to Science Ice Cream – there will be something for everyones tastes!  With this being a particularly hot spot for families our lovely exhibitors will ensure that children sized portions are available with lots of discounts for anyone wearing a festival wristband!

The Skills Marquee is making a welcome return too!  Here our visitors can learn about skills as diverse as bee keeping, making hedgerow cordials, learning how to make a prehistoric stew (no dinosaurs needed!) and lots of other exciting activities including ‘Make and Take your Tea’ where the much younger festival goers will have a chance to make Pizza and take it home to cook (if they haven’t filled themselves up with the other lovely festival grub!)

Have a look at our website for more information and exact timings as they are confirmed – there is certainly something for everyone!

Festival favourite, Falconry UK return with their birds of prey for photo opportunities, our lovely friends at Fun Foundations Day Nursery will be there for face painting, Riverford will be making veg fun and we will have a pottery wheel for you to try making a pot to take home!

To start our Forgotten Foods theme in preparation for next years festival (oh boy – do we like to plan ahead!) we have the wonderful History Chefs – they will have their own stall AND do a demo each day in the marquee.  We like to keep our friends busy!  They will be doing their demos at 12.30 on both days – if you fancy seeing how to make prehistoric stew and other foods from history make sure you come along!

Live music will be bringing a wonderful Festival vibe to the area so come along and relax in the beautiful surroundings of Old Hall Gardens – there is so much going on!!!
