One for foodies and families alike, this event showcases some of the best food, drink and talent our region has to offer - with a focus on inspiring kids to cook. For the grown-ups, a fantastic line-up of local chefs will provide cooking demonstrations throughout the day, giving you the chance to sample some mouth-watering delights as well as ideas for you to try at home. As the name suggests, this is a family event, so it is not just about improving your own culinary skills but giving the little people in your life a head start in the kitchen. Just head to the KidsZone where Food is Fun will be helping youngsters make their own fish finger bap or mini pizza and side salad for lunch, followed by a fresh fruit salad for dessert. Throughout the day, they will also have the opportunity to take part in a workshop or demonstration run by The Kings School. As well, they can decorate a donkey biscuit for an afternoon treat, get crafty at the colouring-in station and have their face painted. Entry into the KidsZone costs £5 per child and includes all of the above in the entry price. There will of course be an opportunity to treat yourself to some high-quality local artisan produce, before tucking in to delicious eats and refreshments from local street food vendors. And to top it all off, try your luck at winning any number of great prizes up for grabs in the ‘pick a prize’ raffle and don’t forget to enter the complimentary prize draw for the star prize of the day. Admission £2.50 per adult including prize draw entry, under 12s are free. Free parking and dogs are welcome on a lead. All proceeds go directly to the worldwide work of The Donkey Sanctuary.
