Our Taste of Autumn Food Festival is back, bigger and better in 2018. This is a perfect opportunity to discover the culinary delights of the season and enjoy the garden in stunning autumn colour.
Indulge in a mouthwatering array of regional produce including artisan cheeses, pies, sausages, locally handcrafted chocolates and craft beers. Our Feast Theatre will host a range of talks and cookery demos throughout the weekend, including our dream team of Head Chef James Curtis and Horticulturist Matthew Oliver with their inspirational 'Field to Fork' demos.
Once you've sampled the local produce, explore our fabulous Global Growth Vegetable Garden (as featured on BBC Gardeners' World), ask the experts your growing questions, and test your taste buds with our chilli tasting session. Our fabulous storyteller will also be here to entertain the kids.
We're a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. We want to enrich everyone's life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
