As 2021 draws to a close we wanted to take this opportunity to round-up some of our highlights from this year's wonderful events. From our Artisan Festival to our summer Food Festival and winter Festive Fayre we enjoyed 100's of artisan producers who brought their wonderful food, drinks and amazing gifts and joined us at the stunning Hampton Court Palace!
We had some truly wonderful exhibitors join us at this year’s events. These included delicious food vendors from The Little Pasta Company to Cluck and Freda’s Peanut Butter to pop-up bard Coupette and The Little Orange Van. Check out some of their highlights below. We are delighted to have so many of these wonderful exhibitors back with us for 2022 Shows. First up is our Artisan Festival in May 2022, keep your eyes peeled on our exhibitors and producers page here for the latest announcements of who will be joining us!
From amazing arts and crafts at our Artisan Festival including needlework, candle making and mastering the art of Japanese flower arrangement to face painting and Shire horse rides at our Food Festival we had entertainment for all the family this year! Plus, Adam Rhys and the Polka Dot Trio joined us at our live bandstand in our East Front Gardens to make sure that all our events were filled with toe-tapping tunes from festive favourites to feel good classics!
Delicious Food and Drink
All three of our festivals this year were filled with truly delicious food. Visitors could graze their way through the day on some fantastic street food, including Cajun soul food, churros, succulent fried chicken, award winning coffee and wood fired pizza plus so much more! We also had some fantastic pop-up bars including Bubble Bros serving prosecco and The Little Orange Van serving Aeporal at our Artisan and Food Festival and deliciously warming mulled wine at our Festive Fayre!
As much as we love wonderful food and drink, we cannot forget about the amazing artisan producers who joined us with their incredible ranges of exquisite hand-crafted gifts including homewares, fashion, beauty products and more! From beautifully scented candles from Littlemore Candle Company or Home County Candle Co to wonderful vintage homeware designs from Artcuts or Simply Vintage Decisions the choices were endless! We can’t wait to welcome back many of these amazing exhibitors to our 2022 events, keep your eyes peeled for more announcements!
