Althorp Food & Drink Festival
published date: 18 May 2018
Our outdoor furniture looked fantastic against the warm, honey coloured ironstone of Althorp's stables. Built circa 1732, the substantial building was home to 100 horses and 40 grooms until the start of the 20th century. It was just one of the areas of Althorp's grounds hosting the annual Food & Drink festival, which we were proud to be part of.
The festival took place over two days and included cooking demonstrations, masterclasses and workshops from award-winning chefs. Great British Bake-Off winner Francis Quinn and MasterChef winner Shelina Permalloo made an appearance, and Mich Turner MBE, creator of cakes for The Queen and David Beckham, showcased her creative talents. Guests were able to sample regional produce including chocolate, ciders and prosecco. There were competitions, live music and even a magic show for entertainment - we can't wait until next year's festival...
