It’s already beginning to look a lot like Christmas as the South of England Agricultural Society prepares for its annual Festive Food & Drink Fayre – their final event of the year. Taking place on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December, the Fayre boasts local Christmas delights and festive fun to suit everyone, all under one roof with a stunning variety of regional foods, gifts and stocking fillers.
Bringing some warmth to the bleak midwinter, the Fayre offers an escape from the Christmas shopping chaos on the high street but without the ‘buy it and hope’ experience offered by online shopping.
This year’s Fayre is host to exhibits ranging from the Curry Sauce Company's 14 aromatic flavours of curry sauce to gourmet dishes and Farmhouse Direct’s rare breed meats. With a plethora of preserves and pickles, traditional mince pies and farmhouse cheeses, the event caters for the most sumptuous of seasonal spreads across the twelve days of Christmas.
Perennial favourites, Potash Farm, return again to the Fayre with a selection of products based on the humble cobnut. The only farm of its kind in the UK, the company will have unique gifts designed to cook, carry and grow the naturally nutritious nuts. In addition, their tasty treats include delicious Kentish Cobnut Fudge.
Spread across two floors of the recently refurbished Norfolk Pavilion, the Fayre has a interesting array of trade stands as well as ample free parking. From skincare to cookware, the event is bound to remove the Christmas confusion and satisfy even the most unusual shopping requests.
Admission prices to the Festive Food & Drink Fayre are £2.50 for adults and £2.00 for students & senior citizens. Society members and children under 16 years are free. The Fayre is open from 9am to 4pm on both days.
