Feast festival at Waddesdon 2017
Enjoy a taste of history over this two-day festival celebrating food, drink and entertainment, all inspired by Baron Ferdinand’s annual garden parties. 17 & 18 June 2017, 10am-5pm.
Feast will see the North Front transformed with elaborately decorated tables for visitors to take a seat at and enjoy a picnic or sample some of the delicious food on offer from one of the handpicked artisan food and wine stalls. There will be a range of extraordinary performances, as well as activities for all the family.
Waddesdon Manor is synonymous with entertaining, having been built for Baron Ferdinand’s infamous ‘Saturday to Monday parties’. Celebrating not only culinary delights, but also the magnificent setting of Waddesdon, roam the grounds and walk through the Manor as if a guest of Ferdinand’s.
Have fun and learn an easy and great way of building interesting metaphors at one of these free drop-in sessions with Indigo Williams. Come along as an individual or a family. On Saturday only, 10am-5pm and in association with the Betjeman Poetry Prize.
