The Taster Magazine Weekly Update: Food Festivals This Weekend
Hello! It’s time to round off National Picnic Week: we have two excellent Picnic Cookbooks, each worth £18.99, to give away in our new readers’ survey. Have a go cos you never know.
In the meantime, in London, there’s only one place to go — the giant Taste of London festival, continuing today and all weekend in Regents Park.
If you’re in Northern Ireland, rush to the Titanic exhibition today and try the special two-hour tasting tour (there won’t be another chance to do this until August); alternatively, Enniskillen offers the Festival Lough Erne.
Scotland has two festivals in Edinburgh this weekend: the continuing Royal Highland Show (on today and all weekend) and the Cake Festival (Sunday only) featuring a giant map of Edinburgh made of cake.
In Wales from today, the Lion Inn in Trellech, Monmouthshire, offers music, beer and camping all weekend.
In England Bournemouth F&D Fest kicks off today. It’s the final weekend of the Asparagus Festival in the Vale of Evesham, and festivals are on all weekend in Ellesmere, Harrogate, Evershot (Sunday only) and Droitwich; plus what sounds like an amazing Scandinavian Midsummer Feast in East Harptree, Somerset
NB Remember Father’s Day on Sunday. Hope there’s something in there for you; have a good one!
