"Four cooking workshops"

Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June 2015, 10am-5pm. A weekend not to be missed!


The avenue in front of Waddesdon Manor will be transformed with elaborately decorated tables, where visitors can take a seat and enjoy a picnic or sample some of the food on offer from one of our 50 handpicked artisan food and wine stalls. Meanwhile, a range of captivating performances to delight and surprise young and old alike will take place throughout the day.

Admission during the Feast Weekend includes entry to the gardens, wine cellars, all entertainment and an opportunity to step into the Manor's Red Drawing Room, opened up to show it as the Baron's guests would have seen it. There will also be a free, specially devised trail to help families find out more about Waddesdon, the family who created it and the guests they entertained, and a free exhibition of new work inspired by Waddesdon created by ceramic artist Kate Malone (from BBC television's Great Pottery Throw Down).

Root Camp is a wonderful initiative that teaches young people how to cook from field to table. A dynamic young enterprise, it connects the experience of cooking seasonal ingredients with their provenance by spending half the time in the kitchen and the other half working on the land, fishing, foraging, farming and more.
