Mullion Cove and Bristol City Council have joined forces again to create a three day family-friendly event at Ashton Court Estate this Jubilee weekend.
After the success of the Christmas food and craft fayre, the Ashton Court Summer Fayre will have a similar format with a wide selection of quality local food and drink producers alongside local artists and crafts people.
This free event will be situated in the stables courtyard and hayloft of the mansion house at Ashton Court Estate. The summer fayre will be the perfect place to relax over the Jubilee weekend where you can shop for unusual gifts from the craft stalls, pick up some traditional English fare from the artisan food stalls and unwind on this 850 acre estate.
Organiser Sophie Bowden said:
“I can’t think of a better place to have a summer food and craft fayre than Ashton Court Estate. Being a true English estate, it lends itself very well to an event of this nature and has the space and beauty to entertain just about everyone. Having it over the Jubilee weekend means that visitors can expect a majestic ambience with croquet on the South lawn, traditional English crafts; and lots of delectable food fit for a queen!”
“We will be actively encouraging visitors to come for the day with their picnic blankets, lawn games and barbeques. And what with the food and drinks stalls bursting with local produce, they can purchase all their picnic goodies when they get here!”
Expect an array of local producers as well as face painting, craft demonstrations, local musicians, Jubilee strawberries and cream, a hog roast and much more.
Local business taking part include Severn Cider, Zara’s Chocolates, Yarty Cordials, Natures Roast coffee, Mullion Cove, Little Ren Art Prints, Dorset Sushi, Edibubble, Fair and Square Chocolate Brownies, Village Green Soaps, Boxbush Farm apple juice, Forest of Avon Wood products, Simon Weaver Cheese, FEYA jewellery and Somerset Soup Company.
The summer food and craft fayre will take place from 10am – 5pm on Sunday 3, Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 June. Free entry.
