Farm Feast at Claremont Farm

farm feast

Farm Feast 2015 is a celebration of good, locally sourced food and drink with homegrown music and live entertainment.

Held in the idyllic rolling fields of Claremont Farm, Andrew Pimbley and his team created the festival, the re-branded, re-imagined Wirral Food & Drink Festival. Now in its second year, it expands on the festival’s traditional elements celebrating local producers and showcasing chef demonstrations while adding music entertainment, and family fun.

It takes place on 13th & 14th June 2015.

For foodies, families or simply those looking for a great day out, Farm Feast is a favourite of the North West’s culinary calendar.

Take a stroll in the cobbled courtyard while browsing the rows of local producers, take a peek at some mouthwatering demonstrations or kick back with a pint of ale and listen to some quality music. From cupcake decorating to natural fire building, the kids won’t be bored either in our Little Feasters zone with activities from camp fire building and bush craft skills to cooking and interactive storytelling.

The London International Wine Fair 2015

44935_London-Wine-FairThe London International Wine Fair 2015 opens today and runs until the 20th May.

Event Hire is the official supplier to the show, providing a staggering 50,000 ISO Tasting Glasses to the show.

The focus of the Fair is very much on discovery: new wines and spirits, new producers, emerging countries and regions, new vintage releases, seminars, debates and masterclasses make LIWF the perfect trade event.

Some 700 exhibitors take part in the Wine Fair. From many of the world’s leading brand owners, to individual producers collectively displaying over 10,000 wines from every corner of the world. Largely split into country pavilions and import agencies, there’s much to explore.

From 2015, the London Wine Fair will introduce an annual celebration of two grape varieties – one well-known and widely planted, the other less so; one red and one white. Launching the initiative with Syrah and Grüner Veltliner, the Fair will act as a platform providing tailored content to celebrate each variety.

The recent rise of craft beer’s popularity has been remarkable in the UK, with many retailers and restaurateurs reporting double digit growth from the category. Brewhouse presents 40 of the UK’s finest craft brewers in a dedicated area, with accompanying speakers, debate and presentations in our beer theatre ‘The Hopsack.’

New to the Fair for 2015, Wines Unearthed is an area dedicated to wine producers looking for UK representation. Participating wineries have no UK importer and should be export ready. Around 50 producers are expected to take part.

IN THE BALLROOM
The Rite of Spring depicts an ancient ritual in which a pagan tribe gathers to welcome the Earth’s annual regeneration and propitiate the gods by selecting a sacrificial virgin, who then ritually dances herself to death.

As the sun rises over the primeval landscape TROYLUS SEARLL will waken the world from its wintry slumber with a selection of his Wiccan waltzes and pagan Polkas.

The gods are appeased and you may now surrender your body and soul to the dirty bouncy beats of DJ MIGUEL DARE with his house, r’n’b and hip pop tunes (though dancing yourself to death may be in breach of their health and safety certificate).
