Rockingham Castle to host its first ever food and drink festival
Rockingham Castle will host its first ever food and drink fair on Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14.
Come rain or shine, this event promises to be a fantastic family day out in a castle that was built on the instructions of William the Conqueror and has been continuously occupied for nearly 1,000 years.
Confirmed exhibitors include: Phipps Albion Bar, Neneview Dairy, Hamm Tun Fine Foods, The Little Smokehouse, Nature’s Fayre, Rutland Fudge, Vicky’s Kitchen, Stonyfield Wine, Brockleby’s Pies, Rutland Gourmet, Meah’s Curry Sauces and Farmer Lou, and Fotheringhay Gin.
Rockingham Castle owner, James Sanders Watson said: “We are very excited to be running our first ever food and drink fair, and because most of our exhibitors will be inside the castle, visitors do not need to worry if the sun isn’t shining. Our pre-bookable tickets are discounted too which makes it a perfect opportunity for people to treat their taste buds while enjoying our historic home and stunning grounds and gardens at the same time.”
This event will run from 11am to 4pm on both days. Pre-booked tickets cost £4 for adults or £5 on the gate (standard castle entry is usually £12). Children under 16 years will be admitted free (usually £7.50).
