British Food Fortnight runs until 3rd October

We are currently in the middle of British Food Fortnight, which goes on until 3rd October.  The idea of the festival is to celebrate eating local, seasonal food, whilst encouraging shops and restaurants to think about where they produce comes from.  There are going to be special events at Harrods, John Lewis, St Pancras train station and St Paul’s Cathedral.

The National Trust is joining in the extravaganza, with events all over the country.  There’s a Food and Craft Festival in Beningbrough Hall, N. Yorkshire (25-26th September), a Peppers Day in Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire (25th Sept) and an Apple Festival in Erddig, Wrexham (2-3rd Oct), among others.
