After the overwhelming popularity and success of our previous Craft Fairs, Langlands are excited to announce that we will be holding our very first Food & Garden Festival in the indoor event area at our Shiptonthorpe Garden Centre.

On Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of October 2016, renowned Yorkshire Chefs and Cooks will be demonstrating many innovative and stimulating dishes inspired by all the great ingredients that can be grown in your very own garden!

We expect over 70 producer stalls to join us for the weekend, with plenty of local Yorkshire produce to try and buy.

The Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School will be in attendance with their mobile cookery school, in which they will be hosting some brilliant hands-on demonstrations where you can get to have a go at a wide range of cooking activities to broaden you culinary horizons, with particular emphasis on inviting children to participate and learn a little bit about all the exciting things that they can accomplish in the kitchen. Perhaps your girls and boys could be the next Jamie, Nigella or Ainsley!

In addition, the Langlands Potting Shed will be attended by our plant experts to offer you advice and guidance on the many plants used in the demonstrations, all of which be available to purchase, take home and experiment with!

And, as an extra treat, we will be joined by the talented and vivacious Christa Ackroyd, known for her wonderful work for BBC Look North: Yorkshire and North Midlands. She will be our MC and roving reporter in the Food Theatre over the entire weekend.
