Waddesdon Manor’s hugely popular Feast Festival is looming large on the horizon and promises to be a weekend of entertainment and culinary delight.

Inspired by the historical ‘Baron’s Treat’ when Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild would invite local people to enjoy a tea party in the gardens of Waddesdon Manor, Feast invites visitors to see the Manor transformed with elaborately decorated tables, where visitors can take a seat and enjoy a picnic or sample some of the food on offer from one of our 60 handpicked artisan food and wine stalls.

A range of captivating performances will be on show to delight and surprise young and old alike throughout the two-day event on June 17 and 18 (10am-5pm).

Admission during the Feast Festival includes entry to the gardens, wine cellars and all entertainment.

Performances on the day will include:

‘Alice de Rothschild’ will be waiting to greet visitors in the Breakfast room to answer questions and talk about the beautiful gardens at Waddesdon and the famous ‘Miss Alice’s Rules’.

Bees! The Colony! by Artizani
