A feast of food, music, entertainment and fun is promised at the first ever FEAST event to be held in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor over the Father’s Day weekend (10am - 5pm Saturday June 20 and Sunday 21).
The North Front of the manor will be transformed with elaborately decorated tables, where visitors can take a seat and enjoy a picnic brought from home or purchase some of the food on offer from one of the 50 artisan food and wine stalls.
The Young Pilgrims Marching Band will bring rock-induced, brass band madness to the weekend, welcoming visitors on arrival and performing throughout the day.
The Ragroof Players Tea Dance will take place each day, with the audience invited to take part and learn from a dance teacher, or just indulge in a delicious cake and cup of tea whilst watching the Ragroof dancers as they bring a touch of vintage glamour to Waddesdon.
apBlush Rose Hair and Make Up will be offering express vintage hair styling in the period of the Forties and Fifties each day from noon.
A taste of Wimbledon will be presented by Anyone For Tennis, who will bring a pristine court, dead posh umpire and highly strung players to entertain one and all in a one set match.
Root Camp is offering cookery workshops for 14 - 21-year-olds with the help of celebrity chefs Oliver Rowe on Saturday and Valentine Warner on Sunday.
Places are limited on the cookery workshops so advance booking is recommended on 01296 653226.
Other entertainers will include silent movie characters, acrobats and puppets.
Admission to FEAST for a family (two adults and up to three children) £28, adults £11, children £6, NT members and under fives free.
