A new independent festival this weekend concentrating on coffee, tea and chocolate has been organised by North Marston-based coffee company Monkshood.

The show runs from 10am to 4.30pm tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday at Waddesdon Plant Centre, Waddesdon Manor.

The event will bring a taste of some of the finest producers, creators and artisans in their fields, showcasing cutting-edge baristas, tea ceremonies and chocolatier demonstrations.

There will also be workshops, seminars and live music.

Admission to the festival is free. Money raised and donations given over the course of the weekend will benefit Monkshood’s chosen charity, Coffee Kids, which works with coffee-farming families to improve their lives and livelihoods.
