Spring Delights At Trereife House Easter Fair
Trereife House is looking forward to hosting its 5th Easter Bank Holiday Food and Craft Fair from Friday 3rd to Monday 6th April 2015.
The weekend kicks off at this historic Queen Anne manor house and its spectacular grounds with a series of cookery demonstrations, craft demonstrations and a programme of entertainment.
Over the past years Trereife has developed a reputation for attracting some of the finest local food producers which is set to continue this Easter with larger marquees to house a wide range of producers from Worthy Farm Cheeses and Fish sales from ‘Cadgwith Smokies’, to locally produced beer, cider and wine, as well as this there will be a selection of high quality art and craft from Cornish designer-makers such as Familly Silver jewellery and contemporary screenprint design by Esther Connon .
One of the main attractions of the weekend is set be the highly entertaining food demonstrations by well known local chefs and local food industry producers. The ingredients used will all be locally sourced and will also be on sale at the event.
“The aim of these demonstrations”, says event coordinator, Rob Lewis, “is to promote locally sourced and sustainably produced ingredients, showing that Cornish is best.”
Away from the food demonstrations and at the top of every younger visitor’s list of things to do has to be the taking part in Trereife’s Grand Easter Egg Hunt. Set within the woods and around the walled garden, the Egg Hunt has becomeverypopular with hundreds of happy children expected to be eagerly following the clues this year.
As well as the egg hunt, youngsters can have a go in the Funky Food Workshop orbe totally amazed by story tellers and Trereife’s popular craft workshops.
On top of this there will be a programme of live music and a series of craft demonstrations.
You will discover this enticing range of local treasures hidden amongst the woodland, just off the A30 to Lands End, 1mile west of Penzance. The event will be open from 10am-5pm. Admission for adults is £3.50, children £2 and under 5s free of charge. Family tickets are £11 (two adults and three children).
