Sandringham Food, Craft and Wood Festival will host top chefs
From celebrity chefs to chainsaw carving, there’s something for everyone at the upcoming Sandringham Food, Craft and Wood Festival.
It combines the Summer Food and Drink Festival with the Easter Craft and Wood Festival which both take place at the Sandringham Estate, as the latter was unable to take place earlier this year due to coronavirus restrictions.
The event will run from Friday August 6 to Sunday August 8, with opening hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
Top chefs from across the UK will take part in the festival hosted by Living Heritage Events, including Galton Blackiston, Jean-Christophe Novelli, Jo Pratt, Laurence Henry, Andrea Wallace, Ben Bartlett and The Crabstock Boys.
Mr Bartlett, who will host a barbecue masterclass, said: “I will be doing two demonstrations each day with four fantastic recipes including a barbecue bacon sushi roll and watermelon pizza which is quite unusual but delicious.
“I really missed the food festivals and it will be a great event for the whole family.”
In the food halls, visitors will find a wide range of dishes and drinks from local, regional and national producers.
The Piazza is the main food court, and offerings will include roast pork, Caribbean fare, and falafel, with live jazz and folk music.
The event will also host exhibitors of crafts and wood, with demonstrations and competitions throughout the weekend.
The craft pavilions will host artists, designers and artisans from across the county and scattered around them, rural skills will be on display.
The Sandringham Cup Chainsaw Competition will also take place at the event, with some of the UK’s top sculptors competing.
At the end of the competition, these impressive sculptures are auctioned.
New this year is the lumberjack sporting competition, with an exciting mix of tree climbing, fast cutting and sawing, all against the clock.
Tickets cost £ 11 for adults, £ 10 for over 65s and £ 4 for children (ages 5-15) and dogs are welcome on a leash.
