A feast of food and entertainment in Newtown, September 3 - 4 2016

Festival for foodies right on our doorstep!

Coming up shortly, Newtown Food and Community Festival 2016 promises to be the biggest and best so far! Held in the Town Hall Grounds at Newtown on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September, the event is suitable for adults and children alike, and admission is free.

Newtown Food and Community Festival is a key highlight in the area with a Food Producers Tent, Street Food, Community Lawn (with bar), Children’s Village and Music Lawn. Local and national food producers exhibit and for 2016 there will be an international flavour for the occasion, with a French market provided by Newtown’s twinned town, Les Herbiers. Masterclasses with chefs and sugar crafters will run alongside a junior Ready Steady Cook competition and a Mad Hatters Tea Party.

Away from the food and drink there are a host of other activities: craft stalls, children’s entertainment, organised walks round town, community charity stalls plus a range of live music by local performers and bands – even a string orchestra!

For those planning a trip to Highgate Barn House and Cottages at any time of the year, there’s plenty of local food and drink to sample and then take home, to remind you of a visit to Montgomeryshire. There’s Monty’s Brewery ales, Hilltop Honey, Kerry Vale Vineyard wines, Neuadd Fach Baconry meats, Montgomeryshire Natural Spring Water, Dairy Dreams ice cream and Berriew Cider, to name but a few. And for those wanting to enjoy a meal featuring local produce, there is an abundance of wonderful cafes, bistros, pubs and restaurants all around – many within just 10-15 minutes drive from Highgate. Why not use food as the main focus for a trip to Mid Wales, and then explore the area from the Barn House or Old Stable and Milk Stand Cottages?!
