Celebrating local food, real ale and gardening, Fork Fest 2011 is a fun filled weekend for all the family. With music, demos, a flower festival, Beer Fest and Real Ale Trail, plenty of food sampling and entertainment for the kids, Fork Fest 2011 is not to be missed.
Enjoy an afternoon of sampling the best ales from the region and listen to music in the Beer Fest tent, which brings together 13 local breweries into one location. Real Ale tickets available at the ticket tent. New for 2011, for those who wish we now have a Pimms and Champagne & Strawberry tent.
