Our Festival Champion this year is Bruce Young of Shakenoak Mustard fame. Bruce creates these wonderful condiments only 2 miles from the centre of Witney at Shaken Oak Farm, and is the winner of a host of Great Taste awards. We are delighted that Bruce will be opening the festival at 10am.
Bruce only uses the finest ingredients in his award winning mustards and associated products. A loyal and enthusiastic Festival supporter, Bruce is excited at the prospect of being more involved in this year’s event….’buying locally produced food and drink is a growing trend in the UK and this festival offers an excellent opportunity to showcase the many innovative producers in the area.
As well as all the wonderful stalls, we have plenty of entertainment throughout the day to keep you amused. We will have some tractors on display, an amusing Clerical Culinary Cookery Class, live music, dancing, several local businesses and charities in our Local Focus Area for you to talk to, such as:
Cogges Manor Farm
National Childbirth Trust
Orders of St. John Care Trust
Witney and Abingdon College
Bampton Garden Plants
Royal Air Force Air Cadets (Witney Squadron)
We look forward to welcoming you to this family friendly, community event.
Rooms in Witney if you need somewhere to stay.
