Food, art, music and more at Sandringham Food, Craft & Wood Festival

Living Heritage Events are back at Sandringham with a programme of exciting events to delight all ages.

There’s a great show line-up for the company’s first event in August, catching up on lost time by combining the Food & Drink Festival with the company’s Easter Craft & Wood Fair.

The 2021 line up of chefs demonstrating at the festival is impressive, with local chef Galton Blakiston, Jen Christophe Novelli, Jo Pratt, Lawrence Henry, Ben Bartlett & the Crabstock Boys all making guest appearances over the three days.

Into the Food Halls and you will find a large array of food and drink for your appreciation, from both local and regional and national producers.

The main food court, The Piazza, is home to some great street food & drink. You can choose from a wide range of food varying from traditional hog roast to Caribbean, Greek & falafels. Take time out to eat, drink and be merry whilst relaxing to the background music of live jazz and folk.

Moving around the show, you’ll come to the craft and wood exhibitors, demonstrators and competitions. Here there’s nationally selected artists, designers and craftsmen exhibiting and  demonstrating and selling their crafts and skills in the main craft pavilions.

Scattered around them are lots of rural skills and demonstrations, coppice crafts, corn dollies, besom brooms and vintage wood working machinery including steam racksaw planking demonstration.

There will again be The Sandringham Cup, a large chainsaw competition with some of the UKs top carvers competing. At the end of the competition these exquisite sculptures are sold by auction.

New this year is the Lumberjack Sports Competition organised by the BLSA, with an exciting mix of tree climbing, speed chopping and sawing, all against the clock.

Sandringham Food, Craft & Wood Festival takes place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th August. Click or tap here to buy tickets or call 01283 820548.
