Medicine Garden hosts second arts and food festival

Elmbridge Guardian: Art and food: Sounds good Art and food: Sounds good

Food and art lovers can enjoy a delicious and inspiring day out for all the family as the Medicine Garden hosts its second arts and food festival within its walled Victorian kitchen garden.

A range of arts and foods will be on offer, and Gary Scott, a sculptor, and Richenda Court, a print maker, will exhibit and sell their work.

Handmade crafts will also be prominent, with jewellery, ceramics, glass and textiles on offer, along with the opportunity to meet the maker.

The Medicine Garden’s onsite weaver and art coordinator, Louise Nason, will host free art workshops, with the opportunity to contribute to an art installation being created at the event.

For the foodies, there will be food stalls in the garden itself and a wide range of tastings provided by the producers to the Larder, the garden’s own farm shop.

From fish finger sandwiches to wine tasting courses, there will be something for every palate.

An outdoor cooking demonstration featuring Gareth Palmer from Vanilla Bean, presenting a foraging menu, and Natalie Heath, a raw lifestyle coach, will also be held.

Baytree Holdings, whose pigs live onsite at the garden, will be introducing their new piglets to visitors and there will be the opportunity to learn more about keeping your own hens.

If the array of food and art was not enough, there will be live music from Harriet Starling and the Good Honeys and the Miscela Quartet, who have both been popular at previous events.

Three-piece band, Badgers… Lots of them, will also be playing in the garden for the first time.

Art and Food Festival; The Medicine Garden, Downside Road, Cobham; May 6, 10am to 5pm; £4 per family on the door; all profits go to the Medicine Garden Foundation
