Festive food to tickle tastebuds at Athelhampton House Christmas Fair

FESTIVE flavours will be the order of the day at an event next month.

On Saturday and Sunday, November 25 and 26, Athelhampton House will host the Dorset Food & Drink Christmas Fair.

Organisers say visitors will be dazzled with a showcase of festive offerings, alongside a heart-warming Christmas atmosphere, all wrapped up in a fabulous location with music and tasty seasonal treats to sample and buy.

“With a curated lineup of their members and guest stallholders, selling locally made food, drink, and artisanal gifts – it’s a great way to get to know the people who make, bake, brew, cook, sew, grow, craft, make and create lovely things,” a spokesperson said.

“Whether it’s local cheese, funky craft ales, seasonal treats, interesting liqueurs, a unique piece of jewellery, or perhaps something beautiful or functional made from upcycled items – there are plenty of gift ideas, stocking fillers and hot food & drink to keep you going.

“Plus, it’s a great way to support your local producers and makers.”

Barbara Gasior & Aaron Carter will be entertaining visitors at lunchtime on both days, with Doctor Jazz playing on Saturday afternoon and Blue Bridge on Sunday morning.

Early-bird tickets for the fair cost £5 per person, with under-12s going free. For more details, log on to
