Workshops for children will be held on the hour from 12 noon-4pm.  This year our theme is street food where we will be taking a little influence from some home grown produce available at the festival.  On the menu will be Glamorgan sausages made with Welsh cheese, leeks, breadcrumbs and egg, wrapped up with shredded salad, a tomato salsa, and a summer herb mayo. Please book your place at the food theatre, as space is limited.

We will also have the Children’s Festival Food Art Gallery, with a daily prize draw for the best foodie poster, courtesy of John Lewis.
