Presteigne Food & Flower Festival
Bank Holiday Monday 6 May 2019 10am - 4pm
This year’s event will again take place in and around Presteigne’s town centre.
With free entry and free parking it is a great day out and an opportunity to meet local food and drink producers as well as visiting open gardens in Presteigne. In addition there will be plant and other garden themed stalls.
Various workshops, demonstrations and talks with live music complete the day’s varied programme.
At last year’s festival, the sun shone and food and plant stalls lined the pretty streets of Presteigne. The shops threw open their doors, and the town thronged with bigger crowds than it has ever seen before. Street food stalls occupied the courtyard behind St Andrew’s Hall where the churchyard was full of families eating picnics on the grass in the sunshine.
