Great British Food, Drink & Craft Fair
23rd – 25th April
Warwick Castle is to celebrate all that’s great and good about our green and pleasant land with its first ever St George’s Day celebration now confirmed.
The Great British Food and Craft Fair will be held on 23-25 April and aims to showcase some of the best British exports.
Guests can enjoy cookery demonstrations across the weekend, including demos from celebrity chef Richard Fox, who will be sharing his best recipes to prepare an array of great British classic dishes.
For those guest who fancy themselves as a wine or beer connoisseur, regular tasting sessions will be held, where guests can learn the how to refine their palates and how to make the right beverage choice to accompany their favourite meal.
Children will be able to busy their hands with an array of hands-on activities, including the Make 'n' Bake Cookery Area and a Craft Make ‘n’ Take Area and Tile Painting, where crafty kids can take home creations, from jam tarts and plaster of paris models and money boxes.
In addition to the ‘see and do’ activities that will be on offer, guests can also enjoy watching the spectacular Chainsaw Sculptor, Carrie Yuen, in action. Guests can witness her transform logs into masterpieces; from tigers and crocodiles to owls and tortoises. Guests will also be able to purchase her timber creations on the day.
inspired by the new Alice in Wonderland film!
My new 'Woof Wash' soap bars are scented with Lemongrass & Rosemary to help your pooch smell gorgeous. The biscuits are made by the 'Doggy Cookie Co' from Leicestershire who make natural treats for your doggies!! There were a few large dogs who passed the stall and were having a good ole sniff at those lovely treats!!

The first soap is swirled with pink clay and scented with Lavender, Eucalyptus, Ginger & Rosemary. The second soap is good ole Geranium and Rosehip. And lastly, this bar was made with Goat's milk and cocoa powder and scented with some deep spicey scents of clove, ginger & Myrrh...umm!
To obtain this 'in demand' oil, huge areas of rainforest are cut down and burned. The single, greatest threat to the survival of wild Orangutans is the clearing of entire forests to make way for plantations. Orangutan habitats are disappearing at an alarming rate resulting in 5,000 Orangutans dying each year...within 10 years wild Orangutans will be extinct!
This is my reason for not using any Palm oil in any of my products. To help this cause Mad About Nature has adopted an Orangutan from BOS (Borneo Orangutan Survival) who are committing to saving these fantastic creatures. I am donating monthly to the cause to help pay for the centre, staff, food & medicines.

Be aware of what you are buying...check labels and ask producers if they use Palm oil!
