The third Festival Fringe beautifully complements the core weekend programme. Details available online from 15 July. Celebrate the joy of food and drink across the whole community. You can taste an edible hat, buy dishes for your favourite dishes, or learn new cookery skills. Or you can simply fill up on the best of Monmouthshire’s produce with one of several festive menus. Abergavenny’s churches, galleries, shops and restaurants have once again put together an exciting programme of Fringe events, lasting from the end of August right through to beyond the main Festival weekend. Prepared with care and served with delight, this is a great way to enrich your Festival experience.
This week’s featured event: Wine, Walking & Wildlife: Step aboard the minibus and visit two interesting farms near Llangovan in central Monmouthshire. First stop will be Alan & Ceri Morgan’s Gadr Farm. Alan has won awards for his wildlife farming and there will be a chance to look at his work during the 2-mile walk around the farm. Next will be a visit to the Morgans’ neighbours, Frank and Leigh Strawford, at Wernddu Vineyard. A vineyard tour (and a chance to see their herd of alpacas) will be followed by a tasting of their wine, cider and perry, and a sandwich lunch (provided.) . Book online.
The Fringe Programme has been coordinated by Monmouthshire County Council Tourism Department. Experience the culinary joys of the county with their foodie breaks.
