After attending the previous Cheese & Cider festival this will be an event you won’t want to miss.
The Gower Heritage Centre has been holding successful foodie events for years now, and the Gower Good Food Festival is no exception. Back for its third year, the festival is back by popular demand, and this year will be held from Sunday 28th May to Monday 29th May. The event will play host to some of the area’s very best local producers, giving them the chance to showcase their delicious homemade produce.
Foodies won’t want to miss out on the chance to sample the local wares.
It’s not all just about sampling tasty food though, as the organisers have also lined up an array of activities to take part in, including guided tours of the mill and animal feeding sessions – the latter of which is sure to appeal to the youngest of visitors. There’s something for everyone at this family-friendly event, even blacksmith and glass blowing demonstrations and the chance to get crafty in workshops for pottery and making hand-puppets. For some retro fun, keep an eye out for Punch & Judy shows.
