This hugely popular event is a real treat for the senses and a must-visit for foodies and gardeners.

It’s a chance to get the family down to River Cottage, to explore the farm nestled in gorgeous East Devon and to indulge in the sights, sounds and tastes of spring in the heart of the Devon countryside.

The Fair is packed full of activities and family fun – from chef demos, artisan food stalls, kids’ workshops, talks and live music to garden and foraging tours from River Cottage foraging guru John Wright.

Little ones go free and will be entertained throughout with a huge choice of child-friendly activities including falconry displays, donkey rides, felting and lucet braiding workshops, face painting, skittles and hula hooping - to name but a few.

Visitors will also be able to take a peek behind the scenes at River Cottage HQ and also enjoy a sit-down meal in the pop-up restaurant, located in the famous farmhouse itself.

The event takes place from Saturday, May 27, to Monday, May 29.
