Saturday and Sunday will again see the Priory Centre host Masterclasses  and the Courtyards will be the transformed in to a market of the most amazing food and drink products.



During the month of September, the month of Harvest Thanksgiving and Food Festival,  we will be displaying the Bible Societies display Creation: A Celebration, as we give thanks to God for providing us with the fruits of the earth.

The 42 breathtaking panels of embroidery, painting and mixed-media are a luminescent piece of storytelling which took two years to complete.
