Following on from the success of our first Cotswolds Food and Drink Fayre last year, we are now planning an even bigger and better event for 2017.
Last year we had more than 30 exhibitors over the two days, many giving away samples as well as selling their locally produced artisan food and drink products. They were impressed by the large numbers of visitors who enjoyed spending money on the tasty and innovative items and all the exhibitors want to return in 2017. Our 2016 Cotswolds Food and Drink Fayre was such a success partly because of the GWR members who came along with their partners, families and friends to support us.
This year we are planning to have 10 new exhibitors to make the event an even greater success.
There will be keenly priced and well-packaged gifts from the Fayre that will make ideal Christmas presents.
The Fayre will be held in the Toddington Station car park and free parking and free admission to the Fayre will apply again this year. Visitors can also enjoy a trip along the line to Laverton, Winchcombe and Cheltenham Racecourse at normal ticket prices. We will be operating the Red Timetable with two steam trains running plus a diesel railcar.
Examples of Cotswolds food varieties will include local cheeses and chutneys, honey and jams, puddings, pies, cakes, pastries, biscuits, bacon, sausages, sausage rolls, gluten-free and vegetarian options, chillies and spices, herbs, mustards and oils, chocolates and cookies, fruit juices and yoghurts, milk and butter, ciders, perries and beers, gins and wines, and creative hand-made ready meals - all at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway’s Toddington Station.
So, prepare your taste buds
