FESTIVE flavours will be the order of the day at an event next month.
On Saturday and Sunday, November 25 and 26, Athelhampton House will host the Dorset Food & Drink Christmas Fair.
Organisers say visitors will be dazzled with a showcase of festive offerings, alongside a heart-warming Christmas atmosphere, all wrapped up in a fabulous location with music and tasty seasonal treats to sample and buy.
“With a curated lineup of their members and guest stallholders, selling locally made food, drink, and artisanal gifts – it’s a great way to get to know the people who make, bake, brew, cook, sew, grow, craft, make and create lovely things,” a spokesperson said.

“Whether it’s local cheese, funky craft ales, seasonal treats, interesting liqueurs, a unique piece of jewellery, or perhaps something beautiful or functional made from upcycled items – there are plenty of gift ideas, stocking fillers and hot food & drink to keep you going.
“Plus, it’s a great way to support your local producers and makers.”
Barbara Gasior & Aaron Carter will be entertaining visitors at lunchtime on both days, with Doctor Jazz playing on Saturday afternoon and Blue Bridge on Sunday morning.
Early-bird tickets for the fair cost £5 per person, with under-12s going free. For more details, log on to www.athelhampton.com/events.
