Last Sunday, me and The Geek ventured to our local RAF base that was holding a food festival over the weekend. Me and Ginge are massive foodies; we’re huge wine drinkers and cheese eaters so these festivals are always lethal on our bank balance when we go.
With over fifty different exhibitors at the festival, we were well and truly in our element. It was pouring down with rain but we still decided to go. The stalls were all outside under marquees and because of the rain, it wasn’t too busy so we could have a chat to the exhibitors and really sample their products.
At the festival, there was entertainment through out from the afternoon. We grabbed a beer and some food to watch the Cosford Voluntary Band which was fab, even with the rain pouring down. They did such a variety; from military songs to Skyfall. It’s not our usual taste but it was lovely just sitting there and watching them.
There was a variety of different products to try. One of my favourite stalls was The Tipsy Tart that sold infused liqueurs. I’m a huge gin fan and it’s always my drink of choice. They introduced me to my new favourite thing: lavender infused gin with prosescco. All gin fans – this is the dream and you all need to get on it.
My other favourite stall was The Friendly Dog Company. They sold the most adorable dog treats and they were all natural ingredients. I fell in love with her gingerbread man shaped treats and couldn’t resist getting Rufus one. He demolished it when we got home so I’m really sad I didn’t pick up anymore!
We picked up a few more treats along the way. Luckily for my bank account, the card machines weren’t working too well because of the weather so we were limited on what we could get. Still, it was a really lovely way to spend the afternoon together and getting to try different products.
