Abergavenny closes its streets to traffic and fills them to the brim with wonderful, eclectic food stalls, entertainers, music, cafes and shops spilling out onto the street. Come and enjoy the weekend.
Our festival starts on Saturday 15th outside in our pop-up painting studio with Kumar Saraff, who will be painting and drawing from a still-life table of delicious foods. Come and observe a Royal Academy Schools trained artist at work.
At 1pm there will be live music by Carmina, “a superb mix of jazz, folk and celtic crossover music – taking the audience on a bewitching journey full of melodic grace and inventiveness – a brilliant band superbly fronted by vocalist Pippa Marland and guitarist Rob King” (Jack McGouran, Guinness Jazz Festival).
Inside our Food Festival Exhibitions this year are…
A Theatre of Plates – an exhibition of artist decorated vintage ceramics
A Dinner Set for an Imaginary Banquet – A small exhibition of works on paper by Cornelia O’Donovan RCA
Beautiful and Damned – photographs by Camilla Broadbent.
