What’s on in Stamford and Rutland this Bank Holiday weekend Posted On 28 August 2020

Celebrate the best of local produce with Burghley House’s fine food market this Bank Holiday weekend…


For those ‘foodies’ in the know, there is only one place to be this bank Holiday weekend. The Fine Food Market at Burghley House returns, with security measures in place, this Saturday to Monday.


You will get a chance to meet a large range of fantastic suppliers of local produce including handmade cheeses, artisan coffees and ciders, luxury sweet treats and rare breed meats and sausages. In total, there will be 33 exhibitors over the Bank Holiday weekend.


This year, the Fine Food Market will be spread out over two courtyards, the Chestnut and Stable, and a one-way system will be in place as well as a maximum capacity and a QR code to track your details for the Government’s Track and Trace system.


Further afield, in Oakham, Rutland, The Grainstore Brewery will be hosting what they have called, ‘The 1st (And, hopefully, last) Grainstore ‘Socially Distanced’ Beer festival.’ The festival kicks off today until Monday offering locals a weekend of live music, comedy, food and beer all socially distanced under their marquees.
