Win River Cottage Autumn Fair Tickets!

Celebrate the harvest with a trip to the River Cottage Autumn Fair on 7 – 8 September 2013!Farmhouse

The Autumn fair is a great opportunity to have a nose around River Cottage HQ and meet the gang off the telly, including Hugh himself!

There will be cookery demonstrations and talks from the team and contributors, fun activities for children, as well as a range of food, drink and artisan producers selling their wares. The team of chefs put on delicious festival food, often cooked on the barbeque or in their wood fired oven and of course there are always lashings of local beer and cider, with musicians playing throughout the day.

We’re giving away five pairs of tickets to the River Cottage Autumn Fair, and to enter all you need to do is leave us a comment below, telling us what is your favourite autumnal treat – be it a warming apple and blackberry pie, or your delicious version of cheese on toast!

To find out more about the Autumn Fair, visit the River Cottage website!

Entry closes midnight Sunday 1st September.
