You've missed this event
As one of the only asparagus-themed food festivals in the UK, you’ll surely be delighted to know that, on the back of 2014’s successful event, Asparafest will return even bigger and better at Ashdown Farm in Badsey on 30th and 31st May 2015. This not-for-profit festival, now going into its third year, helps out local good causes like the Evesham Bell Tower Appeal in order to keep the surrounding areas looking their best. 2014’s festival was a real occasion for the community, with two stages hosting live bands as well as celebrity appearances from CBeebies’ Mr Bloom for the kids and TV foodie Stefan Gates for the mums. Who knows which personalities will be gracing the festival in 2015? Even if asparagus isn’t your thing, there will be loads more on offer. Expect attractions such as gorgeous vintage vehicles, a fun fair for the kids, a variety of arts and crafts stalls for creative types, as well as talks and demonstrations on everything from local foods to real ales and ciders. Get your kids excited about vegetables with planned appearances from Gus, the world famous (erm) Asparaman and the Asparafairy (good Lord). Also expected is the all-important crowning of the asparagus king and queen, a less unabashed event that the little ones will enjoy. If you didn’t catch Asparafest this year, make sure you pop it into your diary for 2015 now so that you can celebrate one of the UK’s favourite vegetables in style.
