Paid workshops and tastings

You need an extra ticket for most food workshops and tastings to cover the materials used. Tickets will be for sale online on each page and this page (below) up to 30 minutes before the workshop or tasting starts. If any tickets are left then we will sell them at the food workshops location.

We no longer have a separate counter at the festival for purchase of food tickets. All pre-sales occurs online.
