Our much-loved local Community Feast is back (last held in 2019) and it’s happening next month on Sunday 14 May (3.00pm – 7.30pm). All tickets to be sold in advance. Buy e.tickets now. Adults: £16.50 Children (12 and under): £10.00. If you live in Abergavenny, a limited number of tickets can be bought in person from the Angel Bakery.
This get-together is all about conviviality and the sharing of good food with great local credentials. Bring your own knife, fork, spoon, plate and bowl. Bring your friends. Make new ones.
So what’s the food offering? Angel Bakery bread and oil, slow-cooked shoulder of lamb, roast new potatoes, aioli and seasonal sides. Vg option: filo parcels. Rhubarb trifle is the dessert, with a vg alternative. Menu choices can be made when you buy tickets. Chesters Wine Merchants will be running a bar with reasonably priced bottles of wine for sale. Glasses provided.
The very first feast took place in 1999 with rows of trestle tables set out in our beautiful Victorian Market Hall. It will be a similar set-up this year, with the addition of table-top artists’ decorations commissioned by Peak Cymru providing the finishing touch. Our own fabulous annual Festival installation (theme: kitchen gardens) created by Bettina Reeves and team will be hanging from the rafters.
Kim Waters, AFF Chief Exec says, ‘Join us and celebrate everything that we have in the Abergavenny area: a close sense of community, our great food and hospitality story and yes the Festival too, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. The Feast is also an opportunity to say thank you to the many local people – individuals and organisations – who have helped the Festival grow, including Abergavenny Town Council and Monmouthshire County Council (not least the team who manage the Market Hall).’
