Abingdon Abbey Buildings

Plot to Plate Community Festival

9th July at the Abbey Buildings

“Grow it, cook it, share it, love it!”

Come and join our new festival – a celebration and a learning experience.

Our Plot to Plate Community Festival will celebrate growing, cooking and eating vegetables. It is a chance to try new recipes, learn new growing tips, improve your cooking skills and consider rebalancing your diet. Cooking recipes with higher vegetable content is a great way to stretch the family budget and bring healthier options to your table and the savings are increased if you grow your own, as well as creating a stress-busting family activity across all ages.
Plot to Plate will include fun activities for families as well as the classes, talks and tastings focused on vegetable growing, cooking and eating. The organisers want to create an event that is fun and light-hearted even though the things you can learn while you are there could have a big impact on your life, your health and the planet.

The daytime festival starts at 11am. Entry is free but we are asking people to register for the talks and workshops so that we can manage numbers.  The Long Gallery Tea Room is open for elevenses, lunch and afternoon teas. No more entries through the gate after 4.30pm. Final event of the day is Gardeners Question Time in the Unicorn Theatre starting at 4.30pm.

From 6.00pm there is a ceilidh. Dancing starts around 6.30pm until 9.30pm with a one hour break in the middle. Bar and evening meal service. Tickets £7 for adults (£3.50 for under 14s)

We advise that tickets for the ceilidh are bought in advance because numbers will be limited as the Lower Hall has restricted space. These are now on sale by clicking on the button below.


The event is being hosted by the Abbey Buildings, in partnership with One Planet Abingdon, Abingdon Carbon Cutters and Abingdon Events Partnership.
