Thousands of visitors enjoyed the demonstrations, advice, and free samples from stalls showcasing meat, pies, biscuits and cakes, as well as artisan spices, oils, chutneys and relishes. Chris Duffy, events manager at Lancaster Brewery esaid: “It’s incredible how popular this event has become, and with the fantastic weather, we saw thousands of visitors over the weekend, relaxing and just enjoying browsing, eating and meeting friends. “
