Siesta Fiesta! Enjoy a taste of Spain at Eat Cambridge

May 1, 2014

New this year to the Eat Cambridge Festival Fringe is a fantastic event hosted by our friends at Cambridge Wine Merchants and Childerley Estates on Sunday 18 May 2014. The ‘Taste at Childerley: Siesta Fiesta!’ event will focus on the food, wines and sherries of Spain.

Siesta Fiesta

Enjoy the rich variety of authentic cuisine, wines, flamenco, and Fino as Childerley Long Barn (in Dry Drayton) is transformed into a lively Spanish fiesta for all the family. Come along on Sunday 18 May between 12 noon and 6pm and take your pick of food and drink stalls and samples, tutored tastings, and sherry masterclasses. We recommend buying a picnic from the fabulous Spanish fare on offer and taking a siesta in the beautiful grounds. There’ll be music and entertainment going on all afternoon so why not make a day of it and soak up the party atmosphere of a true Spanish feria!

We know it is hard for some of you Cambridge folk to get out to the villages so we’ve arranged a shuttle mini-bus service from the city centre out to Childerley Long Barn throughout the day, kindly provided by festival friends Airport Lynx. The mini-buses will transport you in style from Cherry Hinton Road and Bridge Street branches of Cambridge Wine Merchants. So, all you have to do now is book your tickets and turn up!
