Our Trip to Bishop Auckland Food Festival 2021

We were so pleased to be back at The Bishop Auckland Food Festival earlier in October 2021. After the festival was postponed from the spring, we feared it may have been cancelled altogether. It was great to be back with all the other traders and festival go-ers for what was a fantastic weekend (despite the weather). Read more in our latest blog!
