2017 Highlights


On The Stage


Food & Drink


  • Griffiths Brothers

    A local gin distillery based in the Buckinghamshire village of Penn Street. Their goal is simple. To bring modern distilling techniques to the place where they grew up. They have always been fascinated by the craft of gin making. For Griffiths it’s about the excitement of capturing new flavour combinations in a pure, crystal clear spirit. And by applying science and technology they think they’ve found the perfect blend of craft and quality.
  • Jim & Jules

    In 2008 Jim and Jules were planning to get married but were a little short of funds. Jim’s parents had a farm with a huge apple tree. The apples were going to waste so the couple ‘borrowed’ them and soon whipped up their first batch of ‘Scrummy Apple Chutney’. Coming second in a local competition spurred them on and the pair started selling their chutney at local farmers markets. Sourcing their ingredients locally and seasonally, often from the hedgerows, the Cheddington based couple’s range has expanded to include ‘Onion and Chilli Gubbins’ and ‘Pops Perfect Piccalilli’ to name but a few.
