Great value at Spring Fair this weekend

Sacrewell is celebrating spring in the countryside at its two-day event this weekend, which is inclusive with normal admission to the centre.

Across the site you’ll be able to join in Maypole and Morris Dancing, try your hand at milling and sheep shearing and relax while listening to some live music and tasting real ales, including Sacrewell’s new own brew, Miller’s Ale, which will be launched at the event.

“We have a really good working relationship with The Grainstore Brewery in Oakham and having toured their brewery last year, we decided to create our own bottled ale,” explains PR and Communications Manager, Megan Allen.

“The ale and bottle will celebrate our 18th Century grade II* listed watermill and will be a tribute to the hard working men and women of the mill.”

Children under 12 can also enter their names into the draw to become May King and Queen. There will be one winner picked in the afternoon each day and they will receive a prize and a royal tractor tour of the farm with their families, where they can wave to their loyal subjects.

Megan added: “It’s the first time we’ve had a May King and Queen at Sacrewell at the Spring Fair and we’re really looking forward to waving them off on their royal tour.

“It’s just for fun and names will be picked out of a hat. We’re working with Vicki from Paisley Flower Co in Oakham who is creating some beautiful prizes for us.”

Origin8 at Sacrewell will be cooking up a storm on the barbecue, which will be available from the cafe.

Sacrewell is just off the A1/A47 at Wansford, Peterborough and is open from 9.30am to 5pm every day with camping and caravanning pitches available for overnight visitors.
