Don’t Miss! Made at Welbeck 11 May 2013


In Notts, we love our local makers and producers, and this May the Welbeck Estate are inviting visitors to come out in support of all things local and join the estate for a full day’s event based entirely around produce Made at Welbeck.

On 11 May, visitors to Welbeck can enjoy a variety of activities as producers, attractions and friends of the Welbeck Estate come together to share their passion for local produce and artisan skills.

As well as being able to visit the usual attractions such as Welbeck Farm Shop, The Harley Gallery and Lime House Café, visitors can expect to enjoy additional treats including live demos, exhibitions and a chance to meet local producers and artists.

Surrounding attractions and friends of the estate will be getting involved too, with the team from Creswell Crags entertaining crowds in a 12ft yurt, and Dukeries Garden Centre next door providing summer gardening tips.

Visit the Harley Gallery to enjoy current exhibition The Bodging Project, where you’ll find examples of beautiful experimental furniture. You’ll even be able to have a go yourself at making furniture with Ready! Steady! Bodge workshops.
[Please note; places for this activity are limited and priced at £10pp]

Don’t miss the chance to visit the Harley Artist Studios too, which will be exclusively open for visitors to explore as part of Open Studio Notts 2013. You’ll be able to see artists at work, browse their wares and even have a go yourself!

The School of Artisan Food will be holding live food demonstrations throughout the day to show just how simple and fun artisan food can be, and makers from Stichelton Dairy and Welbeck Abbey Brewery will be on hand to answer any questions.

Feeling hungry following these taster sessions? Pop into the Farm Shop for all your picnic essentials, and for those little extra treats see chocolatier Shelly Preston of Boutique Aromatique in the foyer.

The Lime House Café will be open for business as usual serving light lunches, homemade cakes and drinks. The café will also be hosting a special pop-up barbecue in the courtyard, to get you in the mood for summer.

Whether it’s delicious local food or inspiring handmade products you’re looking for, you’ll find it all Made at Welbeck.

Visit the Welbeck Estate on Saturday 11 May for Made at Welbeck. Both entry and parking are FREE. The Harley Gallery, Lime House Café and Welbeck Farm Shop are open daily to visitors.
