Waddesdon Manor



Enjoy a taste of history at Waddesdon Manor’s Feast weekend this June. This two day festival is a celebration of food, drink and entertainment inspired by ‘The Baron’s Treat’ where Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild would host local families in the grounds for annual garden parties with games, shows and music.

Visitors are invited to take a seat at the elaborately decorated outdoor dining table and enjoy a picnic or sample some of the food on offer from one of the 50 handpicked artisan food and drink stalls that boast the best produce available from the local area and beyond. Browse the stalls for something to take home with you, from handmade fudge, cheese and bread to artisan drinks… it’s one tasty line-up!

Celebrating not only culinary delights, but also the magnificent setting of Waddesdon, walk through the Manor as if a guest of Ferdinand’s and explore Waddesdon’s history with our specially devised trail.

There will also be a variety of roaming, captivating performances that will entertain all audiences as well as musical entertainment including a jazz stage situated by our Aviary. A list of the unusual and theatrical performers can be found on our website, from a comedy waiter duo to a Ragroof tea dance.

In addition we will be running family craft activities including poetry workshops and cookery classes. We will have Root Camp who will be running some very special hands-on cookery courses for 14-21 year olds. You can get stuck in and gain a real knowledge of food; its sourcing, preparation and enjoyment.

Feast promises to be a banquet for all the senses.
