So we think about festivals and we think live music, great food, kids entertainment, sunshine and an awesome venue.... 

So the newest festival bought to you by the Shropshire Festivals team is all of that 'on steroids'. From the team behind the Shrewsbury Food Festival and Shropshire Kids Festival this event promises to be an entertainment extravaganza with all of the ingredients of their best festivals topped off with the uniqueness that a venue like Harper Adams can bring to the table. Focusing on the expertise of each of the departments at the university the festival is something special for the whole family that has never been done before.

Starting with FREE entry this event is all about fun mixed up with a dollop of education. Imagine travelling the journey of 'the cheese sandwich' from getting hands on and milking the cow through to making butter, mixing curds and whey, discovering the taste zones on your tongue and the hands washing hygiene. Next you need to visit the tractor in the field and see how the wheat is planted, harvested and processed through to flour. How does yeast and fermentation work and what makes a loaf of bread? Every element of the food journey will be investigated with big shiny tractors to the historical vintage machines of the past. Learn how to programme robots, meet animals, enjoy a pollination trail or chill out on the grass with a glass of gin and watch the live music. With over 50 free activities this a festival not to be missed for the whole family. This is a great opportunity to come and explore, to learn and most importantly have fun!
