Spring into new events for April

April 2017 events

Tomorrow I will be sampling ALL the gin at a festival in Leamington and kicking off a month of events in April. Also on:

Guy Day

Weston Park is wishing a fond farewell to their head chef Guy Day with two special demos and tastings.

The Alchemist Birmingham

Whiskey fans will be torn between sinking a few drams at The Plough or The Alchemist who both have tastings on.

Seasons restaurant Leamington Spa

You can’t go wrong pairing craft beer with Aubrey Allen steaks, so head over to The Star & Garter in Leamington to meet the brewer too. Still in the spa town, enjoy tapas and raise funds for autism at the Season’s restaurant tapas and quiz night.

Yumlaut sausage

At Warwick Kitchen, Price’s Spices are hosting their first restaurant pop-up and  in the Custard Factory you’ll find street food fans tucking into everything from German sausages to curries, these are both brand new events.

Eastnor-Chilli-Festival

You’ll have to wait until the end of April to show off your chilli-eating skills at Eastnor Castle’s Chilli Festival.

My top tips for what to do are always popular, so as usual please check with the venues on ticket availability and enjoy filling your bellies!
