Heritage Open Days 2021 - Edible England
Free Garden Entry on Sunday 19 September.-SOLD OUT
This theme of this year’s Heritage Open Days is Edible England and to celebrate we are going to be organising a day of tasty treats on Sunday 19 September, taking place in our walled gardens. Entry will be free all day (pre-booked slots essential), with a family trail called Food from Afar to enjoy. We will also be offering a limited number of people the chance to book into our Free Wild Cocktail Workshop, with non-alcoholic versions also available (over 18’s only).
Medieval Master Chef
Throughout Heritage Open Days (10 – 19 September) you will be able to watch a series of free fun videos we are putting together called Medieval Master Chef. Proving that monk food is better than junk food (sometimes), our cooking cannon will attempt to whip up a dish fit for a king, or possibly a peasant. See our Facebook for the videos.
Food from Afar Trail
Visitors to Torre Abbey over Heritage Open Days will be able to take a magical history tour around our palm house and gardens, learning all about the edible plants from across the globe. This fun family trail is included in your entrance price to the abbey and is also free to 1196 Club members. Collect your trail sheets from our Welcome Desk.
Wild Cocktail Making - SOLD OUT
A Free wild cocktail-making class with artisan brewer and wine maker Simon Akeroyd from Yarde of Cockington. He will be using foraged ingredients from around the Torre Abbey Gardens to create some wonderful libations.
