Flour Festival At The Brunel

The Brunel Shopping Centre
Saturday 03 & Sunday 04 May 2014
 
Home and gardens are the talk of the town this May bank holiday weekend as The Brunel hosted its first Flour Festival.
 
A dedicated marquee in Wharf Green was the setting for a weekend of gastronomy, gardening and interior design, with demonstrations and talks attracting hundreds of visitors with great new ideas and inspiration for brightening up their homes and gardens and to tickle their taste buds.
 
Live demos, talks and craft sessions
 
Celebrity baker Tom Herbert of Channel 4’s Fabulous Baker Brothers got things started with a day of cookery demonstrations, with TV gardener David Domoney also on stage talking all things green fingered.
 
David & Ms Cupcake, the popular Melissa Morgan from London’s first entirely vegan bakery, also appeared on Sunday.

SWTV WENT ALONG TO FIND OUT MORE.
