Harvest festival at Kingston Lacy
THIS autumn Kingston Lacy will be hosting its first harvest festival bringing together crafts and food stalls.
Amongst the stalls at the National Trust’s Kingston Lacy on Saturday 28 September will be a range of countryside crafts, plant and food stalls.
Visitors are invited to reap the rewards of their own harvests by bringing their own apples to have them pressed.
There will be several competitions for visitors to enter including a conker championship, a nut-free Dorset apple cake competition and a largest pumpkin competition.

Jo Edmond, organiser of the Harvest festival and Growing Spaces Fundraiser and Events-coordinator said: “Why not put some of the best methods from your childhood to the test by bringing along your finest conkers to enter this fun competition and become the Kingston Lacy Conker Conqueror 2013.
“Alternatively there’s a chance for Great British Bake off fans to show off their own baking skills with the Apple Cake competition, which is being judged by the acclaimed Lucy Young - co-author of Mary Berry’s cookbook ‘At Home’. Finally, there will be the largest pumpkin competition where visitors can see if their prize pumpkin really is the biggest in Dorset.”
In addition to the competitions there will be plenty for children to take part in and a children’s zone with craft activities.
Each competition entry will cost £1 and all proceeds will go to the Community Growing Spaces project. Competitions are open to all ages and entries must be submitted by 1pm.
Entry to the Kingston Lacy grounds free between 10.30 – 11.30am.
