SLOW FOOD ANGLIA SAGRA AT HOLKHAM  ESTATE

Saturday the 8th of April 2017

Slow Food Anglia is very pleased to be holding their first festival andSagra at the historic Holkham Hall Estate, home of the Coke family and the Earls of Leicester located on the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
We will be holding the Sagra at Holkham Hall along with the well known Norfolk based Bullitt Dining who are our partners for this prestigious and exciting event on Saturday 8th April 2017 in the newly refurbished Lady Elizabeth Wing on the estate.
A Sagra is an Italian festival, normally dedicated to a specific local food, often specific to that village, town or particular area of an Italian region, and it normally will be a celebration of a specific food such as olive oil, meat, fish, pasta and other local produce.  
During the Saturday there will be twenty two local East Anglian food producers present inside the venue with another six local street food vendors from Norfolk and Suffolk located outside in the large courtyard.

A day market from 10 am until 5 pm with 22 small local producers from the East Anglia region with particular focus on Norfolk ones. There will also be street food stand outside the main entrance in the garden. Producers will be selected on the base of  Slow Food principles of good, clean and fair and we aim to have a vast range of different producers representing the whole Anglia Region. During the day there will also be cookery demo and free tasting on a dedicated area of the Market. Entrance is FREE but there will be a £3 car parking charge from Holkham.

In the evening starting from 7 pm there will be an Italian Sagra Style dinner featuring lots of the producers that will attend the market on the day and many of the Slow Food Ark of Taste products for the East Anglia Region. 

You will need to buy a ticket to attend the evening Sagra style dinner that will start at 7 pm.  Price is £35 per person for an incredible four course menu. Drinks are NOT included but you will be able to purchase them separately at the bar either by the glass or bottle during the day and evening. There will be a choice between red, white and fizzy Italian organic wines and local ciders and beers from a local brewery. Slow Food Members will also get a £5 voucher when buying their tickets to be spent at the bar. 

The menu will be prepared by Chef Mark Matless who has recently joined the Slow Food Chef Alliance and becoming the first Slow Food Chef Alliance member for the Anglia region. His catering company, Bite the Bullit, has been a supporter and member of our Slow Food Anglia Approved Business Scheme for several years.
