Opening times are 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday. Admission is £5 for adults (A family ticket costs £10) and there is ample free parking for visitors. There will be over 70 artisan food producers in attendance. Food critic, writer and Masterchef judge William Sitwell will open the event.

Stratford Food Festival welcomes Queens Park to ‘Sport of Kings’
The weather is set fair for the start of the 2014 Stratford Food Festival. Held over three days from Friday 30th May to Sunday 1st June this event really is an extravanganza for food lovers. For the second consecutive year it is being held at Stratford Racecourse, but this year it takes place alongside live national hunt racing. There are seven race jumps cards on both Friday and Saturday evening, so this really is a great opportunity to combine picking up some wonderful artisan food with a day at the races. Admission to both events costs just £10 for adults on Friday and Saturday (accompanied under 18’s are free) with no admission charge for the Sunday of the Stratford Food Festival. Queens Park Preserves can be found at stand 3 in Exhibition Tent A, right next to the course itself. We look forward to meeting old friends from the past two years and also lots of new customers. Festival trading hours are 4pm-9pm on Friday, 1pm-9pm on Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday.
As previously promised we now have further precise details on Queens Park Preserves shows over the Spring Bank holiday weekend. On Saturday and Sunday we are exhibiting at the Hertfordshire County Show at the showground in Redbourn. This two day event attracts 38,000 visitors and is open to the public from 8.30am to 5.30pm on both days. We have our own gazebo at this event (Trade stand no. 044), located next to the Food Hall on Fifth Avenue. This is very close to our location in 2013 so you know whwre we are if you purchased from us last year!
On Sunday and bank holiday Monday we are also trading in the beautiful setting of Highclere Castle in West Berkshire. This estate was the setting for the award winning Downton Abbey and this really is a stunning location. The Highclere Game & Country Fair is open between 8.30am and 6.00pm both days. You can find us in the Food Festival marquee on Avenue C.
Bank Holiday Monday also sees us at the Surrey County Show in Stoke Park, Guildford. This major one-day event attracts 40,000 visitors and you can find us in our own gazebo at stand 332 on Avenue A. This is adjacent to the main Food Hall near the Red car park/entrance.
We have special multi-buy discounts on offer at all three events this weekend and you have the opportunity to taste some of our handmade preserves. As always we are offering our ‘buy now-collect later’ service, so that you enjoy your day at the show without carrying your purchases around with you.
Keep checking our website for further details of upcoming Queens Park Preserves shows in the coming weeks. We travel the length and breadth of the country to bring our handmade preserves to you.
