An award-winning farm shop is planning a spectacular celebration of locally produced food and drink at Beverley Minster to raise funds for charity.
Drewton’s Farm Shop, near South Cave, is staging a harvest festival concert on the evening of Friday 4 October to coincide with the business’s third anniversary.
Five charities will benefit from proceeds raised at the event, which boasts a line-up featuring Howden-based tenor Steven Goulden and his accompanist Peter Sproston, local soprano Lucy Bates, the Lyndhurst School Choir and musicians, the Salvation Army, the Pocklington School Music Theatre Society and a local gospel choir.
Drewton’s proprietor Katie Taylor said: “The harvest was traditionally celebrated by eating, merriment and giving food donations to those less fortunate in our communities, so this concert is our own unique take on that idea.
“Beverley Minster is an amazing setting for our event and we’ve lined up an exciting programme of musical entertainment for the evening, with performances by local choirs, solo artists, musicians and actors.”
The concert will be followed by an opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine and tasty Yorkshire cheeses, as well as meet a variety of local food producers.
There will also be a raffle and an opportunity to speak with representatives of the charities that Drewton’s Farm Shop is supporting, which include The Leeds Teaching Hospital’s Lymphoedema Service, GoKidsGo!, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Alzheimer’s Society and Dove House Hospice. Tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for ten to 16-year-olds and can be bought from Drewton’s or by calling 01430 425079.
