Autumn Food and Drink from the hEdge – part of the public art project taking place around Hilperton and Paxcroft Mead
Celebrate our hEdges with us. Following the success of our event in the spring, this is another chance to join award winning chefs Matthew & Jack from the Ethicurian restaurant to see what autumn can offer the urban forager.
Chef Matthew Pennington & award winning drinks maker Jack Adair Bevan from the Ethicurian will reconnect to historic hedgerows that have provided free foodstuffs to us for centuries.
This event is part of the hEdges art project that is recreating and marking the unique hedgerow heritage of Hilperton and Paxcroft Mead. Find out more about the other artwork appearing around Hilperton on the day.
