What to expect

Feast is a two day festival celebrating food, drink and entertainment, all inspired by Waddesdon’s creator, Baron Ferdinand’s annual garden parties.

The event will see the north front of Waddesdon Manor transformed with decorated tables for visitors to take a seat at and enjoy a picnic or sample some of the food on offer from one of the artisan food and wine stalls.

There will be a range of performances, as well as activities for all the family.

Waddesdon Manor is described as synonymous with entertaining, having been built for Baron Ferdinand’s infamous ‘Saturday to Monday parties’. Guests will be able to celebrate both culinary delights, and the picturesque setting of Waddesdon, plus explore the grounds and walk through the manor to find out about its long history.
