Pop-Up of the North at York House

27/06/2019

Pop-Up of the North is a shopping event and gathering of creative, independent makers and traders who flock from all corners of the North of the country, to come and showcase and sell their wares. The event, which will run once for 3 days in June and for a second time in September, will host approximately 2o carefully curated exhibitors at York House in Malton, North Yorkshire, one of the most historic houses in the country. The setting makes the Pop-Up a joy to visit and shop at, as it’s a destination in itself; York House has recently been restored by the Fitzwilliam Estate, but prior to this has been sitting in Malton for over 300 years. The landscaped gardens are ideal for a summer stroll, and the venue has also been utilised for wedding receptions and other grand events. Shoppers can expect a variety of exhibitors selling art and fashion, ceramics and patisserie goods, tea and furniture, such as Susi Bellamy, Trendlistr, Sessions & Co., Fitz & Fro, Michael Parkin Fine Art, Lost Tea Company, Kitty Pennybacker, Study 34 and more. As well as shopping, there’ll be a host of workshops taking place across the event. Highlights include the Modern Calligraphy course with Lonetree, luxury stationers from Yorkshire, on Friday 28th June. In this workshop, you’ll learn the tricks of the calligraphy trade and get a calligraphy kit to take home with you. The next day, Bramper Biscuitswill host a Biscuit Decorating workshop, great for kids and budding bakers. Also on Saturday, learn how to embroider with Lora Avedian, a multidisciplinary artist who’ll teach guests how to embroider and create 2D flowers, using the ‘couching’ technique. Plus, for £10, you can join the drinks reception! Find the full list of exhibitors and workshops at priddenprandevents.com When?

Rare Bird Gin Afternoon Tea

06/07/2019

Having lived and holidayed extensively in Europe, the founders of Rare Bird Distillery were struck by the outstanding quality of local food produce found there. At the same time, the appeal of the ‘usual suspects’, meaning the everyday gin brands found in the supermarket were fast losing their  appeal, and so they decided to make our own, and Rare Bird Gin was born. Soon after making this decision, the hunt was on for suitable premises, and good fortunate prevailed when they stumbled upon a derelict former stable block –not lacking in vision, and where some might see dust and debris, they saw a beautiful distillery, complete with a bar, seating, and retail space. The event includes; Gin cocktail on arrival, Full afternoon tea and two gin and tonics to taste during your afternoon tea.

Planeta Wine Dinner

15/08/2019

A wine resort in Menfi deep in the vineyards and seven apartments in the heart of Palermo’s historic centre: select the destination of your next trip in Sicily and be welcomed by the authentic Planeta’s family hospitality. For five centuries and through seventeen generations, the family has been involved with the course of agricultural evolution in the complex land of Sicily, with an approach always inclined to openness and innovation. Where too often the agricultural world has been confined to ancient ideas of social tradition and production processes, instead we have inherited, from each generation, an instinct to change and to generate positive changes around us, both with people and in the culture. In the meantime we have grown. Round the old fortress of Ulmo, where for five centuries we have cultivated our oldest land, a spark was fostered to transfer this experience and all our new ideas in the project of a new company; here, in 1985, we planted our first vineyard. Two different generations – brothers and sisters, children, nieces and nephews – work together since then, with the perfect understanding that derives not only from harmony of character and complementing of abilities, but above all from the unity of vision; love for this land, the desire to protect it and the capacity to imagine every day a new way to appreciate it. Sparkling reception followed by a 4 course dinner with matching wines.

Whitby Gin Afternoon Tea

02/11/2019

Whitby Gin was born following a camping trip in the wilderness of the Outer Hebrides in June 2017. Inspired by the islands many distilleries, Jess turned to Luke and wondered why her hometown of Whitby didn’t have one of its own. ​With Jess’ background in business planning and Luke’s experience within food manufacturing, they felt they had the skill set to produce their own local gin. ​By the time they had arrived back home in Yorkshire, they had created a business plan and ordered a small still. ​Production has since moved out of the 40 sq ft utility room where they began and to an old carthouse on a local farm. The event includes; Gin cocktail on arrival, Full afternoon tea and two gin and tonics to taste during your afternoon tea.
