What is Fed Up February?

What is Fed Up February?

Fed Up February is designed to lift the spirits at the tail end of the cold winter months, when we are all feeling like Christmas was ages ago, and we cannot wait for Spring……..but will Spring ever come?!

The idea came from a friend, Roz, who every year hosts a ‘Fed Up February’ party in the village where she lives and its always in……yes, you’ve guessed it – February! The house is filled with music, food, family and friends and it always feels fun, cosy and uplifting.

So, our Fed Up February event is designed to capture that atmosphere and provide a welcome opportunity to meet with family and friends, share great food, listen to live music and enjoy a drink or two along the way.

Think of it like a pop up restaurant, where you get to sit at communal tables with your friends (or leave them behind and sit with someone else’s friends if they seem like more fun)!

We’ll be serving a fabulous 5 course menu of delicious Indian food prepared by the acclaimed cook and teacher, Lajina Leal of Lajina Masala. It’s a BYO (Bring Your Own) event where you bring your own drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic to share with your friends, or just enjoy with your meal.

All this is topped off by live Indian music from a fabulous sitar and tablar player.

Forget fine dining – this is fun dining!

Fed Up February is great food, great music, friends, drinks and good times!

Proms & Prosecco in the Park Returns for 2018

Proms & Prosecco in the Park Returns for 2018

Proms & Prosecco in the Park on 9th September 2016 was attended by around 1,600 Promenaders and it was so much fun that we’re doing it again in 2018!

Prom-goers were treated to performances from Alexandra Jayne, the Cosford Military Wives Choir, Prima Wind Quintet, Camerata of London Chamber Orchestra Amadeus Brass Quintet, tenor Jack Foley and soprano Emily Haig. Jack and Emily were joined by many of the other performers for a fabulous finale including all the Last Night of the Proms favourites, with flags waving, audience singing and lots of twinkling lights.

Feedback from audience members included:

“Just wanted to congratulate you and thank you for such a great evening at Chetwynd Deer Park on Saturday. A good time was had by all!”

“Congratulations on the success of your fabulous event. We loved every minute of it. Even with the weather it did not dampen the atmosphere. The people were all so lovely from the other stall holders, your staff, to the general public. Amazing atmosphere and we would definitely love to return next year.”

“Thanks so much for a wonderful afternoon/evening, despite the rain. Excellently organised!”

“The talented entertainers off the stage were a brainwave and went down well with the many children as well as grown ups. We look forward to next year but will try harder with our picnic, compared with others ours was very lack lustre!”

Next year’s Proms & Prosecco in the Park takes place at Chetwynd Deer Park, Newport on Saturday 8th September and tickets are available now from www.fizzfestivals.com with early booking discounts available!
