Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn’t come from a store.” – Dr. Seuss

Join us for the 12 Days of Christmas

"Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words." Harlan Miller. 

It means that 3.3 million penguins worth of plastic is wasted at Christmas. This is detrimental to the magic of Christmas, the environment, how children see waste and the joy of future generations. 

So do something different this year and create your very own Christmas Goodies from delicious treats to making your own decorations.

Explore the outdoors with our Festive Challenges and cosy up in the kitchen to create delicious Christmas treats. Inspire your little elves to gain magical knowledge and understanding through exploration and play. 

Our family-friendly recipes encourage children to find confidence in the kitchen and create tasty treats they can be truly proud of sometimes with a little mischief too like Truffle Sprouts! 

Wrap up for wintery walks and get outside with our outdoor activities, discover a new sense of wonder for frosty mornings; bright, fresh afternoons and clear moonlit nights. 

Our family focussed activities are perfect for little elves from 2-12 and their Parents and Grandparents with some adult recipes too.  Inspire them to get outside and enjoy experimenting in the kitchen with our bite-sized recipes, crafts and activities. 

"Imogen and Duncan aren't your average foragers and chefs. They are funny, make it real and I feel part of their family. They make me feel human as they don't pretend to be perfect. We love their challenges and make so many memories. Our only regret is not finding them sooner "

How the 12 Days of Christmas Food Festival Works

Our Elves will send over a downloadable Christmas Welcome Pack, Activity Pack and Christmas Cookbook. Each booklet is stuffed with Santa-approved activities: from Christmas colouring-in to wonderful word searches. 

Each morning at 10 our team of Tinklers will go LIVE from their Christmas Home to keep you up to date on each day's activities. 

Each Elf approved dish will be crafted with our head chef Duncan showing you how! From his best selling Cranberry Hot Sauce to wonderfully Christmas Clementines. They make the perfect home made gifts to give to friends. 

Each exciting recipe or craft is designed too ignite you and your childs imagination and we promise it won't cause carnage in the kitchen!  You can choose to give some of your dishes a boozy adult addition. 

Your children will be delighted at the magic they conjour and you will be in awe of their smiling faces. Create memories that last a lifetime and spark curiosity for the natural world. 

Book by Monday the 6th of December to get all this for only £14.  For an extra £4 you can choose to add on our best selling Hedgerow Festival Book (normal RRP retail price for the book alone is £14.99)

“Thank you so much, we’ve had the most amazing time at the  Festival, the videos have made us so happy too. We’ve had a few unplanned foraging moments, where we’ve emptied our water bottles on our bike rides to fill it with foraging delights. We’ve enjoyed the cordial, rosehip custard with some blackberry crumble, plus this morning we made the most delicious elderberry, blackberry basil yoghurt but swapped the toast for pancakes! Thank you again from the covey of Partridges - we also found some shark teeth fossils this week.”
