Food, craft and wood will be demonstrated and on sale as a popular festival returns this year post-lockdown with even more to offer.

Living Heritage Events is back in Sandringham next week (August 6-8) catching up on lost time with a whole new programme of shows. 

This year, the programme includes a new festival, with two of the previous events combined into one. 

Named the 'Sandringham food craft and wood festival', Living Heritage believe it has a ‘tremendous’ line up of attractions. 

A spokesperson for Living Heritage Events said: “Easter was too early to start our events this year with the Sandringham craft and wood fair, which proved to be successful back in 2019.
