Hosted in unique spaces F.E.A.S.T. [Farming. Environment. Agriculture. Sustainability. Tabled] brings people together and encourages debate by linking social, environmental, scientific and cultural thinking in an artful way. Created with my sister Liz, a scientist and agricultural consultant, in response to the lack of understanding across sectors. F.E.A.S.T. builds on our individual specialisms and our roles as farmers.
F.E.A.S.T always incorporates the following elements:
A weekend take-over of a unique community based venue.
A curated exhibition of 2 artists relevant to F.E.A.S.T themes, open across the weekend, that enables audiences to meet the artist and enjoy a free afternoon tea.
A collaboration with cooks who create a dinner that offers a social atmosphere and an opportunity to exchange ideas.
Each meal is opened with a specific provocations from both the arts and science.
We welcome guests with a wide range of interests, backgrounds and specialisms.
Locally sourced ingredients, including surplus food are used in the production of plant and animal-based dishes.
To date we have live events at Uffington Village Hall and Caythorpe and Frieston VIllage Hall.
During lockdown we also hosted a ‘F.E.A.S.T on ideas’ event via Zoom.
