Burwell Museum and Windmill will be celebrating the harvest with a special themed event.

A harvest fair is taking place on Sunday, September 28, from 11am-5pm.

The day will see several short masterclasses including home beer brewing, bread and chutney making and floristry.

There will also be live folk music, and the WI will be running a stall.

Families will also be well catered for, with harvest crafts on offer, plus a ‘fork to fork’ competition to enter. Just make a harvest themed model from paper craft, food, woodwork or clay, or whatever material you fancy, and enter our ‘best in show’ competition. Prizes will be awarded for the best entries.

Admission is £4 for adults, £1.50 for children, and includes a free pint of beer or a soft drink. Other refreshments will be available from the kiosk.

Running alongside the harvest fair will be a free heritage open day event.
