Burwell Museum will be celebrating the beginning of autumn by hosting a Harvest Fair on September 28.

Local producers, including Burwell’s Women’s Institute, will be showcasing their wares from 11am-5pm and there will be a chance for visitors to discover harvest customs and join in with traditional crafts.

Guests will also have a chance to learn how to brew beer from scratch or join volunteers in a pop-up pub for a free pint or soft drink.

There will also be live folk music and a barbecue.

A spokesman said: “Taste and try goods before you buy, and even pick up tips on making bread and chutney. This could be a chance to start stocking up for Christmas.”

Admission to the event costs £4 for adults and £1.50 for children. Season ticket holders enter free.
