The festival has moved to Ashdown Farm in Badsey near Evesham and has been renamed Asparafest. A 2 day festival, it is a music and food event with the ultimate focus being on asparagus.

Other traders included Stratford based Bluebird Tea Company who had a beautiful range of teas to try and buy. Also, Cheshire Cheese Company and Platinum Pancakes were present to name a few.
I also had the chance to meet one of my Twitter followers - Jemima Packington who is an Asparamancer! Jemima has the extraordinary (and very accurate) talent of being able to read your fortune by the way you throw down a bunch of asparagus! It was great to meet Jemima and experience her skill after exchanging many Tweets.

As well as all the foodie stalls, there were numerous refreshment outlets and there were plenty of activities for children. Live music was provided by various artists on the AsparaStage - great to listen to whilst sitting on the hay bales with a glass of scrumpy from The Fleece Inn's real ale & cider tent or with some asparagus ice cream from Spot Loggins.
With good weather predicted again for tomorrow, pack your picnic chairs into the car and take a drive to Asparafest and enjoy music, food and all things asparagus whilst taking in some fresh Worcestershire air.
