A firm favourite in the heart of North Wales is coming back for 2013 and is sure to be as much juicy fun as the last one. In its 4th year, the Denbigh Plum Feast will be a treat for anyone visiting the area who wants to get stuck in!
Thanks to an itinerant year in 2009, the local festival has gone on to be a winner with locals each year and has become bigger each time. From its humble beginnings as a simple stall day, the Plum Festival has evolved into an excellent weekend out for the whole family.
The rural town of Denbigh is known for its unique and has one specialised to it: The Denbigh Plum. It is uncharacteristic in its size, being relatively large for quite a small fruit and is infamous for its peculiar golden spots – a trait that the people of Denbigh proud themselves on. No more so than Peter Jones who said, “They taste totally different to other plums, much sweeter, and they’re round rather than egg shaped.”
This special aspect of Denbigh is now annually celebrated and is a great attraction for all the family. More than simply just an exhibition of plums, there are plenty of fun activities to keep everyone busy, no matter the age. Whether it’s arts and crafts you’re after or if you just fancy chowing down on some lovely local produce, there’s plenty to enjoy. Along with this there will be workshops for young people in the area, talks to highlight the surrounding area as well as demonstrations for your fascination. There will be performances available to kids and organisers have also said there may be comedy shows which are sure to have one or two plum puns for your funny bone.
Over the Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of November, make sure you go plum crazy at this fantastic occasion.
