An award-winning farm shop is planning a spectacular celebration of locally produced food and drink to raise funds for charity.

Drewton’s Farm Shop, in South Cave, is staging a harvest festival concert at Beverley Minster on the evening of Friday 4 October to coincide with the business’s third anniversary.

Among those performing at the event will be Pocklington School Music Theatre Society, the Lyndhurst School Choir and musicians, tenor Steven Goulden and his accompanist Peter Sproston and soprano Lucy Bates.

Drewton’s proprietor Katie Taylor said: “The harvest was traditionally celebrated by eating, merriment and giving food donations to those less fortunate in our communities, so this concert is our own unique take on that idea.”

The concert will be followed by an opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine and tasty Yorkshire cheeses, as well as meet a variety of local food producers.

There will also be a raffle and a chance to speak with representatives of the charities that Drewton’s is supporting, which include The Leeds Teaching Hospital’s Lymphoedema Service, GoKidsGo!, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Alzheimer’s Society and Dove House Hospice. Tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for ten to 16-year-olds and can be bought from Drewton’s or by calling 01430 425079.
