Thai food at Winter Droving

We are excited to be catering at this event for the first time and will be bringing delicious Thai street food to keep you warm on this winter’s day. Jungle Curry could be one of our dishes that will certainly bring some heat into the cold evening.

Fire, Music, Masks and Mayhem in Penrith Town Centre.

On Sat 26th October Penrith is transformed with its busiest market of the year, bustling streets, roaming street performances around every corner, and top quality local, regional and national musical acts across 6 stages. This all leads up to the highlight of the day – a magical fire and lantern procession throughout the town, where thousands of people line the streets to watch the spectacle, finishing with a headline act on the main stage.

Created by Eden Arts, The Winter Droving has become one of Cumbria’s iconic cultural events seeing 20k+ attend annually. Now in its 8th year, the event has grown exponentially with audiences making the journey from all corners of the UK.
