We only have a few vacancies for our two Cradock’s events – Saturday 21st May is now full but we still have a few left for Friday 20th May.
For those who don’t know, the dinner intersperses the performance – the first act sees Fanny and Johnnie prepare the Prawn Cocktail, the second sees them struggling with the chicken and then the third …
Prawn Cocktail or Baked Stuffed Tomato
Coq-au-Vin or Mushroom Stroganoff
Black Forest Gateaux
Their last performance review was by Sheila Dillon (she presents Radio 4’s Food Programme & is generally deemed a bit iconic). She saw the Cradocks in the marquee at Food Connections on 29 April, loved it and Tweeted about it. I’ve just pulled out her comments and here they are:-
“What a great evening”
“What an experience”
“Scary Fanny. As in life …”
January saw two fund raisers for a couple of the Beaufort’s favourite
causes – St Wulfstan (the first to get slavery banned in Bristol in the 11th
Century) and the Long John Silver Trust.
The first managed to raise £100 for St Mary’s Church, Hawkesbury, on the
occasion of Wulfstan’s Saints Day (January 19th) with a banquet in his
honour in the pub.
The second, on Thursday 28th January, with a brewery visit to Cotswold
Spring’s and Severn Vale’s magnificent new home at Tortworth which raised £80 for
LJST (thanks mostly to their generosity).
The picture shows our very own Bishop of Wigan, Stan
Fillingham, getting a chair lift at the brewery with bearers Tony Harcourt
and brewery owner Mark Francombe.
Stan and Tony also appeared at our Wulfstan feast which featured Steve
Hammond’s picture / music compilation of the famous Wulfstan Windows.
Many thanks to all who attended and contributed to the two events. On the
latter we had a terrific reception at the Salutation at Ham and once again
Westward Travel ably provided the transport.
Beer expert Tom Salt provided the picture – thanks again,
Mark the landlord.
