Now I don’t know much about this one because it’s the inaugural food festival – but I’m always up for another event that revolves around food and if it’s in a lovely historic location, even better. Watch this space!

Something a bit different for you – Cafe Vin Cinq in Rugby are holding a ‘Glitz Glam Psychic Soiree’. Apparently you’ll be able to “explore the other side” with the help of several talented clairvoyants and psychics. You’ll also get a glass of Prosecco on arrival, be able to sip specially-made cocktails and enjoy some of Cafe Vin Cinq’s food. Tickets are free and more info is here.

I love a food festival and this one sounds pretty good. More than 50 stalls, including street food and local produce plus Santa, reindeer, bars, entertainment, workshops, gin tastings and more. The perfect warm-up for Christmas!

One for you horror lovers out there. This immersive dining experience will see you join Dr Frankenstein at the Old Grammar School in Coventry for food and drink at a ‘secret laboratory’. It’s described as a ‘no holds barred immersive theatrical experience’ in the medieval surroundings of the Old Grammar School.
You’ll get a “darkly humorous bodily buffet” as well as experimental cocktails surrounded by taxidermy from the Herbert’s collection.
Don’t worry, all the food is vegan – despite its appearance – and they can cater for other dietary requirements. Tickets are £28 plus booking fee. Visit their website for more details.
