Members of the CVBA network and CI supporters are invited to partake in light drinks and snacks while enjoying this beautiful 30-acre site, or truly soak yourself in history by stepping into their 18th Century Tavern and try a genuine historic charcuterie, stew and perhaps even a drink tasting or two.
CI focuses on Culture and Nature, and so will celebrate the Welsh and Irish holidays (Saint David’s Day March 1st, Saint Patrick Day March 17th) with this mixer with meals and drinks inspired by both cultures. Contact us here, to RSVP.
