Rushmere Country Park’s Tree Tops Café is proud to support local suppliers of fresh, quality produce in line with our green credentials as a local environmental charity. Now in its third year our Local Food Festival will once again take place early autumn celebrating the great quality local produce this area has to offer. We have a huge variety of food and drink on offer plus a wide range of entertainment for all the family!

Entry is free, however a £3 vehicle pay on exit fee will still apply; separate charges may apply for kids' activities. 

We're still looking for suppliers of vegan food, chocolate, truffles, fudge, jam and chutney -  to apply for a stall click here.
