As well as our numerous courses in cookery, lifestyle and crafts, Denman offers a huge range of special events and seasonal treats to surprise, tantalise and delight.
The WI Real Jam Festival is Denman’s pièce de résistance, and from humble beginnings its renown is now spreading worldwide. The WI encourages people from around the world to get into their kitchens in an effort to cook up the best jar of jam. Displays, demonstrations, tastings and prizes combine to create an unparalleled weekend festival. Denman’s Cookery School has dedicated courses in jam making year-round, so everyone can have a shot at the coveted Best in Show jar of jam.
Add to this, celebrity guest speakers, live demonstrations by famous chefs, literary lunches with published authors, days out at the races and theatre visits, and you have a snapshot of the many and varied special events continually being slotted into Denman’s calendar.
And speaking of calendars, Denman’s special events roster includes the likes of the New Year Country House Party, Christmas workshops and more. We even cater for Bridal Party Day Schools, to help you master handcrafted wedding stationary, canapés to die for or that all-important first dance. Denman offers hen parties too, if you’re looking to let your hair down in style before the big day.
