A Midsummer Night’s Dram

Midsummer Trimmed

Experience a world of distilled luxury, with six drams of premium single malt whisky from around the globe. From Scotland via Sweden to Japan, virgin casks to heavily smoked, we’ll have something special for every palette.

Tickets are £25 in advance from our online store, or in person from the Love’s Farm House office (weekdays 9am to 3pm, 9am to 12pm during school holidays).

SMALL PRINT: Over 18s only; under 25s will need ID on the door. Sorry, no refunds. Whiskies shown above may not be what is included on the night (but if gives a good idea). Admittedly, 12 July isn’t midsummer night, but you’re also getting more than one dram.

Lighting Up the Love’s Farm House Garden

RidgeonsThanks to a grant from Ridgeons Community Fund, the garden at Love’s Farm House is now bedecked with LED strip lighting along the trellis and pergola arch. It makes a massive difference for groups using the garden after dark, including private parties, people attending our regular Friday bar nights, as well as community events such as our Great Get Together barbecue (22 June from 4:30pm). A big thank you to Ridgeons, and to Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, which administered the grant.

Friday 10 May 2019, shows at 11am and 1:30pm

BUY TICKETS HERE

Gin lovers rejoice, science geeks get giddy with excitement, for it’s the return of Gin Lab: St Neots’ premier gin-tasting experience.

Our team of intrepid lab technicians have spent the last six months painstakingly hunting down and analysing the best boutique gins from around the world. We’re going high end this time around, so while there’s slightly less quantity on the tasting menu, the quality will be off the chart.

Your £20 ticket will give you a half-measure taste of eight sumptuous gins, plus tonic and a plate full of garnishes with which to adorn your glass. Try the distiller-recommended garnish, follow our lab technician’s advice or come up with your own experimental concoctions. When you’ve found your winning combination, your ticket also gets you a double gin and tonic from the bar (and you can buy more too). A world of scientific discovery awaits!

Over 18s only; under 25s will need ID on the door. Sorry, no refunds.

Tickets are £20 in advance from our online store, or in person from the Love’s Farm House office (weekdays 9am to 3pm, 9am to 12pm during school holidays).

Faces of St Neots

Faces of St Neots row.jpg

Love’s Farm House is hosting a portrait challenge! We want to see the Faces of St Neots in all their diversity: young, old, black, white, happy, sad. It might be a painting, drawing, photo, digital illustration, collage… anything goes, as long as it fits on an A4 page (portrait orientation) and is suitable for display in our foyer. Self-portraits are welcome but we don’t want quick selfies: think about how to capture your (or your subject’s) personality.

Portraits must be a single face of someone from St Neots, head and shoulders only. Drop your submissions off at Love’s Farm House (Mon-Fri 9am-3pm) or email digital images to ben@lovesfarmhouse.co.uk. Please include your name and contact info, plus the name of your subject (with their permission). The deadline is 29 March.

You can create your portrait at any time, but if you’re looking for inspiration, join us for a Portrait Workshop on Saturday 16 March, 3:30-5:30pm at Love’s Farm House. We’ll have artists, designers and photographers on hand to help you create your masterpiece. Adults and children are all welcome and there’s no need to book – just drop in, and don’t forget to bring a friend or family member to use as your subject.

All portraits will be exhibited at Love’s Farm House in April, kicking off with a launch event on Saturday 6 April. A few of the best portraits will remain on display in our foyer for a longer period.
