The charity event, formerly known as Triplefest, has been running for 25 years and continues to grow year on year. There’s so much for families to get involved with throughout the weekend with a stunt show, fairground rides and a market running alongside all the attractions! No matter your interests, we guarantee there’s something for everyone from archery to the beer and music festival boasting over 40 different real ales, ciders and perry’s. There’s even a farmyard for the children to enjoy on the Sunday and Monday!

The Heaton House BIG Weekend is a fantastic combination of a beer and music festival, a variety show and a traditional country fayre all rolled into one! You can camp out all weekend for the full experience or pick up tickets for each individual day if you don’t fancy camping. Sounds of rock, reggae, Irish folk, indie, punk and pop music will fill the air across the weekend and there’s a genre for everyone! Plus it’s always great to discover new bands and local music.

Fun Wedding Food – Build Your Own Burgers!

Increasingly, we have seen a demand for more casual and sociable food options at weddings and events.
Many couples are selecting food that they love and feel represents their personal style, over more formal or traditional choices.

We love to help our clients with their special requests, and seeing them and their guests enjoy and delight in their choices makes
us very happy! Last week, we catered for the fantastic wedding of Mark and Amy at the beautiful Heaton House Farm.
They wanted a delicious and fun menu for their guests to enjoy on their special day.

We served up a scrumptious array of canapés to get everyone warmed up –

Fish and chips
Tiger prawn with pak choy, garlic and chilli
Peking duck pancakes with hoi sin sauce
Manchester Egg (a pickled egg coated in black pudding and sausage meat, and deep-fried until golden-brown)

This seemed to get everybody in the mood for more! We encouraged everyone to roll up their sleeves and enjoy some hearty
starter dishes, served on the slate or in bowls for guests to share.

Potato skins, with chicken and bbq sauce with Monterey Jack
Pork ribs with a sweet and sour sauce
Buffalo wings with a chilli sauce and blue cheese dressing

After this round, everybody was raring to go for the next course, a ‘build your own burger’. This was really fun and
everybody thoroughly enjoyed creating their burgers (and eating them of course!)

about able to fit in some delicious desserts!

This menu choice was really fun to prepare and serve, Mark and Amy’s lucky guests absolutely loved it
and everybody enjoyed the carefree and sociable style of service.

Shades of Gold

This weekend we catered for a fantastic wedding at the very beautiful country venue, Heaton House Farm. We certainly seemed to have the Midas touch. One colour kept popping up throughout the day – glorious gold!


Heaton House Farm looked stunning surrounded by a blanket of rich seasonal colours and inside, the venue looked spectacular! From the stylish gold charger plates to the gold trimmed glasses provided by our friends at Whitehouse Crockery, the tables looked the epitome of Autumn style.
