About Trout 'n About!
Trout ‘n About is a thriving local food festival which takes place in the market town of Stockbridge on the first Sunday of August every year. With over 100 stalls showcasing the very best of local food, produce and crafts, it is a family friendly event attracting thousands of visitors from all around. The beautiful, historic high street of Stockbridge becomes abuzz with activity, with live music filling the air, Juggling Jake entertaining the children with his circus skills and the countryside coming to the high street in the form of farm animals, vintage agricultural equipment, craft demonstrations, face painting and the many stalls promoting and selling local fare.
Trout ‘n About commenced in 2008. Initiated by Stockbridge Area Partnership (SAP) in response to demand for a local food event, it had initial funding support from SEEDA (the South East England Development Agency).
Trout ‘n About has four main objectives:
- to raise the profile of Stockbridge and celebrate it’s market history
- to raise money to support the local community
- to promote regional quality food, produce, local crafts and provide a platform for local businesses
- to provide an enjoyable event for the wider community and visitors
