Tom Hirons
On the eve of Saturday 21st December, as the tide turns from the darkness back towards the light, the Embercombe Kitchen would dearly love you to come gather in beautiful company around our Solstice table. To come feast on the earthly fruits of this year’s harvest and rest in a telling of a Winter’s tale….

We will be shall serving canapes, mulled cider and a delicious plant-based organic and locally-sourced three-course supper. And, with belly full, the wonderful opportunity to delight in the magical The Castle of Melvales, told by Tom Hirons.

Tickets: £30 each. There will also be opportunity to make an optional donation on the night to St Petrocks. All proceeds to this Exeter-based charity for homeless & vulnerably housed will be gratefully received.
