The Good Life Experience – Fringe Events

By: Sarah Date: 08/11/14 Category: Events

It may be the new kid on the block, but like all the best festivals, The Good Life Experience has a fantastic fringe programme going on around the edges, and this message is to tell you about some of that activity.

To recap: The Good Life Experience is our one-day mini fest of music, food and the great outdoors, taking place here at Hawarden Estate Farm Shop on September 20. Visit to see the details and book tickets, or call 01244 784122 during office hours.

Tickets for Friday night (September 19) are now sold out, but there's lots to entertain on the Sunday (September 21) and most of it is free to Saturday ticket holders.

Bruce Fogle at The Glynne Arms, 11.30am - bring your dogs please

Father of TV personality Ben, Bruce Fogle is possibly the UK's greatest canine vet, author of numerous books on cats and dogs, broadcaster and co-founder of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. Bring your dogs along to The Glynne for some serious (and fun) words of wisdom from Bruce. It's free, but do mention it to Vicky in the Farm Shop (or email if you're planning to come.

Kate Swan at The Glynne Arms, 12.30pm

Kate Swan, producer of the fascinating docu-film Kiss the Water, gives a short talk and film show. This is a film about fishing fly creator (and Prince Charles's fly tier) Megan Boyd: a beautiful, gentle piece of work that was a major labour of love for Kate, which will stay with you for a long time afterwards.

Paprika's classical moments, during the morning, at The Glynne

Music by Bach (Ciaccona), Ysaye (Sonata 3) and Ernst (Last Rose of Summer), joyously interpreted by earthy group Paprika.

Launch of The Magnificent Hound at The Glynne Arms, 1.30pm

Did we mention a certain passion for dogs? Here is the launch of the Gladstone family's great new venture: everything your dog ever wanted but was too shy to ask for. Come along to the party and demonstration - free, especially to dogs.

Guided walk in the park, 2pm

Bring your dog and join Caroline for a guided walk around Hawarden Park.

All these events are free, so come along early to The Glynne to bag a nice seat - and then stay on for lunch. It's business as usual!
