🌱 Alresford Watercress Festival 🌱
Location: West Street, Station Road, and Broad Street
Date: Sunday 15th May 2022
Do you know all the ways that you can enjoy watercress? How about some delicious chocolate, watercress & orange brownies? Or Southern Indian pumpkin, cauliflower & watercress curry? Celebrating this famous Hampshire delicacy, the Alresford Watercress Festival has been gathering local suppliers and traders for many years.
This year (after enjoying it as members of the public for many years) it becomes our first official stop on the Tour de Experience Hampshire 2022.
The Alresford Watercress Festival is a not-for-profit raising money for many local charities and organisations. Over the last 10 years they've put £100,000 back into the local community.
