  • Marlborough Food Assembly

    The Marlborough Food Assembly puts local consumers in touch with local food. As a food assembly member, you can shop local produce online and go to the same venue every week to meet the producers and pick up your pre-ordered local produce. Producers from within 25 miles will be offering their produce online. Find local milk, eggs, cheese, organic vegetables, fish, ciders, cakes, honey, preserves and healthy home cooked meals. Shop at your convenience from home and then head to the Rugby Club, Marlborough every Thursday from 4.00pm to 6.00pm to pick it up. ‘Food Assemblies started in France and there are no more than 700 assemblies across Europe. If you’re interested in the quality of food and its provenance then the Food Assembly is for you. Community is at the heart of The Food Assembly connecting neighbours to farmers and neighbours to each other. We’re hoping the assemblies will be an event you look forward to’. Reducing waste is key as farmers and food makers know exactly how much to deliver in advance and food miles are decreased. You’re also supporting your local economy. In a world that needs us to act in a more sustainable way this is one of the first steps towards that. Sign-up at The Food Assembly to start shopping. ...»

  • Marlborough Literature Festival

    Founded in 2010 by volunteers keen to celebrate fine writing, Marlborough Literature festival is held annually in the last week of September and has evolved into a much admired and popular event. ‘Famous authors and poets have roots in Marlborough so it made sense to establish a festival here. William Golding’s childhood home was on the Green and Siegfried Sassoon and John Betjeman attended Marlborough College. Local author Mavis Cheek was one of the main driving forces behind it.’ The focus is on good writing and supporting the unknown - they rarely feature politicians or celebrities. A more well-known author, The Golding speaker, opens the festival and past speakers have included Louis de Bernieres and Sally Vickers. There are street events, a translation duel and poetry in the pub and gleeful children take part in school events and listen to some of their favourite authors. ‘The best part of the festival is being surprised - you never know what to expect but authors are normal people like us, experiencing the ups and downs of life. I’ve been to talks where I’ve laughed and cried and really connected with the author’s story. The perception can be that literary festivals are highbrow but, that’s not the case at all, they’re really accessible and fun.’ The festival wouldn’t be possible without it’s fabulous sponsors, especially their headline sponsor Brewin Dolphin, and tickets go on sale in July. Don’t miss it! ...»
