TICKET PRICE Adult £1.50 at the door, children FREE

The East Anglia Potato Day is an annual event that has been established since 1996. It is one of the few events in the country dedicated to the humble potato, a mainstay of the British diet and very much part of our cultural heritage. Organised and run entirely by volunteers from Norfolk Organic Group, Suffolk Organic Gardeners and Ipswich Organic Gardeners Group. The event attracts hundreds of people from all over East Anglia, eager to explore trade and craft stands, sample local food and take part in activities like chip tasting and seed potato swaps. This is a popular event with people queuing from as early as 8.30am – some to get their seed potatoes for the rest of the year. In 2018 there were over 80+ potato varieties with approximately 25% of them produced organically. Seed potatoes are sold per tuber at 17p each

Maiden Newton Village Hall View map »

Maiden Newton Allotments Association is holding its sixth Annual Potato Day on Saturday 23rd February. In what has become a popular annual event, Maiden Newton Village Hall will open its doors between 10.30am and 2.00pm to welcome all keen gardeners, be they allotment veterans, experienced enthusiasts or complete novices who would like to talk to some experts, find helpful advice and share tips on all things gardening.

You can buy your spuds by the single tuber if you only have a small plot, although an amazing range of over 60 varieties of seed potatoes will be available. Far more than just potatoes will be on offer, though. In fact, this event could kick-start your gardening year with almost everything you need. 700 varieties of heritage and heirloom seeds, many varieties of onion sets and shallots, together with some unusual tubers, rhubarbs, artichokes and dahlias will all appeal to anyone wanting to get stuck in to their kitchen garden. Lots of herb plants will be available this year too and if fruit is more to your taste, there will be a range of raspberry varieties and soft fruit (including the new Pinkcurrant) as well as almond, mulberry, peach, apple, nectarine and quince trees.

Admission is free, plenty of refreshments will be on hand and local arts and craft stalls will be taking part too. And if you feel up to it, why not enter the potato-in-a-bag, sunflower, and pumpkin competitions? Take the seeds away and come back in August to have your results weighed and measured at our Village Produce Show.
