It was a fun experience in which we learnt a lot and got to take one home too!

Great for all ages to attend and learn about the Brocklebys company, the environment they work with and you get to make your own pork pie too. Only suggestion would be to have some chairs for the video section as standing in a cool room makes your back ache and quiet a few attendees were having aching backs at the end.

Overall it was an okay evening but not as good as expected. When you are looking for it - you need to follow signs to the garden centre. It's not clearly signed at all and down a very dark lane! The tour is minimal - they didn't explain what the equipment or processes which was a shame. The 'factory' is one room so not much to tour round so don't expect that. Good demonstration of how to make hot water crust pastry. Pie making itself was good but very basic. We had fun! There were 40 of us split into 2 groups - whilst 20 of us made pies the other 20 were given a presentation. Interesting but went on for far too long. Could easily have been done in half the time. Standing for that so not particularly comfortable! At the end of the night we were able to get pies as part of an offer. Unfortunately no pork pies available which was disappointing. Only tasting was a little bit of the Wild Deer pie - again disappointing.

Pie making itself was great. We watched a video whilst first group made their pies about provenance of where ingredients come from. For this we had to stand up in a stockroom which was not very good! The could have given us samples of pies, especially pork pie which we were making. Felt they needed to become a bit more slick and professional with evening. It was only £10 each so good value for money and I will have a go at making my own pie at home.

Bought as a present for my Dad. He and my Mum had great fun making pies with a group of people. They even bought more pies before leaving.
