Onsite parking will be free, and entry will cost £1 for adults; meanwhile, children will be welcomed for free.

Brockenhurst College Events Executive, Becky Denby, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming people to Eats ‘n’ Treats again this year following last year’s hiatus.

“Visitors will be able to try, buy, eat, drink, learn about local produce and meet local artisan entrepreneurs.”

Now in its fourth year, Eats ‘n’ Treats is a Brockenhurst College event run in association with local commerce organisations Go New Forest and New Forest Marque.

More than 40 local firms have already booked to show and sell their wares, as well as chat about what they do.

Stalls will be set up in the College’s Main Hall, while mobile catering units serving a variety of hot food will set up shop on the nearby Staff Lawn.

Go New Forest Chief Executive Anthony Climpson said: “Eats ‘n’ Treats is one of the most popular community events in our Taste the New Forest calendar, providing excellent opportunities to pick up unique high-quality Christmas gifts and festive supplies made by local producers.

“There is still time for sellers and exhibitors to book pitches, and Go New Forest and New Forest Marque members will qualify for a discount.”

Meanwhile, Chairman of the New Forest Marque Dan Parsons said: “This event is a unique opportunity to see and sample a wide selection of great New Forest Marque and local produce all in one place.”
