Wales for Really Wild Free Food...Or simply a spot of Bog Snorkelling

Well with the current economic blah-de-blah what better way to spend the weekend than learning how to gather and prepare free food?

Making supper at the Really Wild Food and Countryside Festival sounds a lot more exciting than a dash to Tesco. The event in St Davids, Pembrokeshire, on 5 and 6 September, celebrates food in the wild with cookery and craft demonstrations and talks from expert foragers on how to gatherwild "free food" to spice up your meals.

Exhibitors include local producers of organic cheese, ice cream, Welsh wine and honey, as well as workshops on basket making, spinning, weaving, leatherwork and falconry.

Coastal Cottages (01437 772760, ) has a wide selection of accommodation in Pembrokeshire.

But if all that sounds a bit too hippy trippy and suggests a bit too much of the tree huggery for you, then there remains only one thing left for you to do in Wales:

The World Bog Snorkelling championships, Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales, : 200 competitors, some in fancy dress, battle it out to be the fastest across a muddy trench.

The event is usually held on the August Bank Holiday Monday so it gives you the weekend to grease up and slip into your bog-snorkelling suit; you know you’ve only been looking for an excuse to wear it out in public.
