Under 10s can also get in on the action with Young Driver’s specially created electric Firefly. These 2-seater cars have independent suspension and rack and pinion steering – just like the real thing! Suitable for five to 10 year olds, they can get their first experience behind the wheel and have some fun! They’ll even get their very own driving licence to take away. Firefly experiences start from £21.99.

All experiences can be purchased as booked lessons or gift vouchers with printed voucher packs available.

Connor McGinn Bio
Connor McGinn Studios creates handmade, custom, ceramic dinnerware for the table. Whether it be for a Michelin star restaurant or your dining room table, each piece is lovingly crafted out either high fire stoneware or porcelain and glazed with completely food safe non toxic glazed made in house. Having a background in the kitchens of fine dining farm-to-table restaurants, the importance of community and food have a huge impact on my work and are at times the driving force behind it. Just as the relationships within a restaurant are vital to the Chef’s final dish, I believe that a collaboration with the Chef, the cooks, the dining staff, and the diners themselves is an integral part of my process and has a great influence on my work.

Wood Fire Food
The concept behind Wood Fire Food is simple, to be able to tell a story through the process of doing what you love. What started off as an escape from the everyday grind turned into another way to manipulate raw material into something beautiful. Westchester born and raised, my entire childhood was based off the simple concept of work hard for what you want and try to create and make whatever you can. I love being able to take material and create something beautiful with it. Connecting a story to a product is the best feeling, being able to take salvaged wood form someone’s past and transform it into a product for someone’s future is all the inspiration I need at times. I have found the perfect balance of cooking and creating with this business between cooking over open fires, and making one of kind products through the same materials I cook over, the possibilities are endless

C-Los Carpentry
C-los Carpentry, a woodworking team led by Carlos Chimborazo and aided by his partner, Elena Krougliak, creates beautiful and functional pieces for restaurants or for the home. Each piece is lovingly and carefully made, highlighting the natural patterns found in the wood grain. Carlos draws on his vast experience working in a carpentry shop starting from the young age of twelve, and continuing working on his craft even while working in a fine dining farm-to-table restaurant. Both having a long background working in hospitality and restaurants, Carlos and Elena wanted to continue being able to be involved with food, dining, and that incomparable experience of building relationships and sharing conversation over a meal. So it seemed only natural that they would use locally sourced wood to create one-of-a-kind handmade pieces for the dinner table. Whether focusing on creating items for the home, or fulfilling larger orders for a restaurant, they are always challenging themselves to produce quality-made pieces that last. In addition to creating bowls, platters, and cutting boards, they also design and create larger-scale pieces ranging from built-ins to custom furniture.
