Bretforton Silver Band Asparagus Auction
The Vale of Evesham has strong historical connections with the production of Asparagus and for years the biggest and best crop of the green spear has been auctioned off in aid of the Bretforton Silver band at the world renowned National Trust pub, the Fleece Inn. The Asparagus festival has been a yearly occurance at the Fleece for over 6 years and we have built up quite a following. Visit our Asparahistory page to read more on Asparagus Festivals past.
