Charity run, shopping and gastronomic delights: Things to do this week


Knowsley HallPH

There’s no habitat more fabulously grand than Knowsley Hall for a feast


Dick deserves a slap-up feast and there’s no setting more fabulously outstanding than Knowsley Hall, home of the Earl and Countess of Derby. The distinguished home in Prescot, Merseyside, has just opened its doors for a series of Choice Evenings to sample gastronomic delights created by executive chef Paul Macnish.

His enterprising five-course tasting menu is paired with the highest quality wines and gets £95. I loved the Chicken of the Sea – whiting, artichoke consommé, red quinoa, chicken floss and Baeri caviar. Dinner boarders can also stay at the hall. The next Exquisite Evening is on May 19.
