Former BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave’s top events this month involve a vintage clothing sale, a park run, gin tasting class and a free food market at a manor…

Love is in the air and the New Year is now in full swing. Whether you love trying new things, keeping those fitness levels up or indulging in the best food and drink, I’ve found some brilliant events to fire up your February! Here are my top picks…

On Saturday the 9th Waddesdon Manor are hosting a free Artisan Food Market for local foodies to enjoy. This monthly event gives you the chance to sample the highest quality food and drink from local producers – even the dog can come along (if you keep them on the lead!)
