Update: Please note that the event this Sunday has been postponed due to severe weather warnings, please see message below from the Coeliac UK Plymouth Group
It is with regret that the Coeliac UK Plymouth Group committee have decided to postpone this event until the next market on Sunday September 14th. We have been following the weather forecast for the last few days and it seems the tail end of hurricane Bertha is set to hit us this weekend. There is heavy rain and gusts of up to 60mph predicted for Sunday and this obviously raises huge concerns over health and safety and the potential that the ferry will not be running. We apologise for the late notice, and we will be contacting anyone who has booked a place on the house tour directly before Sunday.

Please see the details below of the upcoming Coeliac UK Plymouth Group event that will be held in conjunction with the Mount Edgcumbe local produce market on Sunday August 10th. Please note that the market itself is not organised by the Coeliac UK Plymouth Group so will not be entirely gluten free, but all traders are aware of the coeliac event and will be ensuring they have gluten free options where possible.

Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park
The Coeliac UK Plymouth Group invite you to join us for a tour of Mount Edgcumbe House on Sunday August 10th. The standard ticket price is £7.20, but we have negotiated a special price of £3 for members and their guests. We ask you to meet us for registration at 11am for 11.30 entry. Tea and Coffee will be available upon arrival as will samples of gluten free cake and savoury items. The house takes about 1.5 hours to explore.
All members and guests must register in advance, stating name and email address, or phone number. This is then to be checked off on the day. Any members needing assistance between the Cremyll Ferry and the house to notify us upon initial registration so we can ensure golf buggies are available. Meeting point for the buggy is at the lower gate to the park. Please be patient as once the buggies are full we will be back until everyone has been picked up. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register by completing and returning this form; money will be collected on the day. If you have any problems finding us on the day please visit the Let Them Eat Cake stall at the produce market where someone will be able to direct you or call 07743 792368.
After your time looking around the house please reconvene back at the Earls Garden for more refreshments, and a wonder around the produce market. Those not wishing to take part in the house tour are welcome to meet us in the Earls Garden from 1pm to enjoy refreshments, where committee members will be available to give advice and answer any queries.
The market is a monthly event, showcasing the finest produce from within the Tamar Valley. Every trader at this market has been fully briefed on our event and all are putting a great deal of thought and effort into their offer for you.
You will be able to purchase goodies such as gluten free sausages, chilli jam, thai green curry, cider, apple juice, honey, fresh flowers, fresh Tamar Valley fruit and veg, jam, cake, pasties, pies, sausage rolls, bread (that doesn’t break down when you make a sandwich), everything you could need for a picnic, Sunday supper, or to fill the freezer.
Please be aware that the market is not being organised by the Coeliac UK Plymouth group, so do check with traders to ensure any purchases are gluten free. There will of course be produce available for our non-gluten free family so please be careful.
After this please take the time to enjoy the stables courtyard where you can find weaving and whittling workshops, an up cycled store, art, spa treatments, new children play area, frisbee golf and segway.
This is a day out for all of the family, so please do bring them along and if the weather stays like this we will have the most wonderful time.
