Did you know that there is an annual rhubarb festival in Wakefield? ( January). Wakefield is the so called capital of the Rhubarb triangle (which consists of Wakefield- Rothwell - Morley) . It is intended as a celebration of forced rhubarb traditions, history and culinary delights. In its first year it lasted for 5 days, but has now been extended to 8 days. Events include gourmet meals cookery demonstrations and farm tours. We have a rhubarb corner in our garden-can't get rid of it!
