Masterclasses planned for Butchers’ Week

To mark National Butchers’ Week and raise money for charity Scope, Alnwick butcher Daniel Turnbull will be giving butchery masterclasses.

Daniel will demonstrate how to prepare popular beef, lamb, pork and chicken cuts, at ‘An Evening with Butcher Dan’ at Northumberland Hall, on Thursday 26 March.

The event is being held to coincide with Butchers’ Week. Daniel says: “Butchers across the nation will be holding events to showcase the knowledge they have to offer, as well as passing on information about getting value for money. This gave me both the inspiration and impetus to stage a butchery masterclass and I’m just hoping that I can prove myself a cut above the rest!”

Tickets are available for £5 from
