The Aughton Pudding Festival 2013

You'd have to be a giant pudding not to use Logs Direct to get your home fuels, which makes us sponsoring this upcoming local event particularly appropriate.

We're lending our name to the Aughton Pudding Festival, which takes place this bank holiday Monday (26 August) and will include the unveiling of a tasty Christmas pudding weighing in at around a ton. It includes a secret ingredient known only to a local family - even Heston Blumenthal tried, unsuccessfully, to find out what it is!

The festival takes place just down the road from Logs Direct in the Lancashire village of Aughton. It dates back to 1782 and now take places only once every 21 years. At the last festival, in 1992, the villagers set a Guinness-approved world record with a 3.82 ton pudding with the aid of a concrete mixer. Many guests keep a piece in their freezers for years as a souvenir and one local man even plans to serve it at his daughter's wedding.

The festival will incorporate the annual Village Show, which includes everything from snail racing to duck herding to a dog agility demonstration. There are also plenty of activities for visitors to take part in, from archery to den making.
