For a quite a number of years now, I’ve spent a bit of time in the Cotswolds – each summer – well Witney, which nestles on the edge of the Cotswolds near to Oxford.
Our summer music festivals up and down the country draw in everyone these days – not just the die-hard, mud-surfing teens and twenty-somethings. They now cater for the the whole family and all ages which is great.
One festival (or feastival!) flying that flag proudly is Jamie Oliver and Alex James’ Big Feastival bringing together everbody’s great loves – music and food!
Jamie Oliver and Alex James present The Big Feastival.
A unique weekend celebration of music, food and fun for all the family, set on Alex’s idyllic Cotswolds farm.
Here you can enjoy music from top acts, tuck into top chef demos in the Big Kitchen and have your fill from The Menu, featuring the cream of the UK’s street food crop. Browse local producer stands, join a cookery class or get your foodie fix joining top chefs for intimate Q&A sessions. Keep little and big kids happy in the fun-filled Little Dudes Den, join an arts & crafts workshop, enjoy the Big Top games or take a spin round the vintage funfair.
So from 28th – 30th August we can enjoy seeing some great names such as:
Groove Armada (DJ)
Badly Drawn Boy
and of course this years great find – Rae Morris
Plus many others… including top chefs with some great demonstrations and a whole lot more!
…the only thing is, I’ll be sad not to be able to go this year as I’ll be away in Scotland – never mind, there’s always next year!
