The Big Festival 2016: Less Than Two weeks to go!

The Big Festival 2016: Less Than Two weeks to go!

The countdown begins, we have a little less than  2 weeks to go until we transform Alex James’ Farm into the food, music and family festival of the summer as The Big Feastival opens its gates for a 5th birthday party to remember!

We now only have limited day tickets remaining, so this really is your last chance to join in the fun this August bank holiday. What are you waiting for?

Big Love,

The BF team x

Saturday will host the likes of Instagram sensationSymmetryBreakfast, blogger Tess Ward, and festivalfavourite Gennaro Contaldo, as well as the Billingsgate Seafood School who’ll be showing visitors how to fillet fish to perfection.

There’ll be a range of sessions on Sunday with chefs Dan Doherty, José Pizarro and Thomasina Miers all making appearances plus The Marshmallowist will be sharing her trade secrets in a marshmallow masterclass!

Bangwok really do make a mean Pad Thai, so believe us when we say that they’ve got your noodle fix covered!

Head over to Street Food Lane where they will be wokking up a storm all weekend.
