Jamie Oliver presents The Big Feastival with Alex James

Jamie Oliver presents The Big Feastival with Alex James and we are delighted to officially announce that the festival will take place on September 1st and 2nd in Kingham, Oxfordshire. Bringing an extravaganza of delicious food, sound-tracked by perfect summer sounds, this weekend of top entertainment will host star appearances from the food, music and children’s entertainment world plus camping (and ‘glamping’) facilities for festival-goers wanting to get back to nature, chill out and top off their big day out with a night under canvas.

The first round of acts are unveiled and headlining the Main Stage on Saturday 1st September is the gorgeously talented Paloma Faith bringing some high-voltage glamour and vocals to The Big Feastival field. Joining her is former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes and the endlessly entertaining Cuban Brothers will also perform on the first day, while Razorlight is the first act to be announced to the Main Stage on Sunday with many more still to be announced over the next few weeks.

Gourmet food offerings this year include the British chef Mark Hix, pop-up restaurants a-plenty, inside tips, tricks of the trade, cook-offs and demos from top chefs in The Big Kitchen, masterclasses from green-fingered growers in The Kitchen Garden and the cream of the crop of passionate independent suppliers in the Farmers’ Market. And of course the cooking powerhouse Jamie Oliver will be in attendance showing wannabe culinary wizards how it’s done.

And for the little ones, the Little Dudes Den will house the best in children’s entertainment including a ‘back by popular demand’ performance farm yard favourite Peppa Pig. Magic shows, fantastical storytelling, a Vintage Fun Fair, face painting, puppet-making and potting parties will ensure even the most energetic of little ones will be sleepy-eyed by the time they settle into their sleeping bags under the stars.

All that plus we’ve released a limited amount of Early Bird tickets which are now on sale so get them quick while they are still available!
