Family fun at the Big Feastival

The festival season may be drawing to a close, but there's still time to pack in some family-friendly fun over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Big Feastival, just a couple of hours' drive from Kent in the beautiful Cotswolds, is boasting the biggest and best line-up in its seven year history.

And alongside the music, festival-goers can enjoy offerings from Michelin star chefs, award-winning street food and a packed programme of family entertainment.

Also on the bill are Clean Bandit, X-Factor winner James Arthur, former Spice Girl Melanie C, the Sugarhill Gang and Professor Green.

Children will be entertained by a stellar line-up including CBeebies superstar Justin Fletcher, his fellow BBC favourite Andy Day with his band the Oddsocks and veterans Dick and Dom.

On the food front, The Big Feastival will host two of the biggest powerhouses in the industry.

Marco Pierre White, dubbed the godfather of modern cooking and the youngest chef to achieve three Michelin stars, will be sharing his culinary wisdom that launched the careers of notable chefs including Gordon Ramsay.

Joining him on the line up is one of Britain’s most respected chefs, Raymond Blanc OBE, a culinary icon who has shared his expertise to nurture some of the country’s best chefs. Some 34 of his protégés have gone on to win Michelin stars themselves.

Blur bass player Alex James, on whose farm the festival takes place, said: "I am thrilled to once again host The Big Feastival on the farm and this year is set to be the biggest yet. I can’t wait to add to all of the fantastic memories we’ve helped make over the last six years.

"We’ve got a crackin’ line up across music and food coming to deliver an incredible experience for the whole family. Last year saw the largest Big Feastival crowd ever and we’re excited to top that again this summer."

For those who are keen to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, the NEFF Cookaholics Cookery School offers a hands-on experience where visitors learn how to get creative in the kitchen and the NEFF Little Kitchen provides interactive cookery classes to encourage budding young chefs.

Festival-goers who have worked up an appetite will enjoy the very best in British Street Food and have the chance to dine in the brand new Collaboration Kitchen, featuring limited edition collaboration menus from some of the most exciting names in the street food scene throughout the weekend

The festival takes place at Kingham in the Cotswolds, with day and weekend tickets available.
