A luxury hotel will turn into a gourmet food and music festival this August.
The Pig at Bridge, near Canterbury, will host this year’s Smoked and Uncut, a one-day festival headlined by Supergrass.
The '90s rock group, whose hits include Alright, Moving and Pumping on Your Stereo, are fronted by singer Gaz Coombes and recently performed at Glastonbury back in June.
The band will now be heading to The Pig, which used to be the Bridge Country Club before undergoing its £8 million transformation into an award-winning hotel.
The historic mansion was the most popular rock and roll and disco venue in the county between the 60s and 90s and hopes to continue its legacy with events such as Smoked and Uncut.
Joining Supergrass on the festival line-up will be ska group The Selecter and Cardiff-based rock band Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard, among others.
There will be a huge array of food stands available at the festival with dishes such as aged burgers, dirty fries, stonebaked pizzas, plant-based street food, mac and cheese, pastries, cakes, ice cream and more.
Chase Distillery gin and tonics, Fever Tree cocktails, alcohol free spritz from Everleaf, a Shepherd Neame beer bar and a Hambledon's double-decker bus will be among the drink offerings.
For those who want even more tasty treats, separate tickets for the feasting tents are also available in addition to your festival ticket.
The tents will be serving up gourmet delights from Angela Hartnett, the Canterbury-born Gordon Ramsay protégée and Saturday Kitchen presenter, as well as James Golding, Nieves Barragán, Lisa Goodwin-Allen and The Pig chef apprentices.
Families can also enjoy the day with the dedicated kids’ zone, which includes activities such as colourful crafting and outdoor activities.
If you’re after some peace and quiet you can head to the Field Spa for a massage, or get the ultimate festival look at the glitter and braid bars.
There will also be an artisan pop-up market selling handmade pieces including jewellery, fashion, homeware and festival accessories, hosted by Shopcreative.
If you’re planning to do any, or all, of the festival activities, it’s worth noting that the event is cashless and visitors will be given a wristband for payments on arrival. It is advised that anyone attending should create an online payment account ahead of arrival.
Smoked and Uncut takes place on Saturday, August 13 at The Pig in Bridge, near Canterbury. Tickets to the festival cost £57.50 and feasting tent tickets must be booked separately.
