This boutique festival is in its third year now and offers locals the opportunity to eat, drink and dance from 12noon until 9pm. This year the bar has been set high with more street food trucks and boutique pop up bars than ever before. We have a rare Badminton Rice horsebox that has been converted, painted red and called Poppy and now serves 100% grass fed Angus burgers produced in Kent. Dennis, meanwhile, is a single decker London red bus offering a selection of the finest English Grub or pay Freddie a visit, he is a white London cab serving delicious Ice Cream. Have you ever tried a Bubble Waffle? This quirky sweet snack from Hong Kong will also be one of the treats on offer. You will be able to indulge in Caribbean food with a twist, plenty of Vegan and gluten free treats, curries from Sudan, Ethiopia and East Africa, wood fired pizza, paella or Cheesy delights oozing from The Melt Truck. The infamous Gin Garden will be back, alongside the Giant Cider Barrel and a little converted 3 wheeled Piaggio Ape from Italy which will be serving cold prosecco and peroni on tap. Then there’s the Beats! DJs Dave Valentine and David Brooksbank will be playing the best in Old Skool, Dance and Ibiza classics whilst throwing in some reggae, soul and funk for good measure. There is also a live performance from the street drummer’s group I-DRUM and percussion from Hilary Cornell. A great day out for all the family. Tickets are limited and now available online priced £5 for adult, £2.50 for kids and under 3 year olds free. We really do recommend buying in advance as cannot guarantee entry on the day.
