The most family-friendly festival of 2016

The most family-friendly festival of 2016

Music and food festivals are a mainstay of the British summer, and The Big Feastival 2016 combines the two in a family-friendly package. Take your grandchildren for a visit to the Cotswolds event this August and create memories you'll never forget.

Now in its fifth year, The Big Feastival (organised by Jamie Oliver and Alex James) has just announced a jam-packed line-up of musical big-hitters including Ella Henderson and the Kaiser Chiefs, coupled with live cookery demonstrations from famous chefs including Jamie himself and Raymond Blanc.

“The Big Feastival is one of my favourite weekends of the year," says Jamie Oliver. "No other festival combines amazing music and incredible food in such a unique way and this year’s stellar line-up makes it unmissable!”

Stay for the day or the whole weekend (August 26-28), by camping, luxury 'glamping', or booking a nearby hotel.

Little ones will love seeing Dick and Dom, Cbeebies star Justin Fletcher and The X Factor's Reggie N Bollie, as well as spending time in the Little Dudes' Den. Its ethos is one of fabulous food, live music and a wholesome family atmosphere - so even if you'd normally shy away from festivals, it's worth dipping your toe in the water. You might just be converted!

Full information on the music, food and family programmes and ticket purchasing.  The next announcement of acts will take place on March 29 from which point Day Tickets will also be available to purchase.
