More culinary stars join Big Feastival line-up

The Big Feastival is excited to announce even more unmissable foodie events and culinary stars joining the incredible line-up of music, food and family entertainment.

The festival's 10th anniversary will take place from 27 - 29 August at Alex James's Cotswolds farm at Kingham.

Guests at the Bank Holiday Weekend extravaganza will be in for a treat with new additions to the line-up including Great British Bake-Off winner Candice Brown and CHIC drummer, baker and soul food extraordinaire, Ralph Rolle who will be celebrating the southern roots and Bronx heritage of his New York based Soul Snacks Café.

The festival has also shared plans for a Cornish culinary feast in the heart of the Cotswolds, Feast On The Farm. The unforgettable rustic dining experience is a totally new concept for the festival and will operate over the three days of the festival offering brunch, lunch and dinner sittings.

As if that isn't enough, The Big Feastival has also announced a very special 10th Anniversary Supper Club in aid of Magic Breakfast, a charity that provides children with a healthy breakfast. Exclusive to Friday 27th August, a stellar line-up of chefs will each bring their unique skills to the table and create their own special course. Details on how to join this delicious feast for a great cause, to be announced soon.

GBBO finalist and GQ food columnist Ruby Bhogal will be hosting this year's Table Sessions, a unique and intimate forum where Big Feastival's guests are given the chance to get up close and personal with some of their favourite chefs and industry insiders for Q&A talks and tastings.

M&S Food is delighted to be headline sponsor of The Big Feastival 2021, with several dedicated activities and areas for the entire family to participate in across the weekend.

The Big Feastival, which has become renowned for delivering music of the highest calibre, world class chefs, award-winning street food and an unrivalled programme of family entertainment, is pulling out all the stops for 2021. Candice Brown and Ralph Rolle will be joining the incredible line-up of culinary stars already announced, including Nathan Outlaw, Mark Hix, Ching He Huang MBE, Theo Randall, Ping Coombes, Giz & Greens, Matt Tebbutt and many more.

The festival will be kicking off its anniversary celebrations with a belter of a start on Friday night thanks to multi-platinum selling DJ Sigala, Saturday night's treat with the king of funk Nile Rodgers & CHIC, and Sunday night's BRIT Award winner Rag'n'Bone Man, fresh from the release of No.1 album "Life By Misadventure".

Other music highlights include Zara Larsson, Tom Walker, Ella Eyre, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Tom Grennan and All Saints.
