Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's August Bank Holiday food and fun times is back for another year. Head down to River Cottage's HQ on the Devon/Dorest border for festival gigs, food demos, food writers, chefs, local producers, street food heroes, the legendary on site cocktail bar and evening feasts over fire lead by guests chefs including Leyli Joon & Co.

And we'll be joining the line up this year. Our editor, Georgina, will be hosting an ethical fashion panel with British fashion designer Alice Temperley and CEO of Traid Maria Chenoweth and others while Hugh will be joined by TV presenter Anita Rani, Hugh’s co-presenter in their new BBC1 series War On Plastic.

Plus River Cottage favourites, Rachel de Thample and Naomi Devlin will be leading a full schedule of masterclasses around cocktail making, fermentation, foraging and gut health.

Camp, glamp, pop by for the day, this is one of the most relaxed festivals in the UK with a focus on organic, seasonal food, delicious drinks and a touch of the good life.
