First celebrity selfie – tick; first silent disco – tick; first big concert by someone famous (for 7 and 9-year-olds, that is) – tick; first time at the front of the stage among a heaving crowd – tick. The Big Feastival proved to be a big hit with our boys.
The sixth Big Feastival, on Alex James’ Farm near Kingham, Oxfordshire, fell on a gloriously warm and sunny August Bank Holiday weekend and the crowds turned out to bask in it and revel in the fun and frolics.
While we were half expecting to bump into David Cameron or Jeremy Clarkson as part of the Chipping Norton set at Alex James’ annual shindig in the Cotswolds, we were pleasantly surprised to discover a family festival that spanned the generations with enough varied offerings to satisfy kids, parents and even the ‘silver shakers’ of the family.
With The Big Feastival, you’re guaranteed every possible set-up for families, with kids of all ages. All the kid’s brands are there, giving away goody bags, offering activities, and selling all kinds of bits and pieces that we’re so familiar with if you have children. The vibe is relaxed, trendy and slightly upmarket. Read more…

We love food. And we love music. And we love spending the weekend together as a family in a field. So we thought The Big Feastival would be the perfect combo. And indeed if you fancy a weekend of watching celebrity chefs, in a field, with a side serving of live music and a huge dollop of fete then this is the perfect festival for you.
