Come scoff the beaten track to the Chew Down. Experience the best picnic site in the world perched on the brow of the hill looking down to the lake below. Venture in to our big top and expect to find a host of fun activities, demos and talks from top chefs and of course our feasts. There’s always plenty to chew over!

The Chew Down tent is host to a wide variety of hands-on workshops and demos over the weekend, and is hosted by theatre group 6 Foot Stories, so lots of silliness can be expected as well – Valley Fest encourages everyone to play with their food! Farmdrop will be offering pasta making and cup cake decorating, Coombe Farm have a butchery demo and a burger making session for kids, TV chefs Pat Hart and Sherrie Eugene-Hart will be joining us to give a taste of their Carib-Asian cookery, and Bristol’s favourite foodie, Elly Pear will also be giving a glimpse of her famous culinary talents.

All the food at Valley Fest is organic, and there will be a wide range of organic food stalls catering to all tastes. The Community Farm will also be there offering a selection of fun and informative workshops and talks, giving insight into the farm and organic farming, with sessions in foraging, veg picking and fermenting among others, there’s lots for adults and kids alike.
