‘I think it’s one of our best line-ups ever’ says festival founder Phil Phillimore, ‘the combination of Keane, The Specials and The Beach Boys is pretty huge for us – and we’re also delighted to have our new friends, and national treasures, The Hairy Bikers returning with their fabulous Festival Feast. Last year we sold  every seat in the restaurant – it was totally delicious and the feasters feedback was incredible. 

 Hairy Bikers Si King and Dave Myers have been cooking together for more than 20 years, travelling the world in the pursuit of great food. The stars of a string of hit television shows, and regulars on BBC One’s Saturday Kitchen, they have become the UK’s most popular cookery writing duo.
