Rock Oyster Festival on Camel Estuary in Cornwall announces 2014 date
The festival is now in its fifth year and returns to the idyllic grounds of Dinham House, near Wadebridge, as a midsummer celebration for all the family with music, entertainment and, of course, oysters.
And for the first time this year, the festival will include a farmers’ market.
Charlie Anderson, the festival organiser, said: “The party will be a great way to start the summer off with a bang!
“This year, we’ve condensed the festivities into one day and night with the fun starting at lunchtime and continuing until the early hours.
“We’ll be announcing a music line-up at the end of March that will guarantee to keep festival goers smiling all day and dancing all night.
He added: “We have put together a mouth-watering selection of food; Porthilly oysters, succulent mussels cooked by chefs of the St Moritz Hotel, huge paellas, spicy Cornish curries and delicious wood-fire cooked pizzas. There is even a special kid’s food wagon.
“For the first time we will host a farmers’ market. There is a £20 stall charge and we are keen to hear from even the smallest local food businesses so that we can show off the huge variety of top quality food that Cornwall can proudly boast.”
The Cornish Beer Tent will be serving a great range of local ales and Wadebridge Wines will be there with a wide selection of wine.
Charlie said: “Like the pearl hidden within the oyster shell, Rock Oyster Festival is one of Cornwall’s gems. Whether it is a ‘Glasto for foodies’, a music festival with heart or simply a giant playground for the kids there is something for the whole family. This festival has lots to shout about! Come and find out for yourself.”
Tickets for the whole day and night are available from the website with no booking fees until 31 March at a cost of £20 per adult and £5 for children. Camping is also available.
