A weekend of live music, delicious local food and family bonding is promised at a popular festival.
Valley Fest returns to Somerset next weekend and offers a three-day event where family and friendship takes centre stage as well as celebrating the great outdoors – set to a stunning backdrop of Chew Valley Lake.
It was started in 2014 by Luke Hasell to honour the memory of his parents, who both passed away while in their early 50s.
Luke decided to put on an event which would encompass their zest for life and their passion for good food. He wanted it to be a true celebration which can be shared with loved ones.
It all takes place on a working organic farm, which is why sustainability, the provenance of food and caring for the land are key aspects of the festival.
This year will feature a great line-up of musical acts, including St Paul And The Broken Bones, Rae Morris and My Baby.
Children and adults can do a wide variety of things across the weekend from meeting the farm animals, to picking vegetables, learning skills and taking part in cookery workshops.
It also offers a ‘pocket of joy’ away from the outside world, according to organisers, which involves ‘a lot of nonsense and silliness’.
Valley Fest will take place at Chew Valley Lake, off the A368 near Bishop Sutton, from August 3-5. The gates will open to the public from noon on August 3. The festival field for campers will open at 2pm and close at noon on August 6.
The Times has teamed up with the organisers to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to the event on August 5.
All entries must be in by 10am on August 1, any received after this will not by accepted.
