Cornwall LivingIssue #111

A show like no other

Heading to the Cornish shores this summer? Live nearby and looking for an amazing day out? Well, this is the summer event for you!

Travelling Feast, the brand-new food, drink and music festival touring the Cornish coast for the first time this August, will be hosting some of Britain’s best-loved chefs and music artists as part of its journey across four stunning Cornish locations.

Festival founder and host, Cornwall-based chef and restaurateur Paul Ainsworth will be leading the charge from 6th to 20th August, with each of the four destinations offering its own unique mix of music and food. Paul has invited a selection of Michelin-starred and award-winning chefs and their food trucks to join him, including Tom Kerridge’s Humble Pie Truck and James Martin’s Ice Cream Truck, who will be serving delicious treats alongside some stars of the Cornish foodie scene such as Porthilly Oysters and The Shellfish Pig, whilst the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Sister Sledge and Faithless will keep everyone entertained.

You can join this epic journey with them by either enjoying the festival from under the stars with your own tent or campervan, living it up in one of the exclusive glamping tents, or just coming down for an evening of amazing food, chefs and brilliant music acts at a stunning location.

If you’d like to go all out, then the Adventure Ticket is for you. Taking place over four days at Roscarrock Farm, ticket holders will have passes for the two festival nights at the Royal Cornwall Showground, as well as having access to exclusive campsite sets from Judge Jules and The Cuban Brothers, a brunch cruise around Padstow with a Cornish menu from chef Niall Keating and the Paradise Carriage, fireside chats with celebrity chefs, yoga, and outdoor movies.

Paul Ainsworth, Chef Proprietor of The Ainsworth Collection, says: “I’ve always wanted to go to a festival where the food takes centre stage, with great music and entertainment, topped off with a series of stunning locations in one of the most beautiful places in the world – my home, Cornwall. To be able to launch Travelling Feast is so exciting, and we’re all on a mission to create long-lasting, happy memories, as well as showcasing some of the region’s amazing producers and the country’s top chefs. After the challenging year we’ve had, I think we all need some joy in our lives and hope Travelling Feast will do just that.”
