C4R-Fest is the brainchild of Chris Evans and is an event that combines classic cars, live music and food whilst also raising money for BBC Children in Need.
The Cheshire event returns this year to Bolesworth Castle, Tattenhall, Cheshire, happening from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th July 2019, and there's a sister event in the south at Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire in late August.
This year CarFest's refreshed new content includes two paddocks filled to the brim with a great range of cars plus track races and celebrity go-karting… be prepared for motorsport overload! - plus four exciting new 'worlds' to discover and enjoy… including:
- Kids Kingdom: Where kids rule! Built for the kids (of all ages) and run by the kids.
- Eden: A place to do more good. Look after yourself, look after others, and look after our wonderful planet.
- Vintage Carfest: We take you and CarFest back in time with all the theatre of the circus and a love of nostalgia.
- Car-Feast: The Ultimate Family Food Festival, with celebrity chefs doing what they do best, but with a surprise twist!
Acts include The Jacksons, Beverley Knight, All Saints, Ziggy Marley, Clean Bandit, Texas, and more.
