CarFest (or 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 festival will take place from Friday 25th until Sunday 27th August 2022 at Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire. Unfortunately, the sister event in the north at Bolesworth Castle in Cheshire, is NOT taking place this year.

CarFest's refreshed 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 '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!

The festival will be fully covid-compliant and social distanced.


Acts include The Feeling, Village People, BoyzLife, Rick Parfitt Jnr, Texas, The Bootleg Beatles and The Dolly Parton Experience – with more names to be announced in the coming months.

For the music details as available please see the line-up page.

The Kitchen Stage will feature a wide variety of cooking demonstrations with celebrity chefs.
