Food & drink
The festival is held at Sunnyfields Farm who have a cafe and host a farmer's market every weekend. The Farm are pioneers of the Food & More Project and it is this project which has enabled the festival to happen. The project is all about farms being more than just places that grow food, which means things like music can happen too.
The Village Bells
The local pub is expected to up sticks once again and move onsite for the duration. The Village Bells will be selling a fine selection of local Ales, Ciders and Wines all at normal pub prices.
Children are the inspiration behind this festival and so there will be all sorts for the children to do.
The festival supports the Oceanward charity at Southampton General Hospital
