A few weeks a go at the end of August I was invited to the Big Feastival by Electrolux. Now I am a massive lover of festivals and i am a massive lover of food so this combination is just perfect. I took mum along with me as my plus one as she has never been to a festival before.
First up as soon as we got to the Feastival which was on Blur’s Bassist Alex Jame’s farm we headed over to the Electrolux suite as we were booked onto the Electrolux chef’s secrets course. The chef that was instructing us and teaching us how to cook was Tim Kitchen As I’m not the most competent cook mum helped me along, god we had such a laugh and sous chef was just the loveliest. He practically stuck with us the whole time because basically I was the worst helper and I think he felt sorry for me and mum and picked up that my accent wasn’t that posh and as a fellow Londoner we chatted for a while and mum snapped some pictures.
One of the main reasons I decided to choose the line up on the Sunday as the line sounded like good fun, We wondered over to the main stage after our cooking session and caught the ever lovely Lawrence Fox singing some wonderful self penned tunes, seriously a massive fan of this man. Currently sat watching his tv show Lewis as I type this! haha
Me and Mum picked some lovely pieces for lunch mine mainly involved home made chocolate brownies and Hot chocolate and whilst in the cue I got to meet Adam from from Country File. Also whilst I was sat listening to the music we bumped into Hollywood film star Jason Flemyng.
I also naughtily made a few purchases whilst I was at the Feastival, two beautiful rings from the Medusa stall (which I have subsequently misplaced in the last few weeks) and a lovely vintage purchase that I will be sharing in a separate post.
One of my favorite acts I have ever seen live would have to be the Cuban brothers seriously if you have never seen them before, seriously the most hilarious live band ever, I don’t think I have ever seen mum laugh so much, then Jamie Oliver came out with Alex James came out and played a hilarious set.
We wandered around until late evening people watching we had such a wonderful day. As we wander around KT Tunstall and mark Owen played in the background on the main stage. The weather was lovely and warm, an all round nice day. We drank lovely herbal tea and listening to Alex James talk about cheese. The Feastival would be perfect for a family day out, spending the day with friends and family eating great food and meeting lovely people. The train journey home me and mum made good friends with a lovely girl called Abbey as all 3 of us sat on the floor of a very packed train glad with what was a wonderful day. Thank you Electrolux for a beautiful end to my summer.
