If you loved the Valley Gardens StrEat Food Festival over the bank holiday weekend then prepare yourself for the brand new StrEat Food and Family Fun Festival launching at Newby Hall and Gardens from 22-24th September!
The 3 day event will take festival goers and foodie fans on a gastronomic global journey of discovery, combined with a quirky and diverse mix of fun, film, current acts and bands on the main stage, as well as eclectic entertainment and general mayhem for the whole family to experience – all set in the backdrop of the beautiful Newby Hall grounds in North Yorkshire.
From good grub to glamping, camping to craft beer teepees and cocktail bars, as well as movies to music, bath tubs to bushcraft and much more – festival goers will experience an exciting energy and enthusiastic menu of food, fun and entertainment throughout this 3-day event.
Radio 1 DJ and TV Presenter Scott Mills is set to headline the StrEat Food and Family Fun Festival. Scott will be supported by 5ive, one of the UK’s biggest boybands alongside Huey Morgan, the charismatic front man of acclaimed rock and hip hop group Fun Lovin’ Criminals.
All manner of vehicles from horseboxes and AirStreams to Citreon H Vans and Campervans will serve a scrummy selection of street food from some 60 traders from around the world. Visitors can expect an array of colourful traders with character who will challenge the senses with a fusion of smells, tastes, sounds and food firsts – there’s something for every appetite. An Artisan Market will also feature some 30 producers with handpicked products for visitors to try, buy and take home.
Europe’s largest outdoor cinema will keep movie buffs entertained with iconic and classic films, including a nostalgic 80’s night. The film feast includes Back to the Future, The Lost Boys, The Matrix, The Jungle Book and Jurassic Park with some surprise dino-tastic guests dropping by the main stage, so hold onto your popcorn! Fancy watching Jurassic from a jacuzzi or Jungle Book with bubbles – groups of 8 film fans can even book one of 4 Luxury Hot Tub for an indulgent viewing experience.
Kick back in a vintage deckchair or beanbag and enjoy music from the main stage with a top celebrity DJ and current headline performers and bands from UK and Europe. Swoolish will fly in from Holland to bring his vintage living room set and vinyls to Yorkshire. Tunes will create a smooth and sultry jazz club atmosphere with an eclectic mix of boogaloo, calypso, boogie woogie, mambo and blue grass.
Festival fans looking for some chill time and a fancy foot rub can relax in our quirky Water Spa where our lazy chairs ‘wheely’ look like wheelbarrows. Put your feet up in the wheelbarrow loungers and let the mobile kettle cart pamper your pins with a warm footbath. What better way to enjoy the festival tunes.
The Naughty Tea Ladies, Jean and Morag will be brewing up a storm around the Gardens on their specially adapted tricycle causing mischief and mayhem. They interact with the children, photo bomb everyone, sing at the top of their very poor singing voices, kiss you on the cheek when you least expect it and steal your picnic!
A Wandering Band will take visitors on a magic carpet ride for an amazing musical trip crossing many corners of the earth. They’ve been astounding audiences throughout Europe for many years with their anarchic medley of traditional European and world musical styles of all eras, throwing them together to form an infectious unique brand of music that never fails to have audiences jumping around in a frenzy!
The StrEaters and Vintage Lawn Society will be on hand to entertain and amaze all day, the children can enjoy bushcraft survival skills and den building in the woods and can even cook up their own bug pancakes…if they really want too!
StrEat’s Glamping Village features hot tubs to book for private parties followed by a campfire chill-out…Beautiful Bell Tents are available for festival goers to book in the VIP village with The Outdoors People! Bushcraft-Glamping, it’s less of a straight- forward “glamp” and more of an adventure…
The key part of the experience is what’s going on outside the tent. Under giant shelters, the campfire burns, the kettle’s on, camp blankets and hot drinks are available for everyone and above it all: the stars!
At just £60 per adult for a weekend ticket (3 days/nights) with children going FREE, this offers fantastic festival value for money. Day tickets £25 or £20 if you buy in advance.
