The Feast Collective is just one of the great things about Camp Bestival, with some of the best artisan food producers from across the UK.
The Feast Collective
Festival food has come a long way in recent years. Gone are greasy burgers and warm drinks. These days we want gourmet street food, fresh ingredients and inspiring choices. I know I do! I love that the Feast Collective at Camp Bestival is a foodie haven where some of the most exciting food producers gather to feed hungry festival-goers.
The Feast Collective is a celebration of exceptional, artisan food producers from across the UK. We have hunted down the best independent chefs, street vendors, and creative food makers and bringing them together to present the ultimate outdoor feasting experience at Camp Bestival.
I love that the Feast Collective has loads of big communal tables, plus music and cocktails! You’ll be spoilt for choice as the area is filled with exciting independent food producers. Last year I enjoyed stopping into the exhibition area to watch live food demos and tastings.
Some of the food I’m looking forward to the most include:
- Le Bao’s modern Taiwanese
- Plant-based and foraged foods from Milgi
- Northern Thai flavours from Kra Pow
- S’juice Me’s blend of smoothies and kombucha.
- For those mornings after, I’ll be heading to Firestation Coffee
- Another thing that I hope I can try is the pop up supper club at the Caravanserai – a crazy, gypsy punk area where the entertainment is guaranteed to be bizarre!
Food for Kids
My kids love these fruit and veg based lollies from Polar Pops. Healthy and so refreshing in the hot weather (please be hot weather again this year *does hopeful dance*)
This year, Children’s Food Ambassador, Jo Ingleby will be hosting the Kids’ Cooking Canopy. In conjunction with Bristol’s Love Food Festival, there will be child-friendly workshops and demos. My kids LOVE to help me cook, so I can’t wait to take them here to learn about how food is produced, where it should come from, how to grow and cook it. My kids will be delighted with the hands-on practice and tasting.

Laura Rowe, olive magazine editor, said of this year’s food offering: “We’re so thrilled to be media partners for this year’s Camp Bestival. The Feast Collective has a cracking line up of street food stars from across the UK – displaying the incredible diversity and the wealth of brilliant ingredients we have right here on our doorstep. I’m particularly excited about trying Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen. We featured Zoe’s brilliant recipes in our May issue and are now addicted to the vibrant, fiery flavours of Ghanaian food!”
Camp Bestival 2017 takes place27 Jul – 30 Jul 2017 in the grounds of Lulworth Castle in Dorset, UK. Organised by BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank, it’s targeted at families with small children. It’s a multi-award winning family festival experience. Alongside music from the likes of Brian Wilson, Madness, Leftfield and Mark Ronson, there will also be a huge kids’ area, loads of thrilling activities from soft play and circus skills to go-carts and glitter. Plus, there are kids’ shows and performances on the Castle Stage and in the Big Top, daring antics to be had at the Freesports Park, and fairytale escapism in the Dingly Dell.
