THE BIG FEASTIVAL 2019 (23RD - 25TH AUGUST):
Fancy singing, moving, creating and making? Then our music and arty workshops at the festival are the place for you.
Orchestra of Objects
With giant percussive instruments and sound sculptures, the Orchestra of Objects brings a unique musical experience for all our big and little Feastival-goers. Come on by the Village Green to play freely and immerse yourself in a sonic and visual feast for all ages.
Royal Shakespeare Company Workshops
The Workshop is your chance to get seriously creative at The Big Feastival. We are thrilled to be working with the Royal Shakespeare Company again as they celebrate individuality with their brand new 2019 family musical, The Boy in the Dress. From the novel by David Walliams, adapted by Mark Ravenhill and with music and lyrics by Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers, this heart-warming story bursts onto stage in Stratford-upon-Avon from 8 November. Join them for games, dressing up, face painting, workshops and lots more in a Walliams world of football…and fashion!
Royal Albert Hall Band
We are so excited to welcome Albert’s Band from the Royal Albert Hall to be with us at The Big Feastival this summer. Join musicians from the Royal Albert Hall for an interactive family workshop in which we will create an amazing new piece of music each day inspired by the headline act from The Big Feastival main stage. No prior musical experience necessary, just lots of enthusiasm.
Since it first opened its doors in 2009 The Makery has taught over 100,000 people a new skill in its craft workshops and events. Working with the likes of Soho House, John Lewis and Anthropologie, over the course of a decade it’s become a global brand. Makery craft kits sell all over the world and its sister company MakeryLIVE.com brings brands to life and engage audiences through its experiential events.
The Makery will be on hand to entertain kids young and old with their exciting crafty activities in the arts and craft area of The Big Feastival 2019. They can paint, colour, stick and print to their hearts content! Take a look at which craft workshops kids young or old can get involved in across the weekend where they can make and take away their creations:
Tie dye bandanas: Time to get messy! Make your own trendy tie-dye bandanas to rock out with!
Headbands: Make your very own festival headbands using pom-poms, feathers and ribbon.
Keyrings: Make your own tassel-tastic keyring. We reckon the grown-ups will want one of these too, they're so cool!
Superhero Masks: Choose your superhero character, then make a mask to ignite your superhero powers!
Workshops will be run throughout the weekend, so drop-in to secure your spot in a workshop. Places are based on a first come first served basis so make sure you don't miss out!

The Science Museum
UPDATE: we are very sorry to announce that due to industrial action, the Science Museum is no longer able to attend The Big Feastival 2019. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
NEW for this summer, the Science Museum will be coming to the farm! Bringing their Slime Time workshop to the festival for the first time, see how slime can push, pull, change shape and transform into different states – as well as taking some slippery slime home with you. Greatest Hits is a whistle-stop tour through all of the Science Museum’s favourite experiments – prepare for it to be explosive! If that wasn’t enough, head Out of this World to journey into space as an astronaut on a rocket looking for alien life – you never know what you may find…
Get back to nature with West Country Bushcraft at The Big Feastival. Take part in a Willow Workshop where you will learn to weave something delightful to take home with you! If you can handle something a little hotter then the fire lighting workshop is for you. Teaching you all the skills to light a fire out in the wild, an essential for every keen camper.
