There are now only 6 weeks to go until we transform the grounds of Alex James' beautiful Cotswold abode into a festival wonderland for our 6th Big Feastival on the farm.
As you know, The Big Feastival is for ALL the family and we have crafted our biggest and best programme of all-round entertainment yet to prove it.
We also have some useful information on how to get to the festival, including the release of National Express Coach tickets, a shuttle bus service and festival parking passes.
If all this excitement is too much to resist...get in super quick as weekend camping tickets are seriously starting to dwindle.
