Down in the Valley


Valley Fest promises to be a feast for all the senses

This year’s Valley Fest promises to be a treat for all the senses with pampering spa treatments and fabulous feasts as well as a stellar musical line-up.

Crowd-pleasing Bristol young guns The Shimmer Band, award-winning folk singer and BBC radio star Emily Portman, Dutch masters of funked-up New Orleans sound Broken Brass Ensemble and Bristol favourites Sheelanagig  will join Craig Charles, Hannah Williams, The Blockheads and Stereo MC’s who will be headlining the festival.

The Village Green spa and wellbeing area, sponsored by Weleda, the world’s leading manufacturer of holistic natural cosmetics will feature a Spa Safari, luxury treatments and wellbeing therapies. Festival-goers in the Village Green can visit exclusive showers with Weleda experience packages and sample the iconic Weleda Skin Food. The team of beauty experts will also be offering amazing facials, massages and masks in a beautiful geodome. The enchanting world of Zutopia will feature a chill-out lounge, an open mic stage, a honey mead and elixir bar, a geo pyramid juice bar, Gong Fu tea ceremony tent and a games tent.

When the clock strikes twelve on Saturday night at Valley Fest, a midnight feast will take place under the stars, warmed by the communal campfire, with feast boxes full of naughty delights.

Inside they’ll find indulgent goodies from the likes of Boston Tea Party and Yeo Valley, rescue remedies for the next day and golden tickets for special Sunday treats. The campfire will come alive with live music and theatre with some surprises along the way.

On Sunday Valley Fest is thrilled to be hosting a huge communal picnic on a huge festival blanket. Join other families and groups of mates to taste picnic food cooked up on site by some of the South West’s best chefs including Josh Eggleton (The Pony and Trap), Toby Gritten (The Pump House) and Paul Collins (Yeo Valley Canteen).
