Free party celebrating array of home-grown food and music talent on 30 May - 1 June

Now in its third year, the 2014 Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival is a celebration of the best food and live music our beautiful region can offer.

Running from Friday 30th May to Sunday 1st June and set on the stunning waterside quay and town bandstand, this year’s festival has something for every member of the family and entry is FREE!

Food lovers will be in their element , with Middle Eastern and Southern Indian food, as well as wood fired pizzas, char grilled Steaks, Sushi, proper Devon Pasties, Thai and Chilli sauces, real ale and wines, meringues, cream teas, puddings, ice cream and much more. The Heron Valley cocktail and cider bar will be running throughout the event.

On the music front, this year we have an eclectic mix ranging from folk, blues and classical, to up-and-coming dance DJ’s, Ska and funk bands. Acts include: Sam Fearon, Panda, Chippie Tucker, Hazaar, The Sheikhs, Dr Oz, and Three Men in a Wok. The festival will also feature the not-to-be-missed, irrepressible 8-piece funk band ‘Freshly Squeezed’; and next-big-thing, the energetic soul band, ‘Yes Sir Boss’, who have played alongside Joss Stone, and featured on BBC Radio 1’s Rob Da Banks show, as well as on Radio 2, and 6 Music.

The Big Jam will take place on Sunday 1st June – an attempt at making a world record for the biggest group musical Jamming session (open invitation for anyone to download the chords and music from the website and come along with their instrument to play!). Talented young musicians are also encouraged to come along on Saturday and Sunday mornings until 11am to busk and showcase their music.

For more information, programmes are available from the Kingsbridge Tourist Information Office and other outlets around Kingsbridge at £2, or visit our website www.kingsbridgefoodandmusic.org .

The festival is a not-for-profit organisation and this year will be supporting local charity Devon Air Ambulance Trust http://www.daat.org/.
