CARS GALORE

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD

Car-Fest South won’t leave you going hungry as there is plenty to dig your teeth into.  From Mexican food, to Spanish, Japanese to Thai, there’s certainly something to cater for everyone’s taste buds.

Sweet or Savoury, Car-Fest South is offering up their ‘Britain’s Best’ food market. Independent food producers will come together and sell some of their most delicious treats to the public, including, jams, fudge, pickles and biscuits.

If you want to sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere, why not delve into some traditional vintage tea? Over in the Vintage Village, you will step back in time and enjoy hot drinks and cakes in the show’s quaint little tea room. 

Alternatively, over at The Kitchen Stage, join culinary experts who will be talking you through their ingredients and favourite dishes. Come along and see familiar faces, such as Great British Bake Off’s Briony May, British TV presenter Angellica Bell, British Chef and television presenter, James Martin, along with so many more experts.

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

Car-Fest South is fun for all the family. Car-Fest’s Vintage Village will sweep you off your feet with vintage market traders, sweet shops, and vintage cars that will take you back to the 1930’s through to the swinging 60’s.  

Step in time to the beat with Car-Fest’s Car-nival! Move your hips to the sound of samba, brass and steel bands as troops will be marching down the promenade. Amaze yourself with baton twirlers, giant inflatables, crazy cars and of course… glitter.

Entertain the kids all weekend in the Kids Theatre. Make your way through the giant bookcase and uncover characters from children’s stories. Clown around with the kids as they can get involved with the circus workshop, learn the tricks of the trade and in time, who knows, they could be plate spinning round your dinner table.

Talking of talents… why not stop by The Buskstop? Think you have a talent that needs sharing, whether you dance, sing or clap your hands, get the audience at your feet as you can perform your act over at the Buskstop in your own dedicated time slot.

Meet Pudsey Bear for his Big Learner Relay. Let their inner car enthusiast shine as they hop behind the wheel of a shiny car to practice and get ready for that all-important day when they take to the roads by themselves.
