This promised to be a melange of music and pop-up restaurants created by Essex's own Jamie Oliver with the proceeds going to charity; The Prince's Trust and the Jamie Oliver Foundation. Having been disappointed with food festivals recently, namely Taste and the Foodies Festivals, I had mixed feelings about how I would find this one but in general, the concept was unique and prompted my immediate interest. What furthered my interest was the chance to see Soul II Soul perform on stage to relive my late teenage years!
Friday was my day of choice and after being hooked to the first men's semi-final of Wimbledon (Tsonga Vs. Djokovic) we decided to head off for The Big Feastival (even when it meant missing my countryman, Andy Murray, playing the following semi-final).
