North Cornwall’s Summer Party Returns. The Rock Oyster Festival 2015 a feast of food, fun and music.
Set on the banks of the Camel river estuary at Dinham House and close to Wadebridge, Rock Oyster Festival is as much of a festival lover’s dream, as a Cornwall lover’s dream.
Rock Oyster champions the arts, children’s entertainment and theatre, food, music, fine wine and great beer, talks and riverside walks and even long table banquets cooked by local chefs.
A fantastic music line up remains the anchor of entertainment at the festival and this year is no exception. The organiser Charlie Anderson said "We will be announcing our full line up in mid February and I guarantee that our festival goers are in for a treat".
Rock Oyster Festival is widely popular and now, in its sixth year, is a well established proper summer celebration. A great open air party for all ages in an idyllic setting, with stunning views rolling down to touch the banks of the River Camel from the campsite and festival grounds.
Festival organiser, Charlie Anderson, said "Rock Oyster is the perfect answer for festival goers who are turning their backs on the mainstream “bun fight” in their droves. If you are looking for a small festival with its own identity but still offers banging entertainment and with Cornwall at its heart, you have found the right place".
"The music line up this year we guarantee to match and overtake previous years. We have already announced festival favourites "The Land of The Giants" and there are more red hot acts to announce in the coming weeks."
The Festival prides itself on providing a great choice of excellent food to eat and what is on offer is far from a festival norm of burgers and chips. Porthilly oysters from the Camel Estuary, succulent mussels cooked by chefs of the St. Moritz Hotel, huge paellas and spicy
Cornish curries and delicious bespoke wood-fire cooked pizzas. There is something to delight all palates and for the children, back by popular demand, Alice in her amazing orange van.
Charlie Anderson added "We ran a Farmer’s Market for the first time last year which was a huge success. We will be keeping a very modest stall charge as we are keen to contact even the smallest local food business, so that we can show off the huge variety of top quality food that Cornwall can proudly boast."
The Beer Big Top will be back in strength serving a great range of guest and Cornish ales. And Wadebridge Wines will be there for those with a taste for the grape.
Families are always the focus for Rock Oyster, kids love the festival and the festival loves kids. This year the children will again be taking over the Big Top main stage all afternoon, with the best in kids entertainment set to captivate the children and big kids alike. Children’s activities will include archery, horse drawn carriage rides, storytelling, Badger Forest School, craft workshops and football on Saturday morning for the campers.
Like the pearl hidden within the oyster shell, Rock Oyster Festival is one of Cornwall’s gems.
