A quick run down of the Cotswolds hottest summer events from cottage owner Tiana Ricketts.
The Big Festival
Chef Jamie Oliver and ex-Blur band member Alex James are presenting The Big Feastival on Alex James’ farm near Kingham, Oxfordshire from 29th to 31st August. It’s a winning mix of music and food presented in a family-friendly way. Big music names such as Fat Boy Slim (Saturday) and Jamie Cullum (Sunday) will be there and many top chefs, including Levi Roots and Monica Galetti, to give us tips on how to enjoy our food!
The fabulous Blenheim Palace http://www.blenheimpalace.com/ is hosting the 2014 Game Fair between 18th and 20th July. It’s a great celebration of all that rural Britain has to offer by showcasing countryside activities. Visitors can view horse competitions, garden displays, and demonstrations of countryside skills and crafts. The Kennel Club Zone will be providing information and entertainment for all dog owners and people who are thinking of getting a dog.
Now for dogs that make us smile. Gifford’s Circus has to be top of the list of events for sheer fun to entertain not just the kids but grown-ups of all ages! It’s a travelling circus company of painted wagons which tours Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and North Somerset during the summer. Each year the show presents a different theme which intertwines theatre, music, puppetry and dance, includes a lovable clown, a goose and a live orchestra and this year – two sets of dogs for us to enjoy.
