The best family event of the summer, Camp Bestival, has announced the return of its legendary carnival of cuisine, The Feast Collective. And if you’re heading down to Dorset this summer there are some familiar local faces for you to look out for! The Feast Collective is back for its sixth year featuring exceptional, artisan food producers from across the UK in Lulworth Castle from the 25th – 28th July 2019.

The Feast Collective is a food lovers’ haven bringing together a truly mouth-watering array of provocative food producers, steamy street food wizards and intoxicating cooks to provide the most seductive festival food you’re ever likely to taste.
If you’re a frequent visitor of Last Friday at LCB Depot in the Cultural Quarter then you’re probably already familiar with Bomboo Street Food! The Leicester lads who are so hot here on the vegan scene are now heading down south to showcase their awesome food to the crowds at Camp Bestival too.
