Each year we host a variety of different activities to feed your mind, body and soul. That might come from the acts playing music; or the workshops where you get to create, learn and develop. Perhaps you’ll get involved in one of our talks; you’ll almost certainly eat some food which is exclusively cooked by the Jamie’s Farm team; the farmer’s olympics is always popular and then of course there’s how you want to enjoy the festival- however you blooming want to! As we get more details we’ll keep you posted but it’s all designed to bring us together, allow us to have fun, to think, to enjoy and be part of.
The Food Barn
The tastiest place to be at the festival! The Food Barn is all about communal feasting where you’ll be able to enjoy bountiful vegetarian feasts, BBQs, cafe delights, pizzas and much more! All of the food that you can buy at Cock & Bull is provided by Jamie’s Farm – a fact that we are very proud of.
The Kids’ Space
This year’s Kids’ Space at Cock & Bull is going to be bigger and better than ever. There will be a whole roster of activities for the younguns including toddlers, younger kids and teenagers. Expect live music, lots of crafting, games and more.
Cock & Bull is a small festival, but that doesn’t mean that we scrimp on the fun and thought-provoking. As with previous years, we’ll be packing our beautiful farm with fantastic stages and areas for your festival pleasure…
The Healing Space
As much as Cock & Bull is about having fun it’s also about reconnecting with yourself and the world; the Healing Space is the perfect place to do this. Come and relax, take part in workshops and treat yourself to some downtime.
The Craft Field
We love to get crafty, and the Craft Field is the place to do it. Come and slow down, relax and get creative. Workshops will include watercolour painting, green woodwork, jewellery making and more.
The JF Talks Tent
Never one to shy away from important issues, the JF Talks Tent will have a curated lineup of guest speakers and discussions. There will be a host of topics including Jamie’s Farm and education, as well as many TED style talks.
The fringe of the festival, the area you’re never sure what’s going to happen until you realise it’s the start of the farmer Olympics, or you’re hula hooping with Marawa’s Majorettes, it is also the home of the camera obscura.
The Farmer Olympics
One of the highlights, for many, of the festival is the Farmer Olympics. Just like the real-life Olympics, festival goers are pushed to the peaks of endurance with demonstrations of skill in walloping wellies, throwing hay bales, avoiding getting eggs on their face and more – just like the real-life Olympics, only more farmer.
One of the best things about Cock & Bull is that the campsite is only a five-minute walk to your car and the main festival arena – no hauling your belongings for miles! Our beautiful campsite provides you with outdoor compost toilets and showers.
Campervans are allowed with a campervan ticket.
The Info Tent
Need some general info about Cock & Bull? This is where you go. It’s also the main headquarters for the festival and where you can get your merch.
Fancy Dress theme
Each year we pick a fancy dress theme for our Saturday Night procession- although feel free to be in fancy dress the entire weekend if you want!
Last year we went for “Lettuce Turnip the Beet” and we loved the outfits that this punny theme allowed for.
This year we asked our followers on our social media channels to come up with another suitably punny theme and they went for…
Now, we’ll let you decide where you want to take this. Robot farmers or farmers in drag, or a mixture of the two! Let your imagination go wild and keep an eye on our social channels where we’ll be posting costume ideas if you want some inspiration.
