Set in 60 acres of beautiful Devon countryside is River Cottage HQ. A seventeenth century farmhouse where the acclaimed chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall films his TV shows and also runs cookery masterclasses, apprenticeships and bespoke dining experiences.

For one weekend of the year the farm transforms to a lovely two-day family friendly festival. With music, cookery classes, and family fun to enjoy.

Facilities available

  • Secure camping
    Oxfam has its own safe and secure campsite which is equipped with a marquee as a community space for our volunteers.
  • Hot tea & coffee
    We also provide all volunteers with access to hot tea and coffee, hot showers and toilets, so it’s really every festival goers dream!
  • Phone charging
    We know that access to power on a festival site is usually tricky so we ensure access to free phone charging points in our marquee.

    You will also receive a meal token for each shift, to keep you full of smiles with a happy tummy.
