Sunday saw us zoom over to the Big Feastival in the Cotswold’s on Alex James’ farm, so we could eat ALL the food, get our dance on, and bask in the sunny rays we were blessed with until dawn.
It was all kind of magical!
This is my festival outfit. You can read all about it HERE.
Thanks to Nikki from Take it From Mummy, I got my sparkle on for the fest (she decorated my face making me feel like a total Queen in the queue for oven-baked pizza), and we literally lived out our best lives all day long.
The kids were OBSESSED with the rides (‘more Mummy, more’) and the haystacks they climbed on was their favourite thing to do, PLUS, it was heartwarming to see so many small food/clothes and toy businesses shining brightly at the fest.
Xander wears Gap from head to toe, Oliver in H&M.
Food-wise, I opted for the stall Corn, with you’ve guessed it: long corn on the cobs enjoyed with a vegan sweet potato of dreams spilling over with homemade crunchy salsa. Delish.
The kids nicked my cob then made me queue up again so they could have their own.
Peter opted for a veggie Buddha bowl topped high with wholesome goodness (rice, kale, curry and hallumi cheese) whilst the kids scoffed open oven-baked pizza, along with my flipping corn!
Peter gobbled Mac ‘n’ Cheese for dinner (and it took a lot of willpower to say no to it as gluten and dairy are not my friends *weep).
Creamy ice cream and organic lollies were also the order of the day, and as we left, I guzzled two oat smoothies made with oat milk, juicy bananas and local honey which I’m going to recreate every day for brekkie, now we’re home.
Xander gobbled a choc brownie too. Look at that face!
As per, the kids nicked my shake hence why I needed two! If you don’t like to share your food, peeps, don’t have kids ;)!
What a day! I’m so glad we made the Big Feastival this year.
Although Jamie Oliver wasn’t officially involved this time (he was there over the weekend) Oliver, 7, and I got to hang out and cook with him last year before the fest, and the BF has been on my radar a while.
We were in Cannes last year so couldn’t attend, but our move to Windsor meant we were close by and ready to party. Listening to my hero Millie Small and My Boy Lollipop made my year!
We’ll definitely be back again next year!
Did you attend too?
Thanks to the Big Feastival for inviting us and treating us to the best time!
