food-e-matters Rock Oyster Festival 2011

A boutique food and music festival is to move to a new venue on Cornwall’s north coast this summer.Taking place from 17th to 19th June, the Rock Oyster Festival will bring together the best of Cornish food and produce, quirky music acts and family entertainment – and raise thousands of pounds for charity.



Event organiser Charlie Anderson said: “Last year the event was a great success, and we’re thrilled to announce that the 2011 festival will be held at a stunning new venue, Dinham House, right on the banks of the Camel Estuary near Rock.“We’re a not-for-profit festival, and we raised over £4,000 last year for our nominated charities the RNLI and St Minver School. This year we’re delighted to be supporting Cornwall Hospice Care and The Army Benevolent Fund and really want to raise as much money as possible.”

The move to Dinham House affords organisers more space, and for the first time on-site camping will be available within the grounds.

The three day family-orientated festival begins on Friday evening with Circus Berzercus and Bentley Rhythm Ace Live.Saturday and Sunday showcase oysters and seafood from top chefs including Nathan Outlaw (chef and owner at Cornwall’s only two-Michelin-starred restaurant) alongside food stalls selling affordable local produce, and a hotly-anticipated oyster shucking competition between the chefs present.The festival features some cult musical acts such as The Destroyers. Described by Q Magazine as a “15-piece polka orchestra led by a short grandad in a fez who talks like a pirate,” the gypsy jazz band will return to play the event on the Saturday night.

Said Mr Anderson: “We’ve also lined up an internationally renowned band who are jetting in all the way from New York for the Saturday evening headline slot. New musical acts, chefs and entertainment are being added to the website all the time so make sure you keep checking rockoysterfestival.co.uk for the latest information.”Helen Vincent from The Army Benevolent Fund said the money raised at the festival will make a real difference to the lives of ex-serviceman.She said: “We are extremely grateful to the Rock Oyster Festival for choosing ABF The Soldiers’ Charity as one of its charities this year. The money raised from the event will be used to help soldiers, former soldiers and their families in times of need.“This could be for adapting a house for a wheelchair or a walk-in shower, education bursaries, care home fees or respite breaks. ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has seen a 30% rise in cases over the past two years and that need continues to rise.”

Tickets are on sale now from rockoysterfestival.co.uk with a limited number of early bird weekend tickets available at £28. On site camping is also available priced £10 with spaces limited to the first 100 tents
