The live kitchen theatre is perfect for foodies, home cooks, and anyone looking to expand their culinary knowledge.

There will also be a specially curated lineup of Kentish musicians on the music stage, featuring Glastonbury regulars Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs, local favourites Marylebone Jelly, the incredible Phat Gandalf and an open mic stage for local talent to showcase their skills!
