Food & Music Festival on the Camel Estuary
Rock Oyster Festival is returning to the Cornish coastline 30th July – 1st August 2021 with an incredible line-up of music and food featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Nick Mulvey, Gilles Peterson, Dub Pistols, Soull II Soul, Jaguar Skills and Olivia Dean alongside pop-up restaurants and chefs demos hosted by Paul Ainsworth.
To mark its 10th anniversary, Rock Oyster has announced that it will be hosted by a different chef every year and this year Paul Ainsworth is at the helm, curating Rock Oyster’s food line-up with chefs like Valentine Warner, Josh Eggleton, Juliet Sear, Ping Coombes, Gill Meller and Michael Caines coming to cook with him by the Camel Estuary.
Set in the stunning location of Dinham House, you’ll be camping with a festival view that’s hard to beat. With plenty of nearby beaches and excursions to explore, this is a destination festival you’ll never forget.
A handful of Cornwall’s best loved restaurants will be popping up in The Chefs Tipis with Paul Ainsworth bringing The Mariner’s from Rock, Andi Tuck bringing the St Kew Inn, John Hooker bringing The Cornish Arms from Tavistock and Great British Menu favourites Jude Kereama, Guy Owen and Nick Beardshaw also hosting a Tipi throughout the weekend.
And for those who are keen to hone their own cooking skills, Rock Oyster has a packed programme of chefs demos and an open fire cooking stage featuring Steven Lamb, Romy Gill, Jack Bristow, Ben Quinn and many more.
Outdoor adventures and wellbeing activities are a big feature of this year’s festival with Standup paddleboarding, canoeing, archery, wild running, aerial yoga and spa treatments to choose from.
Rock Oyster has always been a favourite with local families and there is plenty to keep kids happy this year too including forest school, a sea creature fashion show, circus skills, hula-hooping and storytelling at dusk.
This year’s music line-up is bigger and better than ever before as Rock Oyster pulls out all the stops for its 10th birthday. Alongside this year’s headliners are local favourites Bailey Tomkinson, Nathan Ball and Brother Sea.
Expect family festival antics by day, live music and campfire delights by night, with heavenly food all weekend. Rock Oyster is a 3 night festival and camping holiday in one!
