Round up your friends, grab your wellies and head down to River Cottage this August (15th–16th) for a spectacular arrangement of live music, hula hooping, pig racing, welly wanging and, of course, plenty of food and drink. It's great fun for all the family, with puppet shows, a bouncy castle and garden games to keep the kids entertained, as well as junior pottery, muesli masterclasses and needle felting workshops. Animal-lovers are in for a treat too, as there'll be donkey rides, pig racing, falconry displays and visits from their own River Cottage livestock.
