Ashburton’s New Festival

Brand new this summer is Ashburton’s The Little Big Festival, which takes place at Higher Mead Farm in Alston Cross from 24-26 July

The Little Big Festival flags

With a top line-up of acts including music, poetry, dance, comedy, workshops, crafts, food and children’s entertainment, this promises to be Devon’s unmissable event of the year! One of the weekend’s foodie highlights is a talk/Q&A session from the team at The Fish Deli in Ashburton about its book: Four Seasons at the Fish Deli, with an emphasis on sustainability. 

Enthusiastic producers of shows and events, festivals, food and drink weekends, comedy and dancing gigs, the team behind The Big Little Festival has worked at Glastonbury Festival for many years, and also started The Port Eliot Festival in 2003. A mixture of singers, producers, nurses, musicians, sound engineers, actors, site managers and stage-managers, these seasoned professionals have a wealth of experience, making this new festival an unmissable date for your diary.

Tickets: Adult Day: £40, Teenager Day (13–17 years): £35 Child Day (5–12 years): £20, under fives go free. Camping is available (£40 for the weekend for a caravan or campervan), as well as on-site parking (£15 for the weekend). Please check the website for weekend rates, plus the latest news and event details.
