Fri, 22 Sep 2017, 12:00 – Sun, 24 Sep 2017, 22:30 BST
The StrEat Food and Family Fun Festival is all set to take over the beautiful Newby Hall and Gardens in Ripon on the 22/23/24th of September 2017. A National Celebration of some of the Best Street Food Traders from across the UK with an eclectic collection of traders with food from across the world in a manner of unusual vehicles, Horseboxes and AirStreams to Citreon H Vans and Campervans. Bright, colourful and full of characters the street food traders will add a flash of colour, exotica, tastes and smells to the normally tranquil Newby Hall Gardens.
Once sated you can relax in our Vintage Deckchairs or BeanBags and enjoy the tunes from Swoolish. Swoolish is arriving from Holland and will be bringing his vintage living room and vinyls to help you while away the hours. Their tunes will create the atmosphere of a smooth and sultry jazz club but with an eclectic mixture of boogaloo, calypso, boogie woogie, mambo and blue grass.
During the day you can visit our Water Spa, it’s quirky, it’s fun, it’s relaxing… Ever seen a wheelbarrow double as a lazy chair? Well you will and you’ll love it! Take a load off in one of the wheelbarrow loungers, let the mobile kettle cart run you up a warm footbath and who knows you might even be treated to an award deserving foot rub by one of the ‘charmers’! No footbath is complete without a selection of relaxing tunes to let those thoughts wander by…
Our Naughty Tea Ladies, Jean and Morag will ride around the Gardens on their specially adapted tricycle causing mischief and mayhem. They interact with children, photo bomb everyone, sing at the top of their very poor singing voices, kiss you on the cheek when you least expect it and steal your picnic!
Our Wandering Band will take you on a magic carpet ride for an amazing musical trip traversing many corners of the earth. They’ve been astounding audiences throughout Europe for many years with their anarchic melange of traditional European and world musical styles of all eras, throwing them together to form an infectious unique brand of music that never fails to have audiences jumping around in a frenzy !!
The StrEaters and Vintage Lawn Society will be on hand to entertian and amaze all day, the children can do bushcraft and den building in the woods, they can even cook up their own bug pancakes...if they really want too!
An outdoor movie theatre will keep the children entertained with iconic movies and special guests, make sure you bring your dinasour invisibility cloaks...Back to the Future, The Lost Boys, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, The Jungle Book and Shaft will be our movies for the weekend and the themese fit in with our main stage surprises! You can even book a Luxury Hot tubs for up to 8 people in which to watch the movies!
The StrEat Glamping Village has hot tubs to book for your own private party followed by a chill around the campfire...Book a beautiful Bell Tent in our VIP village with The Outdoors People! Bushcraft-Glamping, it's less of a straight-forward "glamp" and more of an adventure!
The key part of the experience is what's going on outside your tent. Under our giant shelters, you'll find the campfire merrily burning away, the kettle on, camp blankets and hot drinks for everyone and above it all: the stars!
Once you've been camping with The Outdoors People, nothing else compares!
The main stage has some amazing bands and fantastic headline names but we aren't releasing that information just yet... We don't want to overload you with excitment! Watch out on the first of every month for exciting updates...
