Set in the stunning Arreton valley just outside of the pretty village of Newchurch; now world famous for it’s abundance of wonderful food producers, we have the perfect setting for our quirky and pungent festival!
With so many festivals popping up over the years, we have tried to keep the roots of our lovely summer show within the community while still moving with the times… keeping it rooted in the style that helped start it in 1983. We are the Island’s biggest summer show, with live music, arena entertainment, live shows and a most importantly fantastic food. There is something for the whole family and we work hard to offer a varied experience over the weekend.
At the heart of the festival is of course Britain’s best most loved and pungent garlic, produced right here on the Isle of Wight, in Newchurch by the multi award-winning Garlic Farm. Working with the farm we are able to offer a truly magnificent garlic experience. You’ll find it everywhere, to eat, drink and buy!
We are delighted to welcome back The Flying Seagull Project this year, with their infectious energy to delight the crowds! You’ll also find festival friends Longdown Activity Farm, Tom Hogg with his hilarious ‘Hogg Show', The Vanders and Superheroes in the arena and on the kids stage this year we’ll have The Greatest Showman party! As we continue working on this years festival bookings and entertainment, check out the fun we had last year to get you in the mood!
Timings for Arena, Stage Performances and Kids Stage will appear in our festival programme, which is free on the gate. Along with a site map and guide so you can plan your day!
