FOOD & DRINK

FRIDAY NIGHT FREE BAR - 6-10pm FREE cider, lager & wine - make the most of it!  

We will also have professional bar staff serving up an array of amazing cocktails.  We keep our prices lower than other festivals  - how is this possible?... Its all about volume and the fact we are a non-profit party.  So don't let us down, please drink heavily at the Haselstock bars and no cheeky chappies sneaking in your own supplies!

This year we have selected a mighty fine collection of food & drink stalls catering for meat eaters, veggies and snackers.  Often stall holders won't take the financial risk with such small festival as ours, but these lovely people have jumped on the haselstock merry-go-round, so please support them with your wonderful custom, their food is awesome!

Lily Vanilli - ice ice baby...  is a British baker of extraordinary cakes and a sculpture of delicious design.  Afternoon tea has never looked or tasted so good. See for yourself... www.lilyvanilli.com

Lily will also team up with our resident live poet Simon Welsh  to create the Poetry Cafe.  Look out for opening times, this is how it works...

Ask for the menu and select from a list of cakes and poems; just as you would order a starter, a main course and a pudding in a regular café.   Simon will come and sit with you at your table to perform your menu choice while you eat your wonderful cake, or if you prefer take up his performance position a little further away, and share their choice with the whole café!

They are a small producer from the Scottish Highlands providing a fun (and delicious) way to encourage people to branch out and eat British.  Their meat is not just wild or from 'somewhere' up north, they can tell you exactly who shot it and where.
