Food Rocks Festival
was founded by Mark Hix in 2012 as a celebration of the finest local produce from Lyme Regis and surrounding area. Expect a feast of live cookery demonstrations and talks from top local chefs and food producers. The two-day food and drink extravaganza is just a short journey from our Charmouth holiday park
. The festival boasts a jam-packed programme of events and is free to attend for all the family.
The main stage
The festival main stage is hosted by the award-winning author Steven Lamb. A name synonymous with River Cottage, Steven has been central to the West Dorset based cookery school for over ten years.
