2. Feast Up!

It’s a celebrity double whammy in Oxfordshire this weekend. Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival is a food festival set on the farm of Blur bassist Alex James. There’ll be music by the likes of Paloma Faith and Noisettes, plus fun and games. Camping tickets are sold out, but you can still nab yourself day entry.
