SUNDAY BACON CLUB AT WILDERNESS
Some exciting news: this year, I am bringing Sunday Bacon Club to Wilderness. Wilderness is an ace food focussed music festival (hooray!) in Oxford, and it doesn’t stop there, it also has lots of theatre, small stages with more eclectic stuff, a roller disco, a spa, yoga and wild swimming. Fun!
I went last year as a punter and had a wonderful time, highlights of which were breakfasts at St John and feasts at Hix & Polpo (there were also feasts from Moro & Ottolenghi), lots of music and dancing, a fantastic French circus thing and late nights down in the woods revelling. I was keen to go back this year and happily an email popped into my inbox. Would I be keen to bring Sunday Bacon Club to the Wilderness Cookery School this year? Well, YES, I would.
Tickets for Wilderness are on sale now (it always sells out so be speedy), as are tickets for Sunday Bacon Club. It is a shorter class than normal at a bargain £40. I am so looking forward to it. Feasts (immense marquee banquets) this year are from Angela Hartnett, Simon Rogan, Polpo, Hix, Moro & Morito. St John are doing a la carte too. And some are sold out already.
My posts from last year, to refresh your memory!

EAT LIKE A GIRL AT BLOGSTOCK
I have been invited to host and curate all of the food content for the world’s first bloggers festival, Blogstock. Unlike most blogging events, it is multi-discplinary, and is a great opportunity to meet and collaborate outside of our own niches. It will be held in Elstree, just outside of London.
Blogstock will be all about creativity, inspiration, collaboration and fun across the blogging niches. There will be workshops on creative writing in a tepee and an iPhone photography workshop wandering through the woods. You could sit on the grass whilst listening to a discussion on the future of blogging from the main stage, or hear about the latest in food blogging and Vine videos in a marquee.
The early bird tickets are currently priced at £69 and can be purchased here. These include entry to the whole event as well as camping for the weekend, family and group tickets are also available at a special rate until the weekend. They are almost all sold out, and the last day to get your hands on them is this Sunday, 1st June.
I would love to hear what you would like to have in the food section. I plan on running a couple of blogging / writing workshops myself, but I am entirely open after that, so please shout, if there is anything specific that you would like. If you are keen to be involved, you being bloggers, brands, or anyone with an idea, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
