Sip – Drinks Theatre

Sussex is becoming well known for it’s wine and beer production and this year we’ll be toasting the festival in style in the Wine and Champagne Theatre where experts Charles Metcalfe and Neil Phillips will be talking about the best local bubbles and comparing them to sparkling wines around the world. If beer is more your bag then head to the Beer Theatre where Melissa Cole will be running sessions on beer and food matching. Visitors can test their taste buds with blindfolded challenges, where they will have to taste and smell to try and identify ingredients and country of origin.  These classes are also a great opportunity for novices to learn about champagne, wine and beer notes.

Crunch – Into the Jungle

Festival goers can munch their way into the depths of the jungle this summer with a trip to the Vietnamese Street Food stand, where those with a taste for the exotic can indulge in insects, including grasshoppers, caterpillars, mealworms, beetles, scorpions, locus and ants. These tasty critters will also be sold in powder and flour form – a high source of protein – to bake, season and cook with. For those brave enough, there’s a daily Bush Tucker Trial on the Challenge Stage, where visitors compete against one another by eating jungle insects, from small ants to large juicy grubs, with the contestant eating the biggest and the most being crowned champion.
