Full line-up below (a-z)...

???? LIVE MUSIC ????

African Sambistas
Get down early and start the afternoon with a drumming circle led by the African Sambistas – famous for their ability to get everyone involved!

Bassdrummer
Composer, performer and sound designer Bassdrummer brings his unique one-man show to the Farm, mixing a blend of live drumming with samples and loops to deliver an energetic set full of floor-filling, booty-shaking drum & bass and jungle breaks.

The Fantasy Orchestra - Bristol
Over 40 musicians come together to create a truly wonderful kaleidoscopic symphonic brigade, with a repertoire spanning everything from Bollywood tunes to film soundtracks and pop classics, with some more obscure treasures thrown in for good measure too!

Feelgood Experiment
Soul-hop collective Feelgood Experiment combine their members’ love of jazz, soul, Afrobeat, hip hop and r&b to concoct bewitching tunes with irresistibly groovy harmonic lines. We defy you not to dance!

The Flamenco Thief
Expect a truly unique meeting of the classical and the contemporary, combining a deep respect for Flamenco heritage with modern technology and unusual techniques, to create a performance unlike anything you’ve experienced before.

The Great Sea Choir
A 40-strong contemporary a cappella folk choir with an exciting new-folk sound - coupled with the acoustics of the Mina Road tunnel, expect something pretty special!

Hotsteppas
10-piece reggae band Hotsteppas bring their famously energetic, vibrant and exciting live show to the paddock. Their sets span genres from traditional reggae to more modern soundsystem vibes, via dancehall, funk and soul – guaranteed to get you dancing!

John Langan

One third of aclaimed trio The Langan Band, John draws together influences from the highlands of Scotland right down to the Balkans.

Kirris Riviere Blues Band
As authentic as Tennessee whisky, the incredible vocals of Kirris Riviere, backed by some of the South West’s finest blues exponents, will take you back to old time greats like Muddy Waters, BB king and Buddy Guy.

Mad Apple Circus
An original blend of horn-fuelled styles, built on a fusion of ska/hip-hop/jazz and Latin grooves. Renowned for their upbeat vibes and energetic performances, these guys are sure to kick things off in style!

The NAGS
With soulful vocals from Alice Wild and Jamie Wizfox on electro acoustic guitar/harmonica/backing vocals, the New Age Gypsies have been living in a van for the past three months, taking their folk/gypsy/reggae sound around the country. Catch them at Boiling Wells before they spread their wings across Europe!

Red Ray & The Reprobates
Soulful harmonies, heartfelt lyrics, and a six-piece band combine to create a unique blend of country music telling stories of love, loss and retribution. Ray and his Reprobates bring a slice of true Americana outlaw to Bristol.

Riff Raff Choir
Riff Raff is a true Bristol community choir, with no auditions and sessions across the city. With a focus on pop, rock, and funk music, these guys bring a healthy dose of fun and inclusivity to their performances – you may even be tempted to sign up yourself!

Sabrina DeMi
With a love of collaborative jams and live performances, experimental Italian saxophonist Sabrina constantly seeks inspiration from new places and new people. Catch her solo concept show, featuring looping, sampling, singing, and - of course - the sax she takes with her everywhere!

True Strays
Delta rock & roll revivalists The True Strays combine 21st-century rhythm and blues with anthemic choruses and a healthy measure of the heat of the deep southern swamps. Steamy.

Zoe Davis
Zoe’s uniquely raw sound – fusing flute, guitar and vocal, as well as Irish and English lyrics – captures true Celtic soul.

???? TASTY TREATS ????

Boiling Wells Pizza Oven
We’re firing up our outdoor kitchen once again! Little ones can watch their pizzas cook in front of their eyes, whilst grownups can enjoy a glass of wine and freshly-made pizza whilst kicking back at the Amphitheatre stage.

Cafe Mulino Pop-up
If the pace of the Fair gets a little much, sit back and enjoy a wood-fired pizza and glass of red in the Mill House courtyard, from the team behind the renowned Café Mulino pop-up and acclaimed Cotham Hill restaurant Pasta Loco.

Eatchu
Eatchu bring a taste of the Far East to the streets of St Werbs with their delicious handmade gyoza and more authentic Japanese treats.

Farm BBQ
It just wouldn’t be a Farm Fair without firing up our famous BBQ – grab a no-nonsense burger, find a perch in the Paddock, and tuck in!

Good Food & Co.
Good Food & Co serves up gluten- and dairy-free street food encompassing flavours inspired by Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, African and Caribbean influences. The emphasis is on fresh flavours and a sustainable outlook, with free-range meat, vegan options, and farm-to-fork sourcing on the menu.

Marcy's Caribbean food
Caribbean classics from Marcy, featuring curry goat, jerk chicken, fried chicken, rice and peas, festival dumplings, bean curry, and salads.

Moist
Hummus specialists Moist started right here in St Werburghs with one man and a shopping trolley full of yummy vegan goodness! Today they serve up a range of different hummus varieties alongside authentic flatbread, with a delicious menu balancing innovation, intrigue and diversity in equal measure.

Smoky Tentacles
Head to Smoky Tentacles for festival classics: delicious wraps and baps, alongside freshly-made chai using whole spices and organic milk. These guys source everything locally, with an eye on a more sustainable future.

Street Treats Ice Cream
Catch the Street Treats tricycle around site for a taste of locally-produced, handmade and truly delicious Italian gelato.

Tuk-Tuk Cafe
Head to the Tuk-Tuk Café for your essential caffeine fix: small batch-roasted beans from Dusty Ape and organic milk from a local family-run dairy combine into truly delicious artisan coffees – all served from the back of a retro-style tuk-tuk!

Underdogs
Top-quality hotdogs made from prime pork shoulder smoked over applewood chippings. These guys are seriously sustainable, only using free-range meat and ingredients sourced from independent suppliers within 30 miles of Bristol. Non-meat eaters aren’t neglected either, with organic vegan hotdogs on the menu too.

???? HANDS-ON FUN ????

Penny's sleepy little piglets pretty much summing up how we all feel the day after the most successful Farm Fair yet...! 😴 A huge THANK YOU to all the performers, workshop leaders and volunteers who made yesterday possible; the teams from The Duke of York, St Werburghs., St Werburghs City Farm Cafe & The Farm; the caterers and stallholders who brought the street market to life; and to everyone who supported St Werburghs City Farm by partying with us yesterday! Every wristband bought, every pint drunk and every pizza eaten helps keep the Farm open and free to access all year round, helps run projects supporting the local community, and of course helps keep these little piggies well-fed and happy - it's a win-win! 🐷

Gates open in 15 minutes – make sure you get down early to make the most of the day! In the first hour alone we’ve got a drumming circle led by the African Sambistas in the main paddock, AcroYoga with Flying Monkey Yoga and JollyTots! Music and Singing Workshops over at Boiling Wells, and the lovely Lily Jean easing us gently into the day in the Farm Pub garden. Plus of course you’ll be able to browse three streets full of market stalls and nab yourself the most fabulous goodies before the crowds arrive! Can’t wait to see you all soon ✌️

The skies are (mostly) blue, the sun is (at least 50%) out, and we absolutely cannot wait to kick off another wonderful Farm Summer Fair in a few hours! We want everyone to have an awesome day so please remember that: - unfortunately we can only welcome assistance dogs on site so please leave your pooch at home (they probably wouldn’t enjoy it anyway!) 🐶 - car parking is only available for blue badge holders (but there’s loads of bike parking) 🚴 - we’ll have free drinking water on both sites so bring a refillable bottle and stay hydrated! 🚰
