Get Down and Delicious at Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival

Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival 1st – 3rd June


It’s three days of moreish cuisine and delicious melody-making in one of the South Hams’ prettiest market towns.

Another exciting line-up of musical artists are preparing to descend upon the town square for Kingsbridge’s annual food and music festival…

Friday’s musical maestros include funk band The Mocktails, 8-piece alternative reggae group Backbeat Soundsystem, and rhythm ‘n’ blues-fuelled quartet True Strays.

On Saturday, the bandstand welcomes Phil & Mahrey Bertoud’s Kingsbridge Buskers, singer-songwriter Chris Ostler, and indie folk-rock outfit Huw Eddy & The Carnival.

Sunday’s line-up includes The Salcombe Gospel Choir and the multi-talented Rodney Branigan who will help play out the festival.

Expect to be tempted by the colourful avenue of sizzling food stalls and quenched by local pop-up bars.

The festival champions sustainability, and its food and drink providers have committed to using compostable packaging.  To create less waste, the festival is trialling compostable pint glasses, which will be taken to be composted at a local farm, returning the goodness to the soil.

Throughout the weekend the Kids Zone will be running a range of activities and taster sessions, anything from bushcraft to face painting.

Come join the merry gathering on the water’s edge and party long into the night at this year’s Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival.

Have a look at some of our gorgeous holiday cottages in Kingsbridge, the heart of the sunny South Hams.

Nestled right on the bank of the Kingsbridge estuary, Cliff Crest is a magnificent waterside property which sleeps 6 guests. Its immaculate living room, modern kitchen, dining area, bedrooms and large terrace all enjoy beautiful views of the water. Dine al fresco with a glass on wine in hand whilst enjoying the views of the wildlife and activity on the water. Cliff Crest is just a short stroll from Kingsbridge town centre, making it a great base for the Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival.


Want to be right amongst the action? 1 The Malt is a contemporary ground floor apartment (sleeps 4) opposite the market square. Dance all day and well into the night with the knowledge that your comfy bed is just a few steps away from the festival.

Western Knowle (sleeps 8), a handsome Georgian town house, can be found at the top of Kingsbridge’s bustling Fore Street – a short walk from the festival. With well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings, large shuttered windows and a charming, south facing walled garden, the property is packed full of character. Western Knowle is also one of our dog-friendly cottages.
