Valley Fest is the best-tasting music festival in the South West and showcases the region's finest produce - from charcuterie to cheddars, ciders to sausages.

The event will be held from August 2-4 amid the stunning backdrop of Chew Valley Lake.

Spread across a gently-sloping meadow, the event is perfect for food lovers, first-time festival goers and both young and maturing families.

This year will see DJ sets from Basement Jaxx and Leftfield as well as performances from Razorlight and Tom Odell.
