|Sausage Eating Competition|
A weekend full of great chefs, bakers and writers, who are guaranteed to tell you a couple of stories whilst cooking up something delicious. There is also one of my heroes the amazing DJ BBQ, his down to earth style of BBQ’ing really has been an inspiration to TheBBQist, many of the BBQ’s here at BBQist HQ are courtesy of or inspired by DJ BBQ. Of course who could forget the Sausage Eating Competition, can you gobble it in one !
The Garden Stage
Chilled out afternoon sitting in the sun, with a glass of beer whilst the children are over at the Kids Zone, well this is definitely where you are going to want to pitch yourself. Some of the coolest child out artists around at the moment all playing in lovely surroundings.

So with the main areas covered for the adults, what about the kids? How are you going to keep them amused !
