Be sure to check out The Bistro Gardens, it is a space within the festival that is a chill out zone, it has its own burger bar and its own unique eatery; The 40 Winks cafe, its the place to be undercover if it gets drizzly or to tune into your taste buds while sheltering under a canopy from the hot sun!
The Burger Van is open from mid morning serving the standard fry up in a good bread bun; eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, onions in various combinations. How do you like yours?

Forty Winks Cafe will be serving ‘to-go’ meals wraps and salads in eco boxes a delightful home made soup and have a couple of main dishes with a veggie options. In the evenings the menu expands to include sizzling steaks, a delicious hallumi salad and a veggie pasta.

The Forty Winks also serves freshly ground coffee at lunch and a range of totally tasty deserts including an almost legendary vegetarian chocolate fruitcake made without any refined sugar, it does have a reputation for serving delicious hot chocolate so be mindful to look for it, its worth taking time out to relax and find a seat to savour the moment.  
This year it has a soap box added so you may be treated to a spoken word, someone’s opinion or a delightful piece of song .. who knows but that’s the exciting part ! and if you are interested, it may be you who feels the urge to entertain.. so get writing, planning and lets do it!
