The re­gion will again come alive with music, art and lo­cal pro­duce for the an­nual Hamp­ton Fes­ti­val this May

Highfields' Own - - COMMUNITY -

This May the beau­ti­ful Hamp­ton area will fill with de­li­cious lo­cal pro­duce, cook­ing demon­stra­tions, live music, celebrity chefs and other de­lights from the rich re­gion we call home.

The an­nual Hamp­ton Fes­ti­val, held Sun­day, May 21, is a truly mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence to try in your own back­yard.

With events in the lead up as well as a full day’s pro­gram on the Sun­day, there is some­thing to en­gage every­one.

Visit the Hamp­ton Art Ex­hi­bi­tion, take a seat in one of the demon­stra­tion tents and watch some of the best chefs in the busi­ness share their se­crets, or sit and lis­ten to live music as you sam­ple the best pro­duce from the Dar­ling Downs and re­gion.

Cook­ing demon­stra­tions are sched­uled through­out the day at the fes­ti­val, with this year’s head­line an­nounced as Paul West of River Cot­tage Aus­tralia fame.

In the Aus­tralian show, adapted from the Bri­tish flag­ship pro­gram of the same name, for­mer chef Paul and his fam­ily at­tempt to live in a self suf­fi­cient man­ner on a small hobby farm, show­cas­ing lo­cal pro­duce and farm­ing tech­niques.

Catch this sus­tain­able farm­ing and or­ganic food guru’s demon­stra­tions on Sun­day, May 21.

The Hamp­ton Art Ex­hi­bi­tion will also be one not to miss, run­ning across both Satur­day and Sun­day.

Satur­day sees the open­ing and pre­view, run­ning from 2.30pm to 5pm, while on Sun­day the ex­hi­bi­tion will be open for the day from 9.30am to 4pm.

Tick­ets are cur­rently avail­able for pur­chase on­line and more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing times of ac­tiv­i­ties, trans­port options as well as cook­ing demon­stra­tions and work­shops can be found at the web­site www.hamp­ton­fes­ti­val.com.
