Not long to go until the start of the 3 day Tiverton hot air balloon, music and food festival 2014. Now in it’s fourth consecutive year and taking place at Tiverton in the heart of Devon, is one of the most interesting small summer festivals around. A spring board for top new talent, combining inspiring, impressive live music acts, art and creative workshops, alternative world cup football and lots of having fun. The festival has a quiet, spacious family camping area just a short walk away from the main area with clean showers and lavatories, and this year there’s a VIP camping area with pre erected tents just a stone throw away from all the action.
There are family events in the Chai Chapel where you can participate in one of the many drum workshops taking place all weekend, and there’s also alearning dome experience, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) workshop and an alternative world cup football event for all ages. In addition to live music from over 40 acts on 2 stages, there are also numerous ‘hot air balloon events’ including the famous mass balloon ascents where over 35 hot air balloons fill up the skies over Devon, which offers an experience not to be missed. A large celebration in Devon food and drink is expected with a variety of delicious dishes set to tantalise all taste buds. The Tiverton Food Festival aims to celebrate Devon as a vibrant culinary destination showcasing the food, real ale and cider culture of the region.
