Travelling Feast to bring delicious food, good music and great times in new road show

The ‘ultimate food lovers road trip’ is coming to Cornwall this summer in the shape of Paul Ainsworth’s Travelling Feast. Chef and restaurateur Paul is bringing his passion for delicious food, and a desire to share great music and good times with friends and family, to stunning Cornish locations in a series of events throughout August, and tickets are on sale now. Stopping off at idyllic locations across Cornwall, including breath-taking clifftops, stunning beaches and exquisite country estates, the festival provides a unique chance to bed down under the stars in places you would never normally get the chance to experience.

Paul has invited some of Britain’s best-known chefs and their food trucks to join him on the road trip.  Headliners include Tom Kerridge’s Humble Pie Truck, Niall Keating’s Paradise Carriage, John Hooker’s Cornish Arms Airstream and James Martin’s Ice Cream Airstream as well as Paul’s very own Travelling Feast food truck.

Plus, the popular Alfresco Theatre’s Double Decker Bus will be serving dishes from award-winning chefs including Jason Atherton, Atul Kochhar and Rick Stein. Each destination will have its own unique mix of music, comedy, food, and family entertainment, ensuring no two days are the same. There will also be a wide range of street food trucks all hand-picked by Paul.

Also joining the convoy for one-off appearances will be some of Paul’s chef pals including Tom Kerridge, James Martin, Angela Hartnett and Richard Corrigan. Paul, chef proprietor of The Ainsworth Collection, said: “I’ve always wanted to go to a festival where the food takes centre stage, with great music and entertainment, topped off with a series of stunning locations in one of the most beautiful places in the world – my home, Cornwall.   “To be able to launch Travelling Feast with Chris and the Brand Events team – the best event operators in the business – is so exciting.  We’re all on a mission to create long-lasting, happy memories, as well as showcasing some of the region’s amazing producers and the country’s top chefs.

After the challenging year we’ve had, I think we all need some joy in our lives and hope Travelling Feast will do just that.”

Chris Hughes, chief executive of Brand Events, organisers of Pub in the Park said: “When Paul said, why don’t we get the best chefs you can find and put them in a convoy of food trucks, alongside some of the best bands I can find, throw in a brewery and a few artisan spirits companies to provide the booze and then find the most beautiful spots in Cornwall to set up camp, moving from beach to country estate, inviting the public to join us and gaze out over some of the most spectacular scenery and sunsets this country can offer – I just couldn’t refuse.” In addition to Michelin-starred chefs and street food legends, there will be terrific drink makers, including Cornwall’s very own Sharp’s Brewery and local producers, all hitting the road with Paul this August.
