Set against a backdrop of the rolling Mendip Hills and quintessentially English views of this undiscovered part of Somerset, was the Vintage Bar Box® horsebox at THE PIG-near Bath for their annual Smoked & Uncut festival.

Not your average English festival, it was more glamour than grunge, with a line-up of handpicked classic and contemporary artists, home-made street food, local ales and the odd cocktail.

For the ultimate festival experience, guests spent the weekend under canvas in their very own luxury bell-tent and feast with Chef Angela Hartnett, whilst making the most of the festival vibes and spectacular surroundings.

Snuggled into proper beds with luxury loos and hot showers, guests relaxed in a small but perfectly formed tented glamping village in the fields by the hotel. Leaving guests to focus on the important things – food, wine and music!

Chef Angela Hartnett kick started their weekend with her signature festival feast – sundowners were served around the campfire followed by 4 courses of Italian sharing classics (with wine on tap), with acoustic chilled out tunes and laid back beats into the early hours!

Saturday morning delivered a rustic outdoor campfire breakfast cooked and served by the chefs – serious bacon and sausage sandwiches, home-made granola and pots of fresh coffee before the festival fun begun.

With the festival in full swing and the band line-up under way, guests ample choice from the food stalls with a street food twist, washing it down with a choice of their favourite tipples from craft ales to cocktails. The Vintage Bar Box® luxury converted horsebox bar was on dry hire in bespoke Hambledon branded signage to serve flutes of their award-winning English fizz.

The Smokey Bloody Mary and ‘hangover breakfast’ on the Sunday was the perfect start to another day of festival fever…

Raising a glass in the sunshine, we made the most of the summer by soaking up the sun outdoors, making wonderful memories with friends.
