Flotsam and his family-run Circus have been performing at festivals up and down the country for over 10 years. Now they're bringing their circus fun to Bradford on Avon Food and Drink Festival, giving kids (and grown ups!) the chance to drop in and have a go at a variety of skills in a friendly space - no experience necessary! So if you've ever wanted to learn to juggle, polish your hula hooping skills or try your luck on the slackline head on over to the Mini Big Top and say hello! [br][br] Free to attend but any donation to Julia's House is always welcome.

Holt Morris

The Cotswold Morris side from nearby Holt, Wiltshire will be joining us this year. They started dancing in 1989 and perform a broad mix of Cotswold Morris styles, though many of their dances which are based on a liberal interpretation of the Fieldtown morris tradition. They have also borrowed generously from other Cotswold Morris sides. They will be dancing during the day and we can't wait to see them!

Artisan Food Market

We hand pick all of our Food and Drink Producers to keep the standard and interest high. We love supporting our country’s artisans who work extremely hard to produce delicious food and drink to the highest of standards. As much as possible, we make sure we don’t replicate the categories and in some cases, not at all. We want our producers to have the best chance to sell their products and we want our visitors to have lots of choice. In 2019 we had over 80 Artisans. Cheese, cakes, bread, butter, pastries, oils, pickles, eggs, fruit, vegetables, ice cream, charcuterie and more...much more!
