We've teamed up with Valley Fest to offer three lucky winners a pair of tickets to the festival taking place in Chew Valley

Valley Fest, the best-tasting music festival in the South West, has a punchy programme: Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Razorlight and Tom Odell are headlining. The music festival, which takes place between August 2-4 2019 alongside Chew Valley Lake, also showcases the region's finest produce. From charcuterie to cheddars and ciders to sausages, it's hedge-to-hedge Somerset style and sizzle.

Now in its fifth year, Valley Fest's line-up has always included some big names as well as plenty of rising stars. And the consistently biggest crowd pleaser of all is the view. Chew Valley Lake provides the sparkling backdrop that is edged by the rolling Mendip hills.

This year Nubiyan Twist, Stealing Sheep, Henge, Dutty Moonshine Big Band, The Magic Numbers and Honeyfeet are on the bill. Valley Fest has got a much bigger DJ line up this year. Norman Jay MBE, will be serving up some good times. There will also be a DJ set from Leftfield plus The Nextmen are playing too.

And the consistently biggest crowd pleaser of all: the view. Part of Valley Fest's appeal is the lazy lakeside vibe. And artists which perfectly cater to that include Ishmael Ensemble and Three Cane Whale, whose debut album was chosen by Cerys Matthews as one of her Top Five Modern Folk Albums.

The region's culinary heroes and heroines will be cooking up a storm day and night in the form of feasts. Owner of the Michelin-starred Pony and Trap, Josh Eggleton, together with Rob Howell, Head Chef of Root, which recently won a Bib Gourmand award are at the helm on Saturday.

Regionally-sourced tapas will be served all day in tipis by The Monmouth Table, run by Annie Coplestone and Carlotta Paolieri. Annie has worked for Moro, River Cottage and River Café. Expect treats, beats and plenty to eat! There will be workshops galore, cooking demonstrations plus more street food than you can shake a stick at. In short there's something to tickle everyone's taste buds.

Weleda will be offering Skin Food facials. Yoga, massage, meditation, mindfulness, reiki and singing workshops are available to help rejuvenate and refresh. Plus talks on body confidence.

The event is perfect for food lovers, first-time festival goers, plus young and maturing families. No long treks across site and plenty of activities for everyone. Expect hedge-to-hedge Somerset sparkle and plenty of nonsense with a spectacular soundtrack.

This is West Country wildness at its best.
