30th July - 1st August

Rock Oyster Festival is back at Dinham House this July (30th to August 1st) with an incredible line-up of music and food featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Nick Mulvey, Gilles Peterson, Dub Pistols, Soul II Soul, Jaguar Skills and Olivia Dean alongside pop-up restaurants and chefs demos hosted by Paul Ainsworth.

To mark its 10th anniversary, Rock Oyster has announced that it will be hosted by a different chef every year and this year Paul Ainsworth is at the helm, curating Rock Oyster’s food line-up with chefs like Valentine Warner, Josh Eggleton, Juliet Sear, Ping Coombes, Gill Meller and Michael Caines coming to cook with him by the Camel Estuary. A handful of Cornwall’s best loved restaurants will be popping up in The Chefs Tipis with Paul Ainsworth bringing The Mariners from Rock, Andi Tuck bringing the St Kew Inn, John Hooker bringing The Cornish Arms from Tavistock and Great British Menu favourites Jude Kereama, Guy Owen and Nick Beardshaw also hosting a Tipi throughout the weekend.

And for those who are keen to hone their own cooking skills, Rock Oyster has a packed programme of chefs demos and an open fire cooking stage featuring Steven Lamb, Romy Gill, Jack Bristow, Ben Quinn and many more.

Outdoor adventures and wellbeing activities are a big feature of this year’s festival with Standup paddleboarding, canoeing, archery, wild running, aerial yoga and spa treatments to choose from. Rock Oyster has always been a favourite with local families and there is plenty to keep kids happy this year too including forest school, a sea creature fashion show, circus skills, hula-hooping and storytelling at dusk.

We'll be there with our Offshore PIlsner and our beer sommelier, Ed Hughes, will be leading a beer food demo with a special guest. For ticket info, head to the Rock Oyster Website.
