FAMOUS musicians and chefs are set to appear at a new festival at Jimmy's Farm.

Jimmy Doherty will open his farm for a brand new festival of music and food called Harvest at Jimmy's.

The two-day festival, at the farm in Wherstead, near Ipswich, will feature musicians Athlete, Jose Gonzalez, Mercury-Prize winning Badly Drawn Boy as well as folk musician Seth Lakeman.

The festival will also showcase sustainable and freshly-made food and master class cooking demonstrations from the likes of James Martin, James Wong and Gina D'Acampo. Jamie Oliver's very own Fifteen Restaurant will be taking over the farm's barn for the duration of the festival - providing an interactive Jamie Oliver experience for visitors.

Jimmy said: “This is a very special festival which we hope will be the first of many. To have some of the country's finest chefs like James Martin, Gennaro Contaldo and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen cooking for us will be a real treat and will showcase our locally sourced food at its best.”
