Asian street food, live music and fun for the whole family - and its for charity!

South Devon’s first Asian Street Food and Music Festival is coming to the South Hams, in support of Cancer Research UK and Childrens’ Hospice South West. 

The festival will take place on the bank holiday weekend, Sunday and Monday, 29 and 30 August, at Tidwell Farm, Landscove, near Totnes, and is promising to be an amazing event for all the family. 

Not only will there be amazing food and music on offer, but children are embraced with storytelling workshops, crafting and much more besides. 

In 2013, global fashion and hospitality guru couple Edwin Ho and Mike Jowett, who met in Singapore 30 years ago, created their beautiful home and boutique hotel venue in Landscove, near Totnes. Since then, they have connected with the local community and have continually found ways to give back.

The idea of organising a charity music and food festival had been in the pipeline for several years. The COVID-19 outbreak scuppered the original plan to launch the festival last summer. Instead, after Buckfastleigh Foodbank reached out to the couple, they decided to sell their own produce to support them, as well as Cancer Research, through their “Club Kitchen Garden” initiative.

Mike said: “Last summer, we were obviously affected by the pandemic as everyone. However, we were undeterred as we really wanted to make a difference to the lives of children and adults affected by cancer. 

“This is the main driver for us both and we wanted to do that in conjunction with celebrating three things close to our hearts — the street food of Asia, good music and bringing the local community together in a safe way.” 

Edwin added: “Being connected locally is so important to us. We grow our own produce here, which reduces our carbon footprint and enhances the food we are passionate about. We’ll be building an authentic Asian Street Food Market for the event, and have invited some of  the best Asian chefs to participate. 

“The music is also a huge part of this event, and we’ve pulled together some of the best local acts we could find. There’s such a rich tapestry of creative talent here, so we’re super keen to show that off too.”

 Sadie Horler will be performing  

The Food Festival will showcase the cuisines of Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand and Singapore, served up in the Asian Street Food Market by renowned UK-based vendors 5 Foot Way, Shiok’s Kitchen, Malaysian Kitchen Supper Club, Yuki’s Kitchen, Café Cloudywaaa and Taguchi-Ya Canteen.

ANRÁN Music Fest is proud to present a cross-genre (jazz, folk, classical) music programme of  internationally renowned songwriters, BBC Introducing favourites, dance floor-filling swing bands, and rising stars of the UK’s folk and acoustic scene across two stages. 

Charlie Dore and Littman 

Artists appearing across the weekend include legendary singer-songwriter Charlie Dore, troubadour Reg Meuross, as well as Neil Maya’s swing band All Jazzed Up, Sadie Horler, Sam Brockington, Brother Sea, Harbottle & Jonas and many more.  

The festival aims to ease some of the psychological impact of the pandemic. In addition to providing a safe, airy, family-friendly venue, the couple has tried to keep the event affordable with tickets priced from £10 for the Food Festival (which include food vouchers), £25 for single-day tickets, and whole-event tickets at £45 for adults and £10 for children.
