A charity festival celebrating Asian street food and local live music, Anram Festival has something for everyone. 

ANRÁN FEST is back!

We’ve been overwhelmed by the amazing response to our first mini music and food festival held at the farm last year. We learned a lot and appreciate all the constructive feedback from those who attended.

We are especially grateful for those who have generously supported our two adopted charities with their time and donations. This year, we are extending our support to charities who help children and young people in need. This will include Children With Cancer UK and Children’s Hospice South West, which provide support for terminally ill children, as well as Veterans with Dogs, a war veterans charity that provides mental health support for service personnel who have returned from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many of us struggle with mental health challenges in these difficult times. We want to shine the spotlight on this at ANRAN Fest. Whatever we can do to better understand and raise awareness of the issues, the more we can begin to fix them.

What to expect at this year’s ANRÁN FEST

This year’s event will follow a slightly different format.

MUSIC

Join Julian Lloyd Webber at the lakeside for a talk and recital with the famous cellist, Jiaxin Lloyd Webber and pianist, Di Xiao. Julian will share highlights about his illustrious career as a cellist, broadcaster and educator. He will also host a supper club.

Watch the sun go down by the lakeside as Torbay Symphony Orchestra performs Mozart piano concerto and Beethoven Symphony no. 7 with a piano recital from pianist Di Xiao

Groove with ABBA, Queen and Shirley Bassey tribute bands in a fun evening of eating, drinking and dancing in THE COW SHED.

Head to THE COW SHED for foot-tapping Gsypsy and Swing Jazz to Salsa and Samba and chill out with some fantastic pub bands in THE HAY BARN.

FOOD

The Asian Street Food will again be a big part of the event. It has been reinvented as a Singapore-style Satay Club, featuring some of the best BBQs from around Southeast Asia.

Whet your appetite with Thai street fare, Vietnamese bahn mi sandwiches, Korean burrito-style gimbap and ‘Taste of Singapore and Malaysia’ set lunches and dinners. There will be wine tastings, cooking and cocktail demos.

SPECIAL DAYS

There will be a dedicated Children and Family Day, with everyone invited to bring their four-legged friends to the lake for fun and games. Kids can take part in art and craft activities organised by Skylarks and Woodpeckers.

War veterans at the Doggie Day event in collaboration with The Labrador Rescue Trust will be bringing supporters from around the country.

We do hope you can attend and help contribute to these great causes.

Looking forward to seeing you at the festival.

Edwin and Mike
