Come and join in our local & lovely festival

Returning for its second year, we are very excited to announce the Burley Food and Drink Festival is back! Due to the success of last year’s festival of over 12,000 attendees, we are pleased to announce that this year we will be celebrating all things local over the weekend.

Surrounded by beautiful woodland scenery, the festival celebrates and brings together high-quality local producers for a jam packed weekend of artisan food, drink, artistic creations and the very best local musicians.

Mystic Tree

Mystic Tree

Double double toil and trouble/Fire burn and cauldron bubble!   Burley is synonymous with witches and in acknowledgement to our mysterious ancestors and the newer religion of Wicca, we offer an area where you can really explore your spiritual side.   Get your Tarot Cards read or maybe try some crystal gazing, all with a liberal sprinkle of fairy dust, and see what the future might hold for you.   Fairy wings and broomsticks optional.

Festival Bars

Festival Bars

Revelling can be thirsty work! Panic ye not, we will provide a suitable amount of watering holes to keep you hydrated. You can choose from The Outside Inn (see what we did there?) or relax under the ‘Intreeducing’ stage and enjoy a little tipple in the INNside OUT bar. For those of you that like a juniper-based tipple, we have gin producers on site, with samples, and then some! We also welcome The Shandy Shack; for those that love a light and refreshing shandy. Or for the local Ale & Cider folk, you can wet your whistle with some craft ales & cider too. We welcome the creative cocktail wizards from Good2Know Hospitality this year, who will be offering a mix of refreshing cocktails to wash down in the beautiful sunshine.

Deer Street

Deer Street

Not to be confused with ‘Dear Street’, which is waaaaaay too expensive.  Deer Street is where you will find the finest street fodder Dorset and Hampshire has to offer.   There will be plenty of vegan and vegetarian options as well as hog roasts, Asian fusion stalls, artisan coffee, New Forest ice-creams, paella, mouth-watering pizza, churros; you can even get a steak and chips if that tickles your fancy.   Delish stuff on Deer Street.

Roots Veg Patch

Roots Veg Patch

There is no ignoring the rise of plant-based diets.  There are more vegetarians, vegans and flexitarians than ever and an increasing array of choice in the meat free arena.   At the Burley Festival we celebrate the healthy choices that this lifestyle can offer.   We aim to offer you some delicious meat free alternatives and generally showcase all things green!
