2017 Dates coming soon!



We've all seen Adam Richman scoff down a burger half the size of a house, or eat a pizza most of us would feel sick just looking at. Here is your chance to take Food on... in our Men vs Food Challenges. This is a part of the festival that has become hugely popular... so for 2015 its back and bigger, and badder than before!!

Previous challengers downed a chilli vodka shot, then scoffed a footlong chilli sausage, smash and gravy followed by a pallete cleansing chilli sorbet!! Oh, with a half pint of cider too!

Entry is on a first come first served basis on the day – head to the Challenge stage to sign up & if your are brave (or crazy enough) to want to take part make sure you sign up fast, this is hugely popular & gets full fast!!

New for 2016 - Men vs Meat 606 Sausage & Cider challenge. Taking place at 12.30pm each day on the Challenge Stage. How many inches of sausage can you eat followed by a pint of cider in 6 mins 6 secs. Sign up on the day by seeing Tim at the challenge stage and giving him a fiver for the local charity that we supporting that weekend.
