Asparafest to welcome Wurzels

LEGENDARY music group The Wurzels will be headlining the music stages at this year’s popular Asparafest.

The increasingly popular event takes place at Ashdown Farm in Badsey today (Saturday) and Sunday (May 31) with a host of fun for all the family.

The 70s singing sensations The Wurzels will be sharing their fun vibe and classic country music including well loved family favourites from everyone’s childhood.

Blackbeard’s Tea Party from York, named ‘the’ band to see at Glastonbury 2014, will also be performing as well as Moulettes – nominated for best band by the Alternative Brit Awards.

Capturing the Moulettes is a huge coup for Asparafest as the group will be performing at legendary Summer festivals Bestival and Glastonbury.

CBeebies ‘I Can Cook’ star Katy Ashworth will be cooking up a storm for the kids on Saturday (May 30).

Keeping with the food theme Easy Peasy cookery will also be attending offering hands on cooking from scratch lessons with healthy food for children and adults.

And of course no Asparafest would be complete without an appearance from the famous Gras and UK Asparagus chef Felice Tocchini will share some gourmet tips.

With plenty of cooking workshops, street dancing, archery, pony rides and storytelling stalls Asparafest is offering a fantastic family weekend.

“This year’s music line-up is another great one, with some well loved names from the Brit festival circuit,” said organiser Tash Daly.

“We have everything from folk singing to morris dancing, chefs, food, drink and everything in between.

“Asparafest is growing each year – we put it down to the wonder of Worcestershire asparagus,” she added.

Tickets are £6 (free for under 10s), visit www.asparafest.co.uk for a full line up and to buy tickets.
