The bohemian Rock Oyster Festival takes place this weekend on the banks of the River Camel.

This smorgasbord of music, food, drink and entertainment is well known to be the little festival with a big heart.

This year's headline music acts are Caravana Sun and Dr Meaker. Caravana Sun's hybrid mix of smooth soul and gypsy-ska is both chilled and infectious, which will suit the sundowner 9.30pm slot on the St Moritz stage on Saturday night.

Dance band Dr Meaker is headlining the Big Top. This Bristol band is heavy on the drum and bass and resonates with soul for an all out party from 10.20 pm on Saturday.

Woodland skills and circus tricks form part of the entertainment and, as to be expected, there's a significant focus on local food and drink.

Porthilly oysters, grown just two hundred yards down the river, feature highly alongside the Padstow Brewing ales and cider bar, a wood fired pizza and Argentinian barbecue.

Organiser Charlie Anderson said: “The idea is that Rock Oyster Festival is a great party, a proper underground festival, a safe place to bring your kids or your mother and definitely not a rip off."
