Farm Fest will return to Harlow for the fifth year running this summer and is set to welcome local musicians to the stage in an event aiming to bring the community together.

Taking to the stage will be the young musicians of Harlow Rock School, as well as Ian Treherne, Electric Catnip and the Valaitis brothers.

For those looking to be creative there will be henna art, face-painting, jewellery making, rock painting headdress making workshops and old-fashioned games.

There is plenty to choose from when it comes to food with a barbeque with meat sourced from the local Churchgate Sausage Shop.

Vegetarian options will also be available and the farm kitchen will be serving up a range of vegan food, including curry and chilli using vegetables grown at the farm.

If you’re looking to take some fresh produce home The Farm Shop will be selling a range of jams, oils, teas, herbs and beauty products – all made from organic produce grown at the farm.

The event will run from noon until 6pm, but that doesn’t mean the celebrations are over, with an after party due to be being held at Phoenix Live from 7pm.

Organiser Elliot Wollen said: “We are looking forward to our fifth ever Farm Fest.

“Last year was our busiest year ever and we hope to engage the local community again with a lovely day out to bring families and friends together in a beautiful environment.

“We have a lot to celebrate as our town is thriving and we feel we have our part to play by promoting environmental sustainability, organic food growing and giving a chance to local musicians and people wanting to have a fun day out.”

All proceeds raised will go towards furthering the work of the community farm, including its work with local schools, community groups and providing fresh produce to homeless charity Streets 2 Homes.

Farm Fest is free and takes place on Saturday, August 11, from noon until 6pm at Herts & Essex Community Farm in Farm Croft, Harlow, CM20 1SE.

Guests are encouraged to arrive by foot or public transport as there is only limited parking available at the nearby St Thomas More Church on Hodings Road.

The after party will take place at Phoenix Live, in the former TSB building, at 15-17 West Gate, Harlow.
