CarFest gets set for 2017

Tickets for next summer’s pair of fun-fuelled CarFest family festivals will go on sale on Thursday morning (10 November) during Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2.

First introduced by Evans in 2012, CarFests feature a medley of great cars, fabulous food, live music plus an intoxicating mix of entertainment to enthrall and inspire all ages. To date the 10 previous sell-out extravaganzas have provided unrivalled entertainment for more than 500,000 festival-goers and raised many millions of pounds for BBC Children in Need.

Building on that success, in 2017 CarFest North will return to Bolesworth in Cheshire from 28-30 July with CarFest South remaining at its spiritual home of Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire over the 25-27 August Bank Holiday weekend.

The first tranche of tickets for both festivals will go on sale at 8am on Thursday morning and are expected to sell-out swiftly. Those missing out, however, will be given a second chance when the remaining 25% of tickets are made available in the spring.
