Ever watch “Food Revolution” and wish that you could party with Jamie Oliver? If you’re in London this summer, perhaps you can. The chef has announced the very first Big Feastival, a fundraising event with live music, delicious eats and lots of workshops so you can learn how to cook like a pro.

For £75 you’ll hear bands like Soul II Soul, Norman Jay, New Young Pony Club, The Charlatans, The Mystery Jets and many more that have yet to be announced. For the price you’ll also get “five scoffs of food.” Not sure what a scoff is? Well, it’s British speak for basically five pig out sessions. (No offense to pigs intended.) If you don’t want the eats, there is a cheaper ticket. If you want those eats and more, there are higher up packages too where you get even more stuff.

Other events going on at The Big Feastival include The Big Kitchen (a place to learn the tricks of the trade from professional chefs), Little Dude’s Den (fun activities for kids), The Kitchen Garden (a place to learn how to create your own urban oasis), an Artisan Food Market, and tons more. To see the full list, go to the What’s On page on Jamie’s site.

The funds will go to support The Prince’s Trust and The Jamie Oliver Foundation, two organizations that help give young people a break by giving them the skills to secure employment, education and training.
