Summer’s coming and the living is uneasy. The Big Chill offers lots to look forward to and tickets are already on sale for their sole UK festival of 2003. While the Enchanted Garden Dorset site enjoys a breather, this year all focus is on this 2nd annual trip to the idyllic Malvern Hills.
A mini-break offering staple Big Chillin’ with: friendly folk, gorgeous countryside, handpicked high profile / new live artists and DJs (ranging from downtempo to upbeat breaks, jazz, rare groove, house and hip hop, acoustic, lounging and classical – line up to be announced in April), French sausages in red wine, the Sanctuary stage, ducks, comedy, spoken word & poetry, multi-media, the pie van, night time arts trail, international cuisine, pub prices, cocktail bars, 24 hour café, Big Chill FM and a lot more!
Hitting 90? highs here last August spoilt us! But regardless of the heat, chilling will again be a breeze this year. The horizontally challenged will have their club tent and 24 hour café. Families get their kids tent and bouncy play things. Music lovers enjoy 24/7 entertainments, and camping areas cater for both peace lovers and party people.
The site boasts four lakes, thick woods and an arboretum set near Eastnor castle in the rolling hills of Herefordshire, minutes away from the M5/M50 junction north of Cheltenham / Gloucester.
