From humble beginnings, Smoked & Uncut at THE PIG has grown up from acoustic Sunday sessions in the bar to a buzzing celebration of food and music!
THE PIG's headliner is John Illsley of Dire Straits and his band.
Nestled in the heart of the ancient New Forest, chill out under the trees and soak in the sounds of the summer whilst sipping on your favourite tipple…or two.
Classic festi-food is order of the day across the festival, but if you fancy tucking into something a little heartier why not try one of our pop up feasting tents!
Chef Angela Hartnett and some of her chef friends will be hosting long table, family-style 3 course feasts in The Field Kitchen pop up, and Chef Mark Hix will be paying homage to the British love of a classic Indian takeaway with his Ruby Murray House, 2 courses in a canteen-style pop up! Tickets can be bought in advance for pop up feasts, and must be bought in addition to a standard entry ticket.
The festival will last just that little bit longer this year, with music and festivities going on into the evening until 10pm.
There is no camping at Smoked & Uncut, but if you would like to make a weekend of it why not book a room with the hotel directly and get your festival tickets included in your room rate.
Due to the volume of guests expected, only HOTEL RESIDENTS will be able to park on site at the hotel.
DISABLED PARKING will be offered upon request, and TAXI DROP OFFS can be made at Brockenhurst College.
FESTIVAL GOERS will be able to park at Brockenhurst College, SO42 7ZE. The entrance is on North Road, on the left just before The Huntsman Pub if coming from Lyndhurst, or on the right after the pub from the train station.
There will be a complimentary shuttle service provided by several mini-buses and Land Rovers throughout the day.
You are not permitted to park on Beaulieu Road and will be refused entry to the festival if you do so. We will have security staff patrolling this area to help safeguard the forest and manage road traffic.
You will be sent a PARKING PERMIT in your pre-arrival email, to display in your vehicle’s dashboard.
If you are travelling from a distance to attend, THE PIG team will be able to suggest suitable accommodation in the local area.
