Angela Hartnett, Nathan Outlaw and Lisa Goodwin-Allen feeding festi-foodies 

Ten years ago, it all started with a guy and a guitar in the gardens of some of the south’s most loved staycation destinations… Wind forwards a decade and Smoked & Uncut has mushroomed into a pretty sizeable festival full of fun, food, music and glamping - hosted by a fantastic team from THE PIGs and Lime Wood hotel.

With music from the award-winning and internationally renowned KelisGabrielle and Razorlight as well as delicious feasts served up by celebrated and much-loved chef, Angela Hartnett, this stella line-up promises to be the ultimate celebration of summer. 



At Lime Wood's Smoked & Uncut there will be performances from Grammy-nominated R&B artist Kelis best known for her hit single “Milkshake”; plus British singer, song-writer Gabrielle who will bring to the party iconic tunes including “Dreams” and “Out of Reach”.  At THE PIG-at Bridge Place's Smoked & Uncut the one and only Razorlight will take to the stage best known for “Golden Touch” and “America”.  Preceding Razorlight is John Ilsley of Dire Straits fame.  In addition to the world class headliners, there will be a plethora of live bands and solo artists performing throughout each day. When the sun sets resident DJ Harriet Rose will take to the decks alongside guest DJs from the nostalgic girl bands All Saints and The Pussycat Dolls , all guaranteed to entertain partygoers into the small hours.


Feasting with Angela & Friends 

As with all things Lime Wood and PIG, we like to feed...  And if you want something even more epic to remember your festival day, head inside to the hotels' restaurants for a 4-course feasting menu with Angela Hartnett and Nathan Outlaw (Lime Wood) and Angela and Lisa Goodwin-Allen (THE PIG-at Bridge Place).  Angela, who needs little introduction, is one of the UK's most loved chefs and restaurateurs.  Nathan Outlaw, proud ambassador of all things Cornish, is famous for his two Michelin Star restaurants in Port Isaac - Outlaw's New Road and Outlaw's Fish Kitchen.  Lisa Goodwin-Allen is best known for being executive chef of the Michelin Star Northcote restaurant.  At the festivals each chef takes on a course so expect seasonal dishes that are not only full of flavour but also of their personalities.  In addition to Nathan and Lisa, Angela will be joined by Neil Borthwick, Head Chef of Soho's legendary The French House. Neil also happens to be Angela's husband... 


THE PIG’s Apprentice & James Golding 

Back by popular demand THE PIGs' Apprentice field kitchen will be serving up garden classics alongside Group Chef Director James Golding. The PIG apprentices will be operating under canvas to cook up a delicious 3-course menu using ingredients both from THE PIGs' kitchen gardens and local hero suppliers. Picture long, rustic sharing tables with mouth-watering seasonal dishes and quaffable wine. 


Festi-food and Drink 

2023 will see the most epic street food line-up Smoked & Uncut has ever seen, with something for absolutely everyone - from classic festi-food and tastes from around the globe, including hot veggie and vegan options.  Of course, these mouth-watering dishes need washing down with something special...  Fear not friends, we have drinks galore from our pals at Fever-Tree, Shepherd Neame's Beer Bar or Hambledon's double-decker bus with their quaffable Hampshire fizz. And for those after something non-alcoholic there’s Pentire’s botanical spirits, perfect for getting into the summer festival spirit with the rest of the rabble. 



As always, there is far more to Smoked & Uncut than just the music…With families in mind, The Den Kid’s Area is a dedicated space for the littlest festi-fans! This year we have partnered with Animate Arts Company who will be running interactive, creative and engaging workshops led by exceptional artists for kids all afternoon. Fill-up on feel good over in The Field Spa, where we’ll have three dreamy massages to choose from for the ultimate mid-festival pick-me-up. The Smoked & Uncut Shopping Bazaar is our pop up artisan market tent -with everything from glitter to glad rags, at The Bazaar you can expect to find some real gems from a host of wondrous makers and artisans, and British fashion house, RIXO, will be bringing their touring 1960s Routemaster double decker bus, so you can shop their latest summer collection - perfect for festi season.



Fully immerse yourself in the festival spirit and set up camp in your own bell tent for two, in a small but perfectly formed Glamping Village located in the fields next to the hotels. Snuggle into sumptuous beds and relax, with proper loos and shower cabins.  The glamping village opens at 4pm on the Friday with the weekend kicking off with a 3-course Italian-inspired field supper around the campfire from Angela and friends. All glampers also have access to free Yoga sessions and free test drives of the brand-new Grenadier 4x4.
