Josh-EggletonCelebrity Chefs

After its success last year, The celebrity chef tent will be returning to Backwell Festival, where Michelin star chefs Josh Eggleton and Sam Moody will give live cookery demonstrations, showcasing the skills and secrets behind their signature dishes.

Backwell Festival is delighted to welcome two of the South West’s best culinary experts into the festival kitchen.  Josh Eggleton recently competed on BBC 2’s Great British Menu, and Sam Moody, awarded a Michelin star in 2012, is well known for championing the fantastic flavours of simple, natural food.


Started in 2009, Backwell festival was set up by the Backwell Junior School PTA to raise money for the school. The festival has constantly grown and evolved and is now run independently, on a not for profit basis, by a group of media, event and music professionals who live locally in Bristol. Backwell Festival donates a percentage of its profit to a local and international causes.

We are grateful to the organisers of the festival for picking the Bhopal Medical Appeal as their international charity, and hope that this year is another great success for the festival team.

We believe Dow must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
