Cock & Bull is a small festival with a big vision. Since it began in 2011 it has become a fixed date in many peoples' calendar, bringing likeminded folk together over the last six years to celebrate everything to do with Jamie’s Farm, whilst raising some incredibly important funds in the process. When we work with our beneficiaries, our approach is built on Farming, Family and Therapy, and our festival seeks to mirror this approach for our wider network of supporters. Farming is reflected in the stunning location, the infrastructure, animals and farmyard antics such as the Farmer’s Olympics. By sharing good food, eating together in the food barn and bringing together supporters, corporate partners and local neighbours we celebrate being part of a family. And finally the quiet healing spaces offer time for reflection and renewal, mirroring our focus on therapy.

2016 was our best yet, raising a staggering £55,000 over one weekend that saw a thousand people come together in the sunshine, and all for Jamie’s Farm. Its success is a combination of peoples’ time and commitment, the generosity of corporate partners such as Benugo and Bath Marquees, and the loyalty of those who make Cock & Bull so lovable – from the Healing Space crew to the army of volunteers who make it run each year.

In the midst of an extremely exciting period of expansion for the charity as a whole, we have decided to have a rest year in 2017, before coming back, refreshed and rejuvenated, in 2018. Please rest assured we will definitely be back - the weekend is too precious to so many of us and we have high hopes for its future. We will shortly be announcing the date of Cock & Bull 2018 so watch this space.
