This August bank holiday, the cream of the UK’s hospitality scene will descend on Duchess Farms in Hertfordshire for PX+ Festival, a new four-day feast of tastings, dinners, music and epicurean events. Highlights include a dinner series showcasing 12 guest chefs and 10 guest sommeliers, including Jackson Boxer (Brunswick House/St Leonards), Isa Bal (formerly of The Fat Duck) and a talk by the “World’s Best Female Chef” Clare Smyth. There will be a crop-circle table by Frenchie, a working bakery, an on-site butcher, artisan coffee, firepit breakfasts, champagne tastings, classes on foraging and fermentation, an “Experimental Barn” by the Experimental Cocktail Club, a music stage programmed by Island Records and, when you can’t take any more, a retreat for yoga, massages and meditation.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? The only snag is that this festival is for hospitality professionals only. But to celebrate the launch of PX+, the festival’s organisers are offering the first 10 HTSI readers to apply a special “Champagne Charlie” package for two that includes a menu of exclusive experiences throughout the bank holiday weekend, plus luxury glamping accommodation and seats at some tip-top dinners. 

The ticket price includes luxury glamping with a bottle of Charles Heidsieck on arrival, an access-all-areas pass, seats at the opening night dinner and daily breakfast
