As part of the Lewes OctoberFeast 2013 we will be hosting a family camping feast here at The Secret Campsite in Sussex. The event will be hosted by Guyrope Gourmet, Josh Sutton who has just released his book Guyrope Gourmet, through Punk Publishing, publishers of  Cool Camping, Wild Swimming and Tiny Campsites.

The event starts at 12 on Saturday 5th October with Josh demonstrating and cooking a camfire feast crafted using locally sourced ingredients from the Lewes area. The evening will include gourmet feasting and demonstrations accompanied by music and some campfire talk as well as a chance to talk with Josh about your own campfire cooking experiments.  Following a night under canvas campers will be treated to a sumptuous breakfast prior to leaving by 11:30am

Dishes will include an All day oxtail stew cooked over the open fire, a white fish tagine,  trout cooked in maize leaves, a vegetable biriani, and hopefully a shell fish dish.

The campsite will be closed for the day and night to non October Feasters and tickets for the event, which includes the evenings feast, breakfast the following morning, as well as a night under canvas  on one of our large and secluded camping pitches in our wildlife rich camping meadow are available online here by ringing The Secret Campsite on 01273 401 100 or emailing Tim
