Supplement your hunger with a pig roast or the famous ‘René BBQ’.

Each year the festival is FREE for all to enjoy. Throughout the week Café René help raise money through various fundraising activities for a well deserving cause to be announced, last year the sum raised was £2796.15 for Macmillan Cancer Support and we are always keen to better our fundraising efforts year on year so please do bring some sheckles for the charity buckets and help us support our chosen charity Macmillan Cancer Support.
