Napoleon Grills to sponsor Kitchen Stage at Camp Carfest 2021


Napoleon Grills; the internationally renowned barbecue and outdoor kitchen specialist, will sponsor the Kitchen Stage at Camp CarFest North & South 2021. 


CarFest, founded by Radio presenter Chris Evans in 2012, is the UK’s greatest family festival, hosting an extravagant celebration of cars, music and food, all in aid of raising money for UK children’s charities.


As a result of the pandemic, both festivals were postponed in 2020, making the coming year even more important. Evans, determined to not only mark the event’s 10th birthday, but to continue to raise funds for the event’s charity partners, has worked with the CarFest team to develop Camp CarFest, a Covid-compliant, socially distanced version of CarFest for 2021. In addition to Camp CarFest, 2021 will also see a brand new festival with Retro CarFest taking place at Bicester Heritage in June 2021. All three festivals will offer a safe but great experience that fans have come to know and love over the years. 


RETRO CarFest will be held at Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire from 18th 20th June 2021 


Camp CarFest North will be held at Bolesworth Estate from 23rd – 25th July 2021 


Camp CarFest South will be held at Laverstoke Park Farm from 27th – 29th August 2021 


“Camp CarFest is the ideal alliance for Napoleon Grills in terms of profile, scale and values, joining them for 2021 is incredibly exciting. You can cook anything and everything on our range of premium grills and outdoor kitchens, so to demonstrate this to a dedicated foodie audience, with some of the best celebrity and Michelin-starred chefs in the UK, is a dream scenario for us.” Commented Martin Sobey, National Sales Manager for Napoleon Grills (UK). 


Napoleon is the first barbecue brand to sponsor the Kitchen Stage for the iconic annual festival.  The on-stage chef line-up for 2021 includes household names such as José Pizarro, Melissa Hemsley, James Martin and Matt Tebutt. Napoleon will also operate an on-site exhibition and retail space over both weekends. 


Anjna Raheja, Show Director for Camp CarFest said “After an incredibly disappointing and difficult year for all, we are delighted to bring Camp CarFest back for 2021. Our charity partners are more in need than ever, and we’ve taken every measure to make sure the shows are safe and jam-packed with great experiences for all those who missed out this year. 


We are thrilled to introduce Napoleon to the Camp CarFest audience as our official Kitchen Stage sponsor. Much like any home, the Kitchen (stage) has become the heart of the festival, and we’re confident that Napoleon will greatly appeal to the many keen amateur cooks and professional chefs who attend and host every year.” 


Camp CarFest donates 20% of ticket sales directly to its UK children’s charity partners: BBC Children in Need, Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, Rainbow Trust, Starlight Children’s Foundation and Teenage Cancer Trust each year. In order to ensure social distancing, capacity has been restricted and the amount of space has been increased. Multiple screens and viewing pods will also be erected across the sites to ensure a safe distance between attendees. 


Tickets for Camp CarFest will go on sale from 8am on Thursday 5th November 2020.
