Chris Evans announces CarFest North's Return To Oulton in 2014

Friday, November 08 2013

Chris Evans has confirmed that CarFest North will return to Oulton Park next August (1-3) after this year's events raised two million pounds for Children in Need!

Evans announced to listeners of his BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show that tickets to next year's unique fundraising event at the Cheshire circuit will go on sale from next Wednesday (13 November) at 7am, coinciding with BBC Children in Need Week. Extra tickets will become available in the Spring too, so don't worry if you can't commit to the dates just yet.

Although CarFest's history stretches only as far back as 2012, the hugely successful sell-out events have already developed a reputation as one of the most family-friendly festivals of the summer. Festival-goers are treated to an eclectic selection of evocative cars, diverse cuisine and live music, offering families an unparalleled wealth of entertainment in a welcoming environment.

Full details of the musical and automotive entertainment present will be announced much closer to the time, but it has already been announced that Erasure and Seasick Steve will both perform live at the event.

"It's onwards and upwards for CarFest," said Evans. "To date we've had some absolutely brilliant fun and raised more than two million pounds for BBC Children in Need. How could we not do it all over again in 2014? I promise you that CarFest will be even bigger and even more fun than ever before. Don't ask me how we're going to top what we've already achieved but, believe me, we will. There'll be more great bands, more fantastic cars, more fabulous food, more unbelievable air displays, more terrific sideshows… more of everything, in fact. It gets me all excited just talking about - I already can't wait for the gates to open at Oulton Park next August. I just want to be there now!"
