Beetle Juice Cocktail Bar
The Beetle Juice tale started in 2012 in Farnham, Surrey, when brothers Julian and Jonny, and our friend Harry, had the idea of converting a 1970’s VW van into a cocktail bar to ‘take the party to the people’. We always threw big parties at our house and thought we were pretty good at it. As we couldn't afford property to open our own bar we decided to create a pop-up that was brought to people.
Since we started 5 years ago we've grown and built a fleet of 15 vans that cover the UK doing a variety of different events from small festivals with a few thousand to big festivals of 100,000 people +. We make all our cocktails fresh offering something different from the big units that pump out beer and wine..

Cara Gorda Cantina - Meditertanean Cuisine
The Cantina idea was born out of my passion for cooking and meeting new people, along with my love of beautiful Turkish spices and the simplicity of eating out of the box.
The food was inspired by a Turkish holiday that awakened my taste buds, I found the food fresh, healthy, spicy and amazingly tasty. Hence our search to find the wonderful rich spices, which now come direct from our Spice Artisan in Turkey.
The Cantina was originally a famous film star in her own right! She was in the Batman films “The Black Knight” and “The Black Knight Rises” as the Police Swat van, if you google ‘Batman with Swat van’ you will see her in her previous black uniform!
But we think she looks far prettier in her new bright zingy happy yellow uniform.
The name “CARA GORDA CANTINA” meaning fat face canteen in Spanish was named after a friend, whose nick name after having mumps is Fat Face! He was originally going to be a partner in the business but sadly due to personal reasons it didn’t quite happen. But we are happy to say that he is still part of our wonderful, fun loving team. For obvious reasons we couldn’t use the name ‘Fat Face’ in English so we tweeked it slightly!!
AND FINALLY ME
I’m the cheeky chappie originally from Cheshire, who has lived in Surrey ever since meeting my amazing wife. I will be the one who is always (well nearly always!) grinning like a Cheshire cat and full of fun, although I do have a serious side when the occasion requires it of me. My Team, my Cantina and I look forward to serving you soon.

I have meet fantastic people at Weyfest from all different walks of life, all with a story to tell. I am really looking forward to being part of Weyfest again this year and seeing you all again.
Most of you will know me for my novelty felt slippers, don't worry they will be with me again this year, I also have a new exciting collection of clothes not seen before at Weyfest.

Crêpes are a truly native, traditional French street food. A simple concept, almost as old as the streets themselves. Made with simple ingredients, milk, eggs and flour. These thin, crispy pancakes are the tastiest among the french street fares. We cook our crêpes to order (rather than reheat from a pile cooked earlier) and we make them thin (nothing worse than a gummy, undercooked crêpe!).
Crêpes and galettes are the perfect 'theatre food'. People enjoy watching their food being made, our staff are well trained in the art of crêpe making and the public gather round to watch, mesmerised at their skill. A crêpe can contain a variety of fillings; it can be served as both a main meal and a dessert.
Our crêpes are made from white wheat, flour milled from soft English varieties and our gallettes are made from buckwheat flour, stone-ground, naturally gluten and wheat free.
❤Our sugar, bananas and drinks are all fair-trade
❤We use west country cheddar, ham & bacon.
❤Our fruit,herbs and salads are sourced locally for our crêpe fillings

An open-air pizzeria with a groovy orange-coloured wood-fired oven at its heart, The Gorilla Kitchen is based in the beautiful Sussex Downs.
Fresh & authentic ingredients. Inventive and open-minded, and always looking to find great flavour combinations. Authentic ingredients are sourced from artisan producers in Calabria in Italy and from the Cote d’Azur in France, from makers and growers in the south of England and even from our own garden at Gorilla HQ.
The Gorilla Kitchen pops up at food festivals, sports events and music festivals and is available to cater for your family or corporate gatherings and wild celebrations.
Foodie soul-mates, Robert and Fiona set up The Gorilla Kitchen in the summer of 2014. The smell of oregano and garlic heavy in the summer air, “let’s take the kitchen outside” they said. And so the delights of the al-fresco kitchen were shared with a growing band of foodie followers. The Gorilla Kitchen is inspired by the food of Robert’s childhood. With a mother from Calabria in the far south of Italy and a father from Perugia in the beautiful hills of Umbria in central Italy, Robert was actually born and raised in France on the Cote d’Azur – a classically trained chef in the French tradition but with his heart in the simple natural flavours of the Mediterranean.
