2014 CarFest North and South dates announced

Chris Evans has confirmed the dates for the 2014 CarFest festivals.

CarFest North will take place from 1st-3rd August at Oulton Park in Cheshire, home to the famous motor racing circuit.

CarFest South will be held at Laverstoke Park Farm near Basingstoke, Hampshire, over the Bank Holiday weekend of 22nd-24th August.

Laverstoke is also known as the organic farm owned by former Formula One World Champion Jody Scheckter.

Tickets for both events will go on sale on Wednesday 13th November, with more tickets available for purchase in the spring.

Previous CarFest events have been a sell-out success, with more than 200,000 visitors, and have raised more than £2 million for BBC Children in Need.

The events provide a mix of fast cars, family-friendly festival food and live music.

The full artist line-up will be announced nearer the time, but Evans has confirmed it will include Erasure and Seasick Steve.
