Harvest at Jimmy's announces line up for 2011 festival

Eliza Doolittle and Richard Corrigan will headline Harvest at Jimmy's 2011, taking place in Suffolk.

It will be the third year the festival of food and music has been hosted at Jimmy Doherty's farm near Ipswich.

DJs Gilles Peterson and Huw Stephens will also perform, and there will be cooking demonstrations from Mary Berry, Monty & Sarah Don and Gennaro Contaldo.

A live version of The Gruffalo is the top attraction for children attending the festival from 9-12 September.

Organiser Dom Gomez, from Big Wheel, said: "Three years in, we've really got that fantastic formula of food and music just right.

"It's been an amazing journey to get to this point and we're so excited about what we've got."

Harvest at Jimmy's will this year feature two stages dedicated to food and there will also be cookery master classes, the British Street Food Awards and gardening workshops.

Following successful appearances from Ed Sheeran and Lettie at last year's Harvest, BBC Introducing in Suffolk will again be providing acts for the festival at Wherstead.

Organiser Big Wheel has branched out this year and will host a partner festival on the site of Alex James's farm in Oxfordshire.

BBC Suffolk is a media partner of Harvest at Jimmy's and will be broadcasting live from the festival.
