With over 80 stars from the worlds of music, literature, TV, film and comedy, cinch presents CarFest South 2022 promises to be a dazzling display of the very best in showbiz!

This year, to celebrate StarFest expanding from a single stage to a fully- fledged festival, we thought it only fair to treat you to the biggest and best names around…

On StarFest Xtra presented by Eurotunnel Le Shuttle, we’ve got you covered with comedy as we welcome an epic host of comedians, from a corker of a catch up with Rob Brydon and Jimmy Carr to a session with Sally Phillips, Ronni Ancona, Shaparak Khorsandi and Harriet Thorpe. We’re also ecstatic to welcome, from Hollywood to Hampshire, the wonderful Minnie Driver, as she shares her experiences of an epic 30-year long career in the limelight!

On The StarFest Stage presented by EuroTunnel Le Shuttle, make sure to hear from the brilliant and creative minds of comedian and public speaker Russell Brand and his wife Laura, bestselling author and illustrator, as they chat all things art, experimentation, and creativity! And Line of Duty creator, Jed Mercurio, promises an arresting chat with TV’s most famous coppers, as they share behind the scenes secrets on what it takes to grip a whole nation!

To all our literary lovers, don’t miss out on The Author’s Stage with Costa Coffee, where you can hear from the very best writers, including Ben Miller, Bryony Gordon and Johnny Meah, before grabbing a coffee and relaxing at the Costa Coffee Reading Room.

With all this and so much more, including sessions with soap stars, jungle heroes and novelists, cinch presents CarFest South 2022 will be a party to remember!
