BBC Radio 2 presenter, Chris Evans has launched a car festival that will raise funds for BBC Children in Need. CarFest will take place at Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire, on August 25-26.

Texas, Razorlight, The Feeling and The Magic Numbers have been confirmed to play at the two-day event. A hill climb, car auctions and car displays will feature over the weekend and a Cake v Pies competition will see 100 pie makers compete against 100 bakers to be crowned the winner by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

Dancing JCBs, Segway racing and the Red Barrows (think of the Red Arrows but with wheelbarrows) will also entertain the crowds.

Tickets will be on sale mid April.
