Men vs Food Tim gets to play Knebworth 21 years on!
In 1996 at Knebworth while watching Oasis along with 124,999 others, our Men vs Food compere, Tim Rushton, vowed one day to return to Knebworth with his own band and play to a similar sized crowd.
However tragedy struck at 4pm on some idle Tuesday in June 1999 which meant that Tim would never be able to fulfil his ambition. It was at this time he realised that as well as being unable to sing he had no musical talent whatsoever.
Tim therefore had to forge another career in the entertainment industry and after a fallow period of 13 years he reassessed his skills. He realised he was quite good at making sarcastic comments and this aligned to being able to talk and having a proud record of being able to make 1 in 7 people laugh meant that Tim entered the Compere circuit.
Tim will be on the Challenge stage at Knebworth on 22nd & 23rd July from 10am to 5pm leading all the Men vs Food challenges along with the ever popular Cake off. Sign up here for the Cake off and get free entry!
Talking to Tim a week before the Knebworth festival he said “It’s an honour to be fulfilling a lifelong ambition to play Knebworth and we hope to provide lots of fun and entertainment during the 7 hours we’ll be on stage (with one toilet break) each day. Also don’t forget – Wear Sunscreen!”
