Both Emma Lloyd's Afternoon Programme, and Donna Birrell's Sunday morning show came live from the Festival.

A new event at this year's festival was the Brunch Challenge which took place on Sunday 30 September. Organised by the Womens Food and Farming Union, this event took the form of a challenge to young Scouts in Cornwall. They had to cook a special meal with the assistance of chefs from the Fifteen Cornwall restaurant.
