With London fast becoming one of the biggest foodie destinations in the world, it’s no surprise that there is a growing demand for food festivals in the capital. Known for our wide and varied palate, Londoners are open to trying a range of cuisines from around the world on their doorstep.

After already fulfilling appetites across the country in Brighton, Bristol and Edinburgh over the summer, this weekend sees the team behind the Foodies Festival come to London for The Big Feast at Battersea Park.

Held over this weekend, a host of celebrity chefs and popular food and drink brands will be converging on SW11 for this new festival. Among those showcasing their skills and delicious dishes are Matt Robinson (Bluebird), Ben Tish (Salt Yard), Matt Pickop (Maze), the Michelin-starred Robert Ortiz (Lima), 2013 MasterChef winner Natalie Coleman and legendary Tuscan chef Giancarlo Caldesi. As well as chef theatres, masterclasses and tastings, there will also be Street Food Avenue, where visitors can sample street and artisan food.

As well as food, there are plenty of opportunities to drink, including a Tequila Beach (a pop-up tequila beach bar serving cocktails) and Grand Marnier’s Hidden Charm Bar which will feature ‘flamboyant characters, tempting tipples, great music and a few unexpected surprises’. Other attractions include the Ibiza Chill Out Cocktail Bar, Vintage Tea Tent, Bar on a Bike, children’s cookery theatre and live music.

  • The Big Feast takes place at Battersea Park, SW11, from 15-17 August 2014. Fri & Sat 11am-9pm, Sun 11am-8pm. Tickets: One day adult – £15, Friday ticket and concessions – £12, Three day ticket – £25 (£18 concession).
