Feast Your Eyes on This

If you're looking for quality food expected from a fine dining experience, but wanting an atmosphere that is a little more family friendly, then the Foodies Festival is for you. From the 15th - 17th August culinary masters, local producers, artisan brewers and swing musicians will take to Battersea Park for a three day taste sensation.

This year the UK's largest food & drink's festival has some exciting new areas to explore:

Feasting Tent - Bring your family and friends to dine along top chefs at the banqueting table.

Vintage Tea Tent - Join in daily tea dances or browse the vintage kitchen market for some beautiful new additions for your home.

Real Ale and Cider Farm - Relax on hay bales, chat with an expert, and grab a guitar from behind the bar to start a sing-a-long.

Chilli Market - Unit in a love of all things hot and spicy, and find some tongue tingling condiments for your larder, including sauces, sweets, and jams. At 5pm each day there will be a Chilli Eating Challenge for anyone daring enough.

Chocolate, Cake, Bake and Preserves Theatre - Bakers, pastry chefs, and makers of all things sweet will be running demonstrations and classes throughout the day.

BBQ Arena - Barbecues are what summer is all about. Let out your carnivorous in a meat eating competition, have a go cooking on the barbie, and get the chance to bake your own BBQ cake.

As well as the new additions, old favourites will be back too:

Chefs Tent - Michelin-starred and top chefs will give demonstrations, whipping up their favourite dishes, and sharing their techniques.

Drinks Theatre - Take part in masterclasses, tastings, pair up food with cocktails, and vote for your favourite cocktail of the day.

Children's Cookery Theatre - Kids will learn how to cook and identify foods from around the world.

Pop-Up Restaurant Tents - Dine in style as restauranteurs serve signature dishes.

Street Food Avenue & World Food Pagodas - Taste Thailand, Moscow, and all over corners of the globe.

Producers Market -Stick with your own homegrown traditional favourites, and buy from your local producers.

Live Entertainment Stage - No festival is complete without music.

Tickets to the Foodies festival are 12 Friday, 15 over the weekend, or 22 for the whole three days. Under 12s go free, and there are VIP tickets available too.
