I have something to brighten your day. With the dank, dark and snowy weather unrelenting, I think we all need something to cheer us up, and get us all through the rain/snow/wind/rain/rain/hail weather pattern we are having and it’s a thank you for reading my little corner of t’internet. The organisers of the largest UK Foodie Festivals have kindly offered 2 of my readers a pair of tickets (each pair worth £30) to their London Foodie Festivals – meccas of delicious food, lovely drink and a chance to meet the people behind their products. 

We went last year (as independent paying, escaping from the office, excited-to-enjoy-the-sunshine customers) so how would you like to try a little of the below (obviously I can’t guarantee the sunshine though!).

Did I mention the New Zealand wine stockists who exhibited last year? See, Kiwis ARE taking over the world.


Now in its eighth year, new highlights will include:

  • A Chocolate Theatre to showcase the world of chocolate and confectionery demonstrations
  • A Wine Village, bringing together international producers and wine regions, including English producers
  • The extensive Producers’ Market sells a vast array of artisan produce from the local area and incorporates the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Market’s award-winning British produce.
  • New dining and VIP area serving signature dishes from top local restaurants including pop-up versions of Ed Baines’ restaurant Randall & Aubin, Jamie’s Italian Kingston and Masala Zone, run by Veeraswamy, the oldest Indian restaurant in the UK. 
  • City Beach where families can chill out on deckchairs with an artisan ice-cream or an afternoon tea whilst children build sandcastles.
  • This year’s Children’s Cookery Theatre will be operated by local cook school Kiddy Cook who will run a series of workshops incorporating gastronomic experiments. 
  • Specialist tea, coffee and fresh juice vendors can be found around the site.
  • The entertainment stage features live music acts including Gloria Miller performing every day
  • A spectacular Bake and Cake Theatre in association with Electrolux incorporating a ‘bake-along’ with members of the audience invited to participate.
  • The new market section Homeware Village offers visitors the chance to shop for kitchenware and gadgets

Thank you to Foodies Festival for
providing these tickets for the readers of Adventures of a London Kiwi, and for inviting me to the
festival this year.

 I can’t guarantee you will get these abs by attending, but the smile I can!
