Following a triumphant inaugural year, the Soho Food Feast is returning to the streets of central London this May.

Organised by Margot Henderson (wife of St John’s Fergus, and pictured above), the mini food festival celebrates the best Soho has to offer, with free samples from pop-up versions of local restaurants, cookery demonstrations by well-known chefs, children’s activities, and a raffle – prizes include free meals, theatre tickets, beauty treatments, and more.

Chefs already signed up for the festival include Quo Vadis’ Jeremy Lee, Fergus Henderson of St John Hotel, and Mark Hix, while participating restaurants include Polpo, Wright Brothers, Arbutus, Koya, Terroirs and more.

Tickets bought in advance cost £4 when bought directly from the school, or £6.50 online; tickets bought on the day cost £10. All money raised is donated to the Soho Parish Primary School, which invests in healthy lunches for every pupil and needs funds to continue its work. Last year, the event raised almost £30,000.

The event takes place on Saturday 26 May, from 12N-7pm, at St Anne’s Church garden on Wardour Street. For more information or to buy tickets, visit sohofoodfeast.co.uk
