Eat and Drink festival event chef Theo Randall

This March, the Eat & Drink Festival returns to London for its second year. Taking place at Olympia London, the 17-day festival brings together street food vendors, artisan food producers, top food brands and experts in the field to create a celebration of gastronomy. You can also take advantage of our exclusive SquareMeal ticket offer, using the code SQM241 to get two tickets for the price of one.

Guests at the festival will be able to make their way around a whole host of food and drink focused activities. At The Drinks Station, industry experts will be sharing their tips and tricks on how to pair food with the right drinks, while Late Night Thursdays will see top street food vendors serve up tasty grub until 9pm, accompanied by live music. The Foodie Stage will see live demonstrations, while The Great Eat area is the place to be for sampling dishes from across the culinary spectrum.

You can also expect to see several big names in attendance, with the likes of Aldo Zilli, Monica Galetti and Theo Randall all getting in on the action. Randall and Zilli will separately take to The Foodie Stage to demonstrate their Italian-leaning recipes, while Masterchef: The Professionals star Galetti will discuss her experiences on the show, as well as how to make your own show-stopping dishes at home.  

Drinks aficionados will also have the opportunity to learn from Olly Smith, a regular wine expert on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen. He’ll be appearing at The Drinks Station to talk about top trends for 2018, as well as sharing his secrets about successful food and drink pairings.

And if all of that isn’t enough to convince you, Eat & Drink Festival visitors also receive free entry into the Ideal Home Show.

The Eat & Drink Festival takes place from 17 March to 2 April. Tickets are priced from £14 per person, but you can use code SQM241 to get two tickets for the price of one. Click here to grab a ticket before they’re all gone!
