Thai Festival 2008

Though it didn’t run last year, the annual Thai Festival is scheduled to run again this year on 27 July in Battersea Park’s Genius site. Celebrate all things Thai and understand the different aspects of Thai life. Restaurants will be there showing off their best traditional Thai dishes, prepared on the spot by the chefs. Alongside the savoury dishes are desserts, exotic fruits and juices, plus refreshing Thai beer from Singha. There'll also be plenty of entertainment such as handicraft and fruit carving demonstrations.

The festival is sponsored by the Thai-UK trust, set up to relieve the hardship of the sick, poor, and needy of both Thailand and the UK. What's more, thanks to corporate support from the likes of Thai Airways and Singha beer, entrance is a modest £3 for adults and free for children.
