This March, Eat & Drink Festival is returning to London for its fifth year, taking place at Olympia London, and will last from Friday 17 March to Sunday 2 April with co-partners The Ideal Home Exhibition. The event showcases the best of modern cuisine, mixology and independent produce, bringing together hundreds of street food vendors, artisan food producers, top food brands and experts in the field to create a celebration of gastronomy. 


Guests at the festival will be able to make their way around a whole host of food and drink focused activities. At 'The Great Eat', visitors can explore London's thriving street food scene, with vendors serving up flavours from all round the world – everything from the best burgers to irresistible curries.

You can also expect to see live demonstrations at 'The Eat & Drink Stage' from top chefs including Rosemary Shrager, John Torode, Juliet Sear, wine expert Olly Smith and many more of your favourites. For food that you can take home with you (or eat as you wander through the show), the 'Artisan Producers Market' will include stalls offering a host of goodies like breads, chutney, jams and patisserie favourites.  

For those looking to relax and listen to music whilst indulging in all of the food the festival has to offer, The Busker Stage will be serving up live acoustic sessions from a range of talented artists.

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