The Tower of London, one of six venues cared for by Historic Royal Palaces, will host the very first BBC Good Food’s Feast event from September 22-24.
Following the success of the BBC Good Food Festivals held at Hampton Court Palace, Historic Royal Palaces and co-producers River Street Events are expecting more than 100 food and drink exhibitors at the Tower of London event, alongside a host of Michelin chefs, including Tom Kerridge, Michel Roux Jr and Elizabeth Haigh.
Guests can enjoy live cookery demonstrations from well-established chefs and rising stars at the “Feast” Kitchen, live music and masterclasses from patisserie to cocktails, alongside the delicious street food and artisan producers in the striking moat setting. The BBC Good Food Stage will play host to live interviews and demos, as well as a steak workshop with Ginger Pig and the Jones Family.
Liz Young, head of events at Historic Royal Palaces, says: “We have a fantastic relationship with the BBC Good Food brand, which has resulted in this opportunity to introduce a brand new show at the iconic Tower of London. The dry moat and surrounding castellated buildings are steeped in history, making this a stunning location for BBC Good Food’s Feast.
“In addition to the fabulous exhibitors and demonstrations on offer, visitors to the festival will play their part in ensuring the Tower of London continues to be well maintained and open for all to enjoy, as income raised from commercial activities is reinvested in conservation, public access and educational activities.”
Laura Biggs, managing director of River Street Events, adds: “It’s a privilege to work in such an iconic setting, the location and the dry moat give the perfect setting for BBC Good Food’s Feast.”
