Welcome to the fifth annual Streatham Food Festival – another feast of foodie delights, right on your doorstep. Over the course of four days we’ll be showcasing Streatham’s vibrant food scene, giving you the chance to try some of the best places to eat and drink in South London.
Kicking things off, the Streatham Food Tour once again invites you to take a food tour of the world in Streatham with taster plates available in 29 local eateries. Last year’s tour proved to be a big hit and we’re expecting an even bigger turnout in 2014. Check out our Food Tour Map for full details and to start planning your tour!
Our Sunday Food Fair also returns to Streatham Green with a fantastic line-up of stalls and entertainment for the whole family. The Green came alive in 2013 and this year’s event has even more on offer with the return of old favourites plus new additions including boozy ice cream, Pakistani street food and dim sum – yum.
We’re delighted to be supporting food growing in schools, with Hitherfield Primary’s Herby Bread Session and new planters going into St Andrew’s. Adults can get in on the act too, with growing sessions at Gracefield Gardens Health Centre; while freshly harvested, locally grown produce will be available to eat at Streatham Common Community Garden’s Victorian Cooking Class, and Sutton Community Farm’s VegBox Dinner. What a treat.
Lots of Streatham businesses are getting into the festival spirit with their own events including a charity cake sale, English supperclub, an advice session for parents, barbeques, challenges and even a bit of fairy magic. We think there’s something for everyone in this year’s programme, we hope you do to.
Of course, the festival couldn’t happen without the help of lots of people and we’d like to give particular thanks to our sponsors for making it possible. Huge thanks also to our brilliant team of staff and volunteers, our partners, supporters, performers, businesses – and to you, the community, for getting involved and making the festival so much fun.
We look forward to seeing you there!
