Summer is officially in full swing and we can’t wait to take over the grounds of Hampton Court Palace for a food lover’s feast like no other over the August Bank Holiday weekend! With so much going on for all ages, where do you start? Here are our 10 top highlights to give you a flavour of what to expect…
You can really make a day of it whilst at the Festival and explore the palace and gardens for FREE! Meet the historic chefs and experience the sights, sounds and smell of Henry VIII's kitchens. Plus don't miss the maze and Magic Garden play area!
We’re so excited to be joined by the wonderful Nadiya Hussain for the very first time at this year’s festival! Plus don’t miss Michel Roux Jr, Melissa Hemsley, Dr Rupy Aujla, Lisa Faulkner, Kenny Tutt and more! See them cooking up a storm in The Kitchen.
We’re delighted that the team from local restaurant No.97 will be joining us for our exclusive Lexus Lunch Club. Reserve your seat at the table and enjoy an al fresco, BBQ style lunch, a glass of Champagne PIAFF on arrival and your very own private bar! Click here to see the menu and reserve your seat.
School may be out, but The Classroom is the place to be! Whether you want to try your hand at Naked Cake Decorating or learn all about Authentic Indian Cooking with Anjula Devi, there’ll be a class to suit you. Plus for the gin fans out there, join the No.97 Gin Club and learn how to make a superb G&T!
We’re really excited to announce some fantastic producers new to the Festival this year. Pick up some treats from Freda’s Peanut Butter, enjoy gluten and dairy-free delights from Pudology and sip on refreshing beer from the Small Beer Brew Co. Cool down with an irresistible scoop of Panache Ice Cream.
The Festival is a fantastic family event with lots of activities to keep all ages entertained. Meet the Shire horses, join Circus Sensible, have your face painted or join a sports session. Plus, get the little ones involved in Kids’ Cookery Class in The Classroom. There’s lots of fun to be had!
