West Norwood Slow Food Festival
In keeping with Slow Down London, we are proud to announce that yet another pocket of London has caught the Slow bug. West Norwood will be hosting a Slow Food Festival on Saturday, March 31st.
It’s a free festival with an exciting line-up that includes Jason White from the BBC Great British Bake-off serving up a Big Slow Food Breakfast and judging a Family Bake-off, live music all day long, theatre performances from the fabulously entertaining Honey Theatre in their ‘giant hive’, Jamaican food storytelling, pheasant plucking, delicious food stalls, pop-up restaurants, and much more!
Beamish & McGlue presents The West Norwood Slow Food Festival, a celebration of the very best food traditions, from our very own corner of South London to the great British countryside. The community of West Norwood is teeming with producers, allotments, cooks, bakers, picklers, coffee roasters, chocolatiers … and our Festival aims to bring the excitement of this cornucopia of food to Londoners on one fabulous, fun-filled Saturday in March (31st, save the date). Expect great things!
We will have top chefs on hand to demonstrate their versions of Slow Food, unmasking the myth that it takes gobs of time and exotic ingredients to make good, clean, delicious food. We are busy lining up activities for the entire family, in a celebration of all things gastronomic in this pocket of South London.
Antonia Beamish and Sarah Coursey, festival organisers, are thankful to the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund for funding the project, to Lambeth Council, Slow Food London and Beamish & McGlue for their undying support, and the entire community of West Norwood for pitching in to make what is sure to be an epic event for food-lovers.
