We’ve teamed up with the Foodies Festival to help celebrate their 10th Anniversary.

Up for grabs are 2 pairs of Standard tickets, goodie bags and show guides, plus a bonus entry for a pair of super awesome VIP tickets. So read on and see how to enter….
For those who have never been, you can expect celebrity chefs, new food and drink theatres, artisan producers and more street food than you can shake a satay stick at. Since launching at Clapham Common in 2013, the South London event has become their flagship festival in their Foodies’ series of summer festivals, attracting over 33,000 visitors last year.
To toast Foodies’ big year, a Wine and Champagne Theatre hosts tutored tastings with experts Neil Phillips and Charles Metcalfe who will guide visitors through this season’s best British bubblies from the UK and around the world, and beer expert Melissa Cole hosts masterclasses in the New Craft Beer Theatre, matching foods with locally produced craft beers.
