Top foodies will be showcasing their recipes, but the festival has built up a massive repertoire of feasting, wellness experiences, and music. You can learn to bake in the Cake and Bake Theatre; enjoy a spot of afternoon tea in the Vintage Tea Tent; opt for the wine tasting or champagne (I do love bubbles!) in the Drinks Theatre; refreshing cocktails from the Bar Bus and enjoy live music on the Success Express Music.

Foodies Festival

The Foodies Festival was founded by Sue Hitchen in her home city of Edinburgh in 2006. Sue wanted to start a fun, family festival that celebrated local food and gave Michelin star and top chefs the opportunity to cook their favourite recipes to a foodie audience. The first Foodies launched as part of the Edinburgh Festival and saw Tom Kitchin and Martin Wishart cook for the crowd.

Visitors enjoyed Foodies Festival so much that Sue was encouraged to bring the festival to other cities across the country. Starting in Brighton, launching the first food festival at Hampton Court Palace, and then expanding to Oxford, Bristol, Battersea Park, Clapham Common, Tatton Park, Ripley Castle near Harrogate and London’s Syon Park, Blackheath and Alexandra Palace.

Foodies’ amazing team cares about working in a creative, positive and fun environment where everyone is encouraged to be themselves and develop their skills. Students from local universities and colleges are encouraged to join the Foodies team for the festival weekend.

Launch of new festival on London’s Blackheath

This year sees the launch of a new festival on London’s Blackheath. Unsigned Music Awards sponsors all music stages, encouraging the best-unsigned musicians to play live for our audience, and we are working with Spinnup – the Universal music initiative. British Street Food Awards will hold their regional heats at the Bristol and Blackheath festivals. A beautiful vintage tea tent will host afternoon teas at all the festivals and the VIP tent will be styled as a stunning art deco experience.

People say write about what you know. So I did. I founded Broke Girl in the City – a smart girl’s guide to leading a fabulous lifestyle on a budget! A career spanning entertainment, bars & nightclubs (and frequenting them), film, music and TV, there isn’t much I don’t know about how to have fun in the city when completely broke.
