Balham Food Festival 2015

The diverse, delicious and ever so slightly decadent Balham Food Festival 2015 is back after a two-year absence and following the completion of a £2m facelift to the centre of Balham.

Starting Sunday with The Balham Banquet

Located in the recently transformed Hildreth Street and Bedford Hill Place, the Festival kicks off with The Balham Banquet from 11am to 6pm on Sunday 27th September. With 25+ stalls featuring delicious, freshly cooked or soothingly cool dishes from local restaurants, bars and cafés, plus gourmet cheeses, charcuterie, cakes and treats. All within earshot of jazz and other musical treats.

Meanwhile in Hildreth Street Mews, a courtyard off Hildreth Street, kids will love the Hello Mums babysitting sponsored Kids Zone, with Dee from Dee Light Bakery teaching children how to make gingerbread; Johny from Gallery Midnight making art out of vegetables; demos from Emma Hammett of First Aid for Life; Facepainting courtesy of McDonald’s and a ‘hook a duck’ game in aid of Ickle Pickles.

And what’s more, BBC Masterchef’s own John Torode will launch the event, until recently a long-standing Balham resident.

The Balham Banquet is just the beginning!

The Balham Food Festival continues until 4th October, with a wide range festival offers, special events and promotions available across Balham’s eclectic eating and drinking scene, including in-store tastings, delicious festival menus and tempting discounts.

Over the week you can choose from 27 amazing offers and events, the details of which you’ll find Balham Food Festival. Be sure to check out @balhamfoodfest on twitter for more updates.
