Enfield Food Festival

Forty Hall Farm, 28 – 29 August

Held at Forty Hall Farm, an organic working farm, in partnership with The Food Gatherer, an award-winning local online food hub and home delivery service, the Enfield Food Festival offers a fun-filled programme of foodie-themed events and activities, including over 20 food stalls, cooking demonstrations, tours and tastings at the Forty Hall Vineyard, and a Bake Off competition. Visitors should come with a healthy appetite and a large dose of enthusiasm to make the most of this vibrant, off-the-beaten track event.

Chinese Food Festival

Potters Field Park, 19 - 21 August 
The cliché about Chinese cuisine is that an hour after eating it, you fancy it all over again. That old chestnut will be put to the test this August when all day fare will be available to eat at the 2016 Chinese Food Festival. Taking place at Potters Field Park, next door to London’s iconic Tower Bridge, the free-to-enter event will showcase the best of Chinese food through an array of fun events and activities including celebrity chef demonstrations and stalls selling classic Chinese kitchenware. There’ll also be entertainment in the shape of traditional performances such as tea ceremonies, musical instruments and much more.
