Chiswick House & Gardens

4th – 8th August

A Taste Of World Cuisine

A Food & Drinks Festival In West London

5,000+ people over 9 sessions, lunch & evening.

Summer is back!

A celebration of food and drink from around the world, bringing people together whilst supporting the catering sector.

Where’s this come from?

During the Summer of 2020, the Chiswick Festival team invented a new, pioneering Covid Secure Event concept – where we successfully delivered evenings of jazz, opera, and rock to comedy and bingo nights. We staged 21 nights of entertainment and safely entertained over 5,000 visitors – making us one of the few event organisers safely hosting Covid Secure Events.

Lots of last years visitors have asked us to do something again, and one of the visitors suggested we did food from around the world – which we loved. 

So after conversations with Chiswick House who also loved the type of event, it’s back on!

What’s This All About!

Over the course of an extended long weekend – Weds 4th Sept through to Sunday 8th September Chiswick Festival is planning to offer locals, and Londoners the opportunity to taste food from local street food stalls, coupled with buying items from food, drink and kitchen related artisan stalls, in surroundings where they will be able to sit back, relax, indulge and enjoy a great atmosphere, with some great entertainment.

The event will be a ticketed event, where a ticket will allow entry for one person for a “session”.

Each session is a 4-hour block, with an array of caterers serving food from around the world, supported with entertainment ranging from “how to” cookery demonstrations, to colourful acts, with ambient background music, all with the aim to help keep everyone engaged and stay on-site for the duration, spending more at the catering units and bars.

The idea with this concept is to offer –

  • Local street food stalls the opportunity to cook “tasting” signature dishes from their main menu, at £5 per dish (the idea being visitors could enjoy several smaller dishes from around the world as they taste dishes from various caterers)
  • Unique stalls and stands would be able to provide products and produce for members of the public to buy and take home (e.g. Cheese stalls, Bread stalls, Kitchen stalls etc.)
  • The event is all outdoors and we’d ensure it is Covid Secure following all the same measures we introduced at our event in August 2020; so minimising all risks with Covid (see below).
  • This will be a fabulous way for friends and family to meet outdoors, in a secure, fun, creative and engaging environment whilst supporting our local hosptitality trade.
  • Doing this will help with everyone’s mental wellbeing and get the world of meeting people and the hospitality trade back up and running.
  • At the close of the festival, Chiswick Festival will offer the ability for each stand to send offers to the public who attend to drive further custom to their business
  • All Prevailing Government Guidelines will be adhered to; and we will still maintain increased safety despite lockdown’s easing, for the safety of our own teams and those attending.
