A smorgasbord of gourmet delights awaits foodies this October as the Victoria BID hosts its first ever festival.

The Victoria Food Festival 2017 runs from October 16 – 20 and celebrates the area’s development as a dining hotspot in the capital. Events will be both ticketed and public and will range from masterclasses to tastings.

Expect a taste of everything Victoria has to offer along with an insight into the diverse mix of restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops in the area.

Land Securities Nova development has led to an even more exciting range of places to eat and drink with the arrival of crowd pleasing restaurants such as Franco Manca and destination dining with Jason Atherton’s Hai Cenato joining established favourites such as The Goring.

Jacqueline Riozzi, deputy chief executive of the Victoria BID, said: “with the arrival of the Nova food quarter, Dominique Ansell Bakery and a recent Michelin star at The Goring, Victoria is fast becoming a top destination for London foodies. We will be celebrating SW1’s delicious offer at our first Victoria Food Festival and invite you to join us.”

The best way to stay in the loop is to keep an eye on the Victoria BID events calendar to help guarantee your place. www.victoriabid.co.uk
