The three-day event will host up to 200 food and drink companies and will be the first of its kind to take place at The Tower of London's historic dry moat. Guests will be able to enjoy live cookery demonstrations, masterclasses, tutored tastings, street food, pop-up restaurants and music, with the event aiming to become one of London’s most recognisable new food and drink festivals.
Laura Biggs, managing director of River Street Events, said: "Our partnership with Historic Royal Palaces goes from strength to strength. Our August and December Festivals at Hampton Court Palace are firmly placed on the festival calendar attracting jointly more than 37,000 people last year. The progression to the Tower of London is so exciting and we feel truly privileged to run an event at one of London’s most famous landmarks. The location, the backdrop and the content will give young, urban food lovers the chance to indulge their love of food and drink within this unique 900 year old royal palace."
Tickets are set to go on sale in May, at which point more content and information about the event will be shared.
