Win Tickets to the Foodies Christmas Festival

One thing about Christmas that everybody loves, apart from Santa coming to visit obviously, is Christmas food! It’s the one time of year that we can really go to town. If you are entertaining at your own home it’s a chance to show off your culinary skills, or if like me, you prefer to buy everything in (much easier) it’s the enjoyment of visiting amazing food establishments and buying something extra special to eat over the holidays.

Visiting a food festival sounds like a fantastic way of seeing lots of gorgeous food and sampling some of the delights too, I have never been to one myself before but this year I am definitely going to the first ever  ‘Foodies Festival Christmas‘ event at The Old Truman Brewery, November 28,29,30th. I am also giving away three pairs of tickets to the event so make sure you keep reading and enter! Plus, if you don’t win you can use this discount code to buy tickets at a reduced rate. The festival itself is touring the UK so if you want to visit, there is one coming to a town near you 


Following the success of the Foodies events across the UK in the summer, organisers are delighted to announce this cracker of a festival, bringing together the spirit of Christmas and the joy of feasting with family and friends.

Foodies Festival is the UK’s largest celebration of food and drink, and this Christmas instalment will bring you London’s top chef’s cooking live in a new open air Chef’s Theatre and you can learn how to prepare the perfect Christmas feast with a full range of produce available to buy in the artisan market. As well as traditional mince pies, mulled wine and roast chestnuts, the festival boasts a huge selection of new features including a Whiskey Arena with a range of whiskeys and malts for sale and a Ski Bar serving après ski cocktails, off-piste snacks including crepes and toasties and live DJs to create a chilled out St Anton vibe. These are complemented with a Soda Bar and food and drink matching masterclasses with experts in the Drinks Theatre; who will advise on the best champagne and wines to buy this season.

The Christmas Feasting Table takes centre stage at the festival, where visitors can sit at communal banqueting tables under twinkling fairy lights and festive decorations with friends and family and tuck into foods served from the surrounding Street Food AvenuePop-Up RestaurantsCoffee Corner and Cheese Village with cheese makers from the UK, France and Italy.

Visitors should visit the Producers Grotto where they will discover a Craft Beer Market and pop-up breweries, highlighting London’s top craft brewers. Visitors can enjoy a hot toddy while browsing local artisan produce to enjoy or have gift wrapped as gifts to take home. A Pudding Hall is a haven of sweet treats with pâtissiers and chocolatiers selling eggnog tarts, marzipan bonbons and macaron; as well as a life-size Gingerbread House serving warm ginger beer and roasted ginger marshmallows. There are also hands-on masterclasses in cake decorating and icing, where participants can personalise edible treats to hang on the Christmas tree at home.

Just like Christmas day there is lots of post-feasting fun to be had with entertainment throughout the day. Visitors can register their team to compete in the Christmas Bumper Quiz at 5pm daily, have a group Christmas jumper picture taken in the photo boothsing carols and learn how to dance the Gay Gordon with ceilidh dancing and live music from the Accoustic Stage.

For the little ones, an Elf Cookery School invites children under 12 to bake snowballs and decorate gingerbread men, cookies and cupcakes to leave out for Santa. There are also live reindeers to pet and snow balls fights to be had in the courtyard.
