Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) expands relationship with BBC Good Food to host debut BBC Good Food’s Feast at the Tower of London Moat.
The Tower of London, one of the six venues cared for by independent charity Historic Royal Palaces, is set to host its first BBC Good Food’s Feast event on 22-24 September 2017.
Following the success of the popular BBC Good Food Festivals held at Hampton Court Palace, HRP and co-producers River Street Events are expecting over 100 food and drink exhibitors to attend the event.
Guests can enjoy live cookery demonstrations from well established to upcoming chefs at the ‘Feast Kitchen’, live music and masterclasses in a range of skills from patisserie to cocktails. The BBC Good Food Stage will play host to live interviews and demos, as well as a steak workshop with The Ginger Pig and the Jones Family.
“We have a fantastic relationship with the BBC Good Food brand, which has resulted in this opportunity to introduce a brand new show at the iconic Tower of London,” said Liz Young, head of events at Historic Royal Palaces. “The sweeping dry moat and surrounding castellated buildings are steeped in history, making this a stunning location for BBC Good Food’s Feast.”
“In addition to the fabulous exhibitors and demonstrations on offer, visitors to the festival will play their part in ensuring the Tower of London continues to be well maintained and open for all to enjoy, as income raised from commercial activities is reinvested in conservation, public access and educational activities,” Young added.
Exhibitors at the festival include Blacks Cheese, The New York Deli Company and Conker Spirit with Dorset-inspired gin flavours.
Laura Biggs, managing director of River Street Events, commented: “It’s a privilege to work in such an iconic setting, the location and the dry moat give the perfect setting for BBC Good Food’s Feast.”
