Recently we have started to get excited about having our first summer of trading in London. With London and the surrounding areas in such a street food boom there is so much opportunity to trade at some fantastic festivals. Whether its foodie festivals, music festivals or one day events around the country, we are spoilt for choice. Being spoilt for choice however, does not mean its easy to get to these places, the competition is rife! After spending a lot of time sending off applications to festivals and events around the country to what seemed like no avail. A couple of months down the line we were completely shocked with the response we got. Our Unique stall and interesting food offerings have gained us fantastic feedback and we have been accepted to trade at several places. I wanted to use this oppurtunity to run through some of the festivals that we currently have booked in and how we got some of them.
Urban food fest (April 9th)
We are very exited about this event. Urban food fest are putting on a Saturday market in Shoreditch through march and April and they have chosen us to trade there on the 9th. With thousands of people from the local trendy area of Shoreditch attending it has the makings of a great day. The line up of street food traders is a great one to be amongst as it is showcasing some of the best street food stalls in London. Come down it’s not to be missed!
London Irish Rugby festival (24th April)
A one day event that displays not only fantastic sporting talent but a large selection of some delicious street food stalls. It will be family based with a range of ages, what could be better than a warming bowl of ravioli when you’re getting cold on the sidelines ay?
BBC Good food show (27th – 29th August)
The BBC good food show came about through a bit of luck and some good timing. On a slow day in Kingston our team were doing their best to make everyone at least, try our Ravioli. One such person was taken aback by the quality of the product and couldn’t resist to buy some. Having woofed down a bowl of our popular butternut squash and parmesan ravioli, she revealed that she worked for BBC good food show and would we like to trade at their events…….. After a few seconds of deliberation her offer was accepted and we are now booked in to trade at their stunning event at Hampton court palace!
Foodie festival Brighton/Bristol (30th april – 2nd May/ 13th – 15th may)
Foodie festivals are a fantastic company operating markets across the UK throughout the year. Having just started our adventure into the street food world we are relishing the opportunity to experience some new, different customers in different cities. Lets make the whole of the UK know about RaviOllie!
Blenheim castle (28th-30th May)
To round off a truly non-stop May we have been asked to trade in the spectacular surroundings of Blenheim castle. Fantastic food festivals also put on some great events around the UK and this was one that couldn’t be missed. With some live chef demonstrations and a great atmosphere around the castle this is set to be one to remember.
Bring on summer…….
