We celebrated our 3 month anniversary at the Brighton food festival during the first bank holiday weekend in May. Of course rain was predicted all weekend. Having rolled enough ravioli for three solid days of trading we packed the big yellow van and set off.
Luckily the forecast cleared up and we had beautiful sunny days on the Saturday and Sunday. It was super busy all weekend which was great to see. Our newest RaviOllie recruit Caitlin paired up with Lily were a formidable team and great fun to work with. We even met Chris Eubank JNR, no doubt a future boxing legend and potential long term RaviOllie fan, sadly didn’t give off the good vibes I was expecting (maybe because he didn’t offer to pay, maybe im just being bitter….who knows).
The setting was fantastic, right on the front looking over the famous Brighton beaches. We honestly had nothing but good things to say about our Foodie festival experience. The organisation was fantastic, the other traders were friendly and the selection of food was next to none. It was great to spend sometime down in Brighton too. What a qwerky, interesting and fun place to be. The place is full of really genuinely nice people. I can definitely see the attraction of living there.
A few highlights from the festival: Chilli eating contest! … Meeting Chris Eubank JNR (half a highlight) … being shaken by the hand and congratulated on the delicious food that we had served by three different individuals (made it all worth it).
We will be back to Foodies in the future for sure.
