Foodstock LDN is back, and it is bigger and better than ever before

Battersea Park’s biggest food festival is back from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 July and this year there is the new edition – Friday NIGHT. At 5pm, grab your colleagues, friends and family and head to Battersea Park for well-deserved after work drinks, stuff yourselves with mouth-watering street food and sip on cool and refreshing drinks whilst listening to live electro swing in the glorious sunshine.

Take in the hit of flavour from Spinach, who will be serving up the best fresh vegetable menu that London has to offer. Make sure you try Smokoloko as they put on a culinary display of the juiciest meat in town. The bar will be well stocked with craft beer from local brewery, Mondo Brewing Company, and jugs of PIMMS on hand to ease you into the weekend.

Ready for an onslaught of street food? Kurbside Kitchen will be bringing gourmet hot dogs – high quality mouth-watering beef, pork, chorizo and tofu natural skin hot dogs encased for a perfect snap. Placed inside a Brioche sub baked daily by their artisan baker. Delish.

Whilst you tuck into a feast, there will be live sets from The After Hours, the UKs first Electro-Swing band to blend belligerent bass, beats and brass to devastating effect. Fizzy Gillespie – best known for taking the Vintage sounds of 1930’s Swing to 1960’s Soul, as well as everything in between – will be spinning the decks in between sets.
