Hurrah – it’s a Bank Holiday weekend. Which can either mean:
a) Spending lots of time on the motorway
b) Spending lots of time at the garden centre/DIY store
c) Spending lots of time eating and drinking
We sincerely hope your plans fall into camp ‘c’, in which case, we’ve got just the thing. Head down to Queen’s Walk on the South Bank (the bit next to the river, either side of Hungerford Bridge), where you’ll find the World Street Food Festival – a one-off Bank Holiday street food market from the ‘Real Food’ folk. The current line-up of global flavours include dishes from Cheeky Italian, Donostia Social Club, Dosa Deli, The Frenchie, Jamon Jamon, Korrito, Mama’s Jerk Station, the Polish Deli and lots more. There’ll also be a central seating and bar area with craft beer, wine and cocktails, plus live music. It’s free to attend – just pay for what you eat (or drink). And don’t attempt any DIY after a few drinks. Tania Ballantine
April 18-21, Queens Walk, South Bank. Find the full line-up at realfoodfestival.co.uk.
