New street-food festival, Magic Feast, arrives in South East London
Magic Feast is a unique new event taking place on 12th November 2014 in the heart of South East London in aid of local children’s charity Magic Breakfast. Some of SE1’s finest restaurants have come together to create a street-food style festival, complete with food stalls, DJ, raffle, live auction and some schoolyard fun, all located in the cafeteria of Surrey Square Primary School, one of the many schools supported by Magic Breakfast. The charity delivers free, nutritious breakfasts to 8,500 primary school students with the aim of aiding children’s concentration and learning in the classroom.
The influential Bermondsey Street gastropub The Garrison, whose opening eleven years ago paved the way for the regeneration of SE1’s culinary scene will be serving a poached pear salad with chicory, stilton and caramel walnuts. Their sister restaurant and neighbour Village East, will be serving their now infamous Lamb Meatball sliders. Hutong will be descending 33 floors from The Shard and treating visitors to their poached pork wontons with garlic spicy sauce. Burger fans won’t go hungry with MEATliquor present, who will not only be flipping their Dead Hippie sliders and Mushroom and Halloumi sliders, but also providing music for the event courtesy of their very own radio station, MEATtransMISSION. New to the London Bridge block is The Breakfast Club, who are serving guests Pancakes with berries and cream. Not only that, Columbia Road’s 1235 Donuts will be making a guest appearance with their homemade donuts.
In support of Magic Breakfast, a fantastic raffle on the evening will give guests the chance to win prizes generously donated by a selection of South London restaurants and bars. Prizes include a voucher to dine at favourite oyster and seafood restaurant, Wright Brothers, located in Borough Market as well as the chance to win an exciting pasta making class with Chef Lale of Bermondsey Street restaurant, Zucca.
To wash all of this down, local wines and craft beer have been provided and can be enjoyed throughout the night with the evening concluding at 11pm.
Tickets, priced at £50, include all food and drink as well as a raffle ticket, and are available to purchase at www.magicfeast.eventbrite.co.uk
