-London's Best Events-

The Taste of London festival is back this summer with the 2021 edition of the showcase promising to be the best one yet. Cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic the festival is returning to Regents Park again this year following several successful events at the venue in the past.

“Get ready for the most delicious reunion of the summer, as we take up our usual haunt in the centre of sun-drenched Regent’s Park for 10 days of next level feasting” says the website for the event. “After a year of maxing out on takeaways, abandoned sourdough starters and DIY picnic dining, it’s time to pack away the apron and let us take it from here”

This year’s festival will be considerably longer than previous events, going from five days to ten and from one weekend to two, otherwise, however, the formula remains the same: top class chefs and top glass cuisine.

Thirty of London’s best chefs and restaurants will be high tailing it to central London for the event, with among the illustrious list of names signed up for the event.

The annual celebration of London’s restaurant and food scene will also include the usual mix of demonstrations, workshops and masterclasses with the TOL gang saying: “Expect…fire-fuelled theatrics, live entertainment, and 66 hours of unrestrained indulgence. After satiating your hunger hopping between restaurants, immerse yourself in a unique culinary experience, get lost among the producer markets discovering your new favourite artisan brand or settle down for an exclusive menu tasting. Plus there will be plenty of cocktail twists to shake up before you dance until sundown in front of the Bandstand”.

Presales for the event will open on the 30th of April with a limited number of tickets going on sale on that day. Festival goers can sign up for presale tickets here.
