What's on

Main Stage: Demonstrations and interviews with the culinary world’s leading lights, from top chefs and broadcasters to leading writers and restaurant critics. 

Speakers’ Corner: Our second stage represents a more intimate setting, in which visitors can hear from the authors of some of the most exciting recent cookbook releases. The programme will take a deep dive into the culinary destinations that inspired these works, with visitors invited to ask questions before being able to purchase their favourite cookbook and get it signed. 

Wine & Spirits Theatre: This is where attendees can book sessions to find out about more about their favourite tipples before visiting the Drinks Showcase to try and buy wine, spirits, beer and non-alcoholic beverages from across the globe, too. 

Masterclasses: When it comes to food, there’s nothing better than seeing the masters in action. The two Masterclass Theatres will showcase some of the world’s most fascinating cuisines, via a series of live cooking demonstrations and tastings.
