Soho Food Feast

We can’t have a ‘Thing to Do’ list without a food festival or two and with summer now officially here, central Londoners might want to check out Soho’s Food Feast. Now in its seventh year, this fundraiser for Soho Parish Primary School is much more than a regular school fete with some of central London’s best up and coming restaurants serving up some spectacular dishes.
The likes of Soho stalwarts Pizza Pilgrims will be on duty, while Ceviche will be bringing the Peruvian seafood and Patty & Bun will be bringing their famed burgers if you like to keep things simple. There’s tons more vendors on duty and while the £15 entry might sound steep, you’ll be provided with tokens upon entry! Get your tickets here.

More than £50m-worth of cars have been carefully curated by the London Concours Steering Committee, with this year’s theme of ‘Speed’ bringing you the likes of the Lamborghini Miura S, the McLaren F1, the Ferrari F50 and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
