The inaugural Free From Food Festival, taking place at Southbank Centre Square from Friday 25th – Sunday 27th November 2011, will bring together many “Free From” food specialists and the growing number of artisan producers who create a range of gluten, wheat, dairy, sugar and/or egg free goods. The festival will be of interest to all food lovers, as well as those who are genuinely affected by the foods around them. It will appeal not only to coeliacs, but to those with other food intolerances (dairy in particular) through to anyone curious about or wanting to make lifestyle changes to their diet.
Demonstrations and Tastings
The festival promises to have a variety of companies and individuals showcasing their unique, high quality products as well as a schedule of demonstrations, talks and tutored tastings, given by the exhibiting producers themselves, as well as visiting chefs and authorities from the “Free From” world.
Exhibitors will be on hand to educate, offer samples, sell and display their goods, thereby creating an environment where people can learn about, shop, eat and gain further confidence about “Free From” foods as alternative substitutes.
As it’s close to Christmas, many producers will have gluten-free, wheat-free and dairy-free seasonal produce that visitors to the festival can purchase there or order for themselves, friends or family, thereby making Christmas and the holidays an occasion that everyone can enjoy. Companies such as Wag Free will be selling their latest range of gluten free savoury and Christmas products, Inspiralled and Conscious Food will showcase their more healthy Christmas food gift options.
The event takes place from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th November 2011, 11am-8pm daily (6pm on Sunday) at Southbank Centre Square, behind the Royal Festival Hall. The venue is five minutes walk from Waterloo & Embankment tube states and various bus routes. Admission is free.
