Chefs from some of London’s top restaurants also make an appearance, including Sameer Taneja from Michelin starred Benares, Micheal Carr from Sky Garden and Dayashanka Sharma from Heritage.

At the festival, more than 200 exhibitors will show off their produce and wares, offering punters to taste the variety London’s food scene offers.

Visitors can enjoy the Chefs Theatre, Cake & Bake Theatre, Drinks Theatre as well as masterclasses in champagne, beer and cocktail making.

Children can get involved in the Kids Cookery School, and everyone can enjoy Street Food Avenue and Shopping Village which boasts an array of award-winning artisan producers.

There’s also the chili eating competition too, if you dare.

For the music, Sophie Ellis-Bextor will swap her live-streamed kitchen discos for the main stage.

The Murder on the Dancefloor singer shares the spotlight with The Killerz and Ultimate Coldplay, covering much-loved anthems.
