Thai Festival of Food & Culture

Thai Festival of Food & Culture

On Sunday 13th August, Battersea Park once again plays host to the 12th Annual Thai Food & Culture Festival. Presented by The Thai Restaurant Association of the UK, this colourful event attracts thousands of Londoners every year with dozens of food & craft stalls, several bars and live Thai themed entertainment. It is a glorious summer celebration of Thailand’s exquisite food and distinctive culture, a great family day out and the highpoint of London’s Thai social calendar.

This year’s event is made extra special as it coincides with the 60th Anniversary of the King of Thailand’s accession to the throne. The King is a die-hard jazz fan and this will be celebrated by a unique collaboration with London’s famous Vortex Jazz club, who have arranged for leading Jazz singer, Juliet Kelly, to appear at the festival. Juliet will be performing jazz renditions of the King’s songs.

London’s Thai Expats will also be excited to hear that famous Thai comedy actress, country singer and entertainer, Janet Keaw, is flying over especially from Thailand to host the festivities. She will introduce the exotically dressed Thai dancers, musicians and kickboxers who will be on stage to entertain the crowds throughout the day.

Naturally, the festival is a tremendous treat for lovers of Thai Food. Authentic Thai street food is available from dozens of stalls representing restaurants throughout the UK. Visitors wishing to try their hands at Thai cooking can also watch demonstrations and purchase authentic recipe books. Several stalls also stock hard to find fruits, vegetables, curry pastes and spices.

The festival starts at 11am and ends at 7pm, costing £3 entry. A raffle will be held and amongst the prizes are a 3-night stay for 2 in a 5* hotel in bangkok plus flights and 3 pairs of return flights to Thailand.
