Friday evening J and I popped by Taste of London, courtesy of the fab team at Google Local London. We had a great time, checking out the stalls, trying new foods and drinks, bumping into friends at the event, and supporting local businesses. (Seriously: we left there with olives, tea, vodka and a bunch of leaflets for products we want to try in future!) Not to mention all the food and drinks we bought on the day.
Full price tickets were £28 to get in, and even though it was a great time (with lots of great food & drink) I think that the entry fee was too expensive when you factor in that all the food/drink was offered at the typical high festival prices. Had entry been £15, I think that would have been spot on for festival goers, though that may have affected the cleanliness of the loos, how often the bins were emptied, etc. However, if you have the spare cash and time to go, today is the last day – so get moving!
Here are some of J & my highlights:
