About the event
London Seafood Festival arrives at Battersea Power Station this summer, offering an array of events including oyster shucking classes, chef collaborations and a selection of different pop-ups suitable for all the family.
The five day-long festival will be taking place on the banks of the River Thames at Circus West Village, the first chapter in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, which is quickly becoming one of the most exciting new food and drink destinations in London.
Restaurants will be taking part and offering special menus, chef collaborations, ticketed dinners and seafood masterclasses from some of the leading seafood specialists in London throughout the festival, which takes place from Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th June.
There will also be plenty on offer for the little urchins, with mermaids on site, a giant bubble maker and workshops for the children to make shell necklaces and decorate biscuits.
Renowned British oyster and shellfish specialist, Wright Brothers, which recently opened a new riverside seafood restaurant at Circus West Village, will be putting on seafood masterclasses and ticketed dinners as well as their famous Oyster shucking classes.
Vagabond, one of the UK’s first urban wineries offering 100 wines by the glass, will be collaborating with many of the restaurants and hosting various pop-ups with specialist tutored tastings that will keep your palate in tip top form for the next seafood dish.
Fiume, where chef Francesco Mazzei serves traditional recipes from his homeland in the south of Italy, will be offering Italian seafood dishes inspired by the Mediterranean, as well as interesting guest chef collaboration events.
Tonkotsu, a Japanese restaurant known for its ramen, will be hosting seafood specials and classes, plus a special seafood brunch available for one weekend only. No. 29 Power Station West will have an outside pop up bar over the weekend.
Cinnamon Kitchen, the contemporary Indian restaurant run by renowned chef, Vivek Singh, will also be participating in the festival.
Joining the mix at Circus West Village will be a pop up fishmonger and a huge crayfish boil – a communal meal, for which tickets will soon be on sale as well as a cooking demonstration area on the waterfront where guest chefs will cook up fresh seafood and offer tastings.
During the festival, The Luna Cinema will have an outside screen offering families a whale of a time with an array of sea related films next to The Thames. A special sing-a-long edition of “The Little Mermaid” will also feature as part of the line-up.
