    The Great Feast of London

    Apr 2020
    • London, United Kingdom
    • Full Time
    • The Great Feast of London is a re-imagining of the festival experience. We’re merging the digital and physical to bring food and drink directly to your front doors, garden gates or local parks, accompanied by live-streamed gigs and curated playlists. Across the weekend we also have a lively programme of virtual wellbeing classes, talks and experiences. www.greatfeast.com Throughout the weekend we’re also asking you to join our exploration of ways to better care for the planet, each other and ourselves. There’s a range of classes, workshops and discussions to join. US thinker Charles Eisenstein is speaking with Amisha Ghadiali about building a more connected world. Project Ajna is leading a meditation workshop, while Josie Danielle is presenting a sound healing session. For those looking for something more physical, yoga classes across the weekend are hosted by More Yoga. Our food is brought to you by London’s most exciting chefs and restaurants – from exclusive 100 cover dining experiences from Michelin-starred chefs Ollie Dabbous and Nuno Mendes, through to meal kits and hot food from Patty and Bun, Kricket and Neil Rankin – all delivered to your door.
