Soho Food Feast

Now in its sixth year, this fundraiser for Soho Parish Primary School is a much more food-focused affair than your regular school fete. In fact the line-up of restaurants whose food will be represented here is astonishing-  NOPI, Dean Street Town House, Ceviche, Patty & Bun and a good load more will be serving tasters of their menus to visitors at one token a pop. A token equates to £2, making this an extraordinarily good value way of eating your way around Soho's finest.
