The Waterloo area is packed with restaurants, pubs, cafés, bars and specialist food shops and they've collaborated to stage The Waterloo Food Festival: a month of exclusive events, tastings and demonstrations. Highlights confirmed so far include an evening food fair (July 2), an outdoor cocktail making session (July 16) a family fete (July 18) and a world food showcase (July 30). A surplus food challenge will take place on July 9 in which Waterloo chefs will be tasked with creating a tempting dish using only surplus food in 30 minutes flat. Local venues such as House of Vans, Assado, Baltic and The Walrus will be offering their own events and discounts, too. Check the We Are Waterloo website for the latest announcements.

I didn't really enjoy this. Felt it lacked atmosphere and felt a bit like a village fair gone wrong. Not something I would recommend
Bitter disappointment. The "beer and burger festival" was a mere heap of plastic chairs, a BBQ serving what can only be described as "gritty" burgers and two beer stands on a concrete square. Very much oversold and not worth the 50 miles we travelled to experience it.
We, The Dark Knights of Cholesterol, hosted a wine & cheese evening at the 1901 Arts Club. While I'll leave it to others to comment on our event, I wanted to say that the venue and its staff are both top notch. The space is beautiful, fully equipped in terms of kitchen, service & IT and is perfect for classy, intimate events. Highly recommended.
