Main stage, Traveller Food Festival 2019

The National Geographic Traveller Food Festival has announced it will be moving to new dates — 17-18 July 2021 — and will be taking place once more at the Business Design Centre, Islington.

With the Covid-19 situation spreading around the world, the decision was made to reschedule the event, which was originally due to take place on 18-19 July 2020.

Glen Mutel, editor of National Geographic Traveller Food, said: “While this remains a difficult time for us all, we want to give everyone something to look forward to. We’re really pleased to have secured the Business Design Centre as the venue for our rescheduled festival, and we’ll be spending the time between now and then adding to our exciting lineup of chefs and food writers, and developing our festival features to make it an event that will be worth waiting for.”

The event will feature a programme of events, from demonstrations by big-name chefs to interviews with top food personalities.

Culinary experiences for visitors will range from food and drink sampling to cooking tutorials. Elsewhere, the festival will feature masterclasses and immersive international experiences with destinations including Georgia, Greece and Wales.

Speakers’ Corner, an intimate lounge venue, will see cookbook authors and food writers discuss their culinary passions and latest publications. The 2021 lineup will be announced later in the year.

An early-bird ticket rate of £10, a discount of 50% on the full ticket price, is available.

Last year’s successful event attracted more than 5,500 attendees, with 45 exhibitors and 59 talks, demonstrations and masterclasses welcoming visitors to experience the world through food and travel.

When: 17-18 July 2021
Where: Business Design Centre, London, N1 0QH
Tickets: Early-bird rate of £10 available now. Includes one-day entry to the festival, with access to all interviews, Q&As and panel sessions and chef demonstrations
