GO! Organic Festival – London’s First Organic Food and Music Event

8-9 September 2018 – Battersea Park, London

For people who love music, food, our planet, festivals and fun for all the family, GO! Organic Festival has all you need for a wonderful weekend. There will be over a dozen live cooking demonstrations in the Organic Kitchen, with top chefs sharing their pro tips and exclusive recipes for creating tasty, naturally-good food every day.

For Italian food lovers – Theo Randall’s exclusive demo on Sunday 9 September (1pm) is a must.  A former head chef at the legendary River Café (it was under his direction that the restaurant won its first Michelin Star in 1997), his restaurant ‘Theo Randall at the InterContinental’ in London is consistently voted one of the best Italians in the UK.  He’ll be talking about his passion for all things organic, while preparing a selection of his favourite dishes from his new book My Simple Italian.

Other new names on the menu include: Asian cookery expert and London Food Board member Angela Malik, who’ll be focusing on the importance of buying and using sustainably-sourced ingredients at home.  Melissa Hemsley who is one half of the Hemsley Sisters whose food business Hemsley + Hemsley has pioneered modern healthy home cooking since 2010. And ‘plant-forward’ chef Jay Morjaria, founder of central London’s first meat free cooking school Sutra Kitchen.

They join Gelf Alderson, executive chef at River Cottage; Emily Watkins, head chef of The Kingham Plough; eco restauranteur Arthur Potts-Dawson; leading food writer and chef Rosie Birkett; and GBBO contestant Chetna Makan.

If all that talk of food gets you hungry, GO! Organic Festival’s indoor organic marketplace has you covered.

The following are just some of the organic food and drink stalls available: Abel & Cole, Alara, Balanced Nature, Bio-tiful Dairy, Calon Wen Organic Dairy, Celtic Bakers, Clearspring, Cocoa Loco, Community Foods (Tarantella and Crazy Jack), Cream O’Galloway, Divine Chocolate, Helen Browning’s Organic, Honest Organic, Infinity Foods, Nutri-Fungi, Peelham Farm, Produce World, Pukka, Pull The Cork, Purearth, Riverford, Sunfresh, The Tomato Stall, & London and Scottish International (hosting a pop up bar), Wyld Wood Cider (Westons Cider), and Yogi Tea.

We think that a festival without beer is a really bad idea, so our friends at Stroud Brewery will be hosting an Organic Beer Festival where you can enjoy over 40 organic beers. There will be wine and cider too!

Beer’s not your thing?  There’s plenty of activities to keep the whole family busy, including a raft of big-names and up and coming bands on the main stage; celebrity talks; children’s entertainers; fantastic feature areas like Meet The Farmer and the Clearspring Japanese Garden; Abel & Cole’s picnic area; circus acts; free fair rides; a children’s farm; hands-on workshops; bug hunts and so much more.
