Oh, to be sipping rosé and gorging on fresh fish by the water… If you can’t make it to the Riviera, head to Battersea Power Station and join in the fun at the London Seafood Festival. Taking over for five days only, the event will see masterclasses, chef collaborations, ticketed dinners and a selection of family-friendly pop-ups appear on the banks of the River Thames this June.
Events include an oyster masterclass on a boat hosted by Wright Brothers, a spice and fish masterclass at Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea, a sake tasting with Japanese Seafood Bites, a brewery tour, and a sustainable seafood supper at No. 29 Power Station West. Tapas Brindisa Batttersea will be hosting an intimate and interactive dining experience, where Head Chef Yago will bring the seafood flavours of the North of Spain to life with a five-course menu paired with Basque Txacoli Wine. Meanwhile Boom Cycle will be hosting a number of outdoor spin classes against the backdrop of Battersea Power Station, followed by lunch at neighbouring restaurant Tonkotsu. A number of sea films will also be screened at the Archlight Cinema, including A Fish Called Wanda and Fisherman’s Friends. Another exciting event will see chef Vivek Singh (of Cinnamon Kitchen) and Asma Khan (of Darjeeling Express) joining forces to create a seafood feast, kicking off with a screening of Asma’s Chef’s Table followed by a Q&A with both chefs.
There’s plenty for children to do and see, including appearances from Ocho the Octopus and The London Mermaid, alongside and sea-inspired balloon masterpieces from Miss Ballooniverse. Cooking demonstrations and live music will be taking place throughout the festival, as well as a variety of seafood-focused street food pop-ups from some of the city’s best restaurants, including Cinnamon Kitchen, No. 29 and Fiume.
