Penny Appeal makes a stir at the UK’s biggest ever Halal Food Festival
Foodie event in London draws crowds of thousands over two days
London’s biggest ever Halal Food Festival enjoyed measured success on the 19th and 20th of August at the Tobacco Dock in East London.
The festival is the largest of its kind in the UK and played host to cuisine from all over the world with 100 international exhibitors present, with thousands of visitors enjoying the festivities and the lip-smacking food on offer - it was deemed a remarkable success.
#TeamOrange attended the festival in aid of Penny Appeal’s Thirst Relief programme, to raise money for people in need of clean water solutions in the developing world.
#TeamOrange volunteers offered freshly squeezed orange juice of which around 1,500 cups sold; slushies, orange themed jalebis and candyfloss also proved popular with revellers. The volunteers provided information on Penny Appeal’s Thirst Relief project to curious visitors.
Live cooking demonstrations took place in the cookery theatre, with a number of different chefs offering valuable insights and mouth-watering displays that got visitors’ tongues tingling.
The festival also played host to a unique Man vs Food - Halal Eat Offs competition, a ‘world-class’ burger tasting lounge and a chillout area & mocktail bar.
