Tom Kerridge comments, “I’m so looking forward to BBC Good Food’s Feast at the Tower of London. Firstly because it’s at the Tower of London, secondly because it’s in the moat, and thirdly, because there will be loads of street food, artisan producers and great chefs!”
Laura Biggs, MD of River Street Events, says, “Our partnership with Historic Royal Palaces goes from strength to strength. Our August and December Festivals at Hampton Court Palace are firmly placed on the festival calendar attracting jointly over 37,000 people last year. The progression to the Tower of London is so exciting and we feel truly privileged to run an event at one of London’s most famous landmarks.
