The National Geographic Traveller Food Festival is all about celebrating the global nature of food. Organised by the publisher of the UK’s National Geographic Traveller Food magazine, which was launched in 2018, the event gives attendees the chance to explore the world through the prism of culinary experiences.

Each festival offers a varied programme of events and showcases top food personalities, while bringing a buffet of global delicacies to the capital. See chefs in action preparing signature dishes, as well as enjoy demonstrations and interviews on the main stage. An experience area offers a hands-on chance to learn new cooking techniques and take part in workshops.

Participate in masterclasses and find out how to prepare the world’s most exciting dishes, or listen to popular food writers and cookbook authors give talks in the speakers’ corner. Plus, explore an expansive exhibition space containing everything related to food and drink under the sun. From samples to cooking tutorials, it’s all at the National Geographic Traveller Food Festival.

In 2019 attendees were treated to demos and discussions from such culinary greats as Raymond Blanc, Andi Oliver, John Torode, Gennaro Contaldo and many others.

After being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak, organisers revealed the National Geographic Traveller Food Festival would return to London from 16 – 17 July 2022 at the Business Design Centre.

Expect the two-day event to be bigger and better than ever. This edition will even have two areas for masterclasses – The Tarragon and Cinnamon Theatres. With a chance to explore new cuisines and break down food barriers, the National Geographic Traveller Food Festival is a truly diverse culinary journey not to be missed.


The National Geographic Traveller Food Festival is scheduled to run across two days from 16 – 17 July 2022.

The National Geographic Traveller Food Festival is being held at London's Business Design Centre, which is located between Upper Street and Liverpool Road in Islington.

Tickets for the National Geographic Traveller Food Festival 2022 are on sale now. Original tickets remain valid for rescheduled dates.
