Seafood Festival Launches at Battersea Power Station in June

Enjoy lots of foodie events for all the family


London Seafood Festival arrives at Battersea Power Station this summer, offering an array of events including oyster shucking classes, chef collaborations and a selection of different pop-ups suitable for all the family.

The five-day-long festival will be taking place on the banks of the River Thames at Circus West Village, the first chapter in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, which is quickly becoming one of the most exciting new food and drink destinations in London.

Restaurants will be taking part and offering special menus, chef collaborations, ticketed dinners and seafood masterclasses from some of the leading seafood specialists in London throughout the festival, which takes place from Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th June.

There will also be plenty on offer for the little urchins, with mermaids on site, a giant bubble maker and workshops for the children to make shell necklaces and decorate biscuits.

During the festival, The Luna Cinema will have an outside screen offering families a whale of a time with an array of sea related films next to The Thames. A special sing-a-long edition of “The Little Mermaid” will also feature as part of the line-up.

Helen Carr, Leasing Director, F&B and Leisure at Battersea Power Station, said: “I cannot think of a better place to hold a seafood festival in London than at Battersea Power Station beside The Thames. With the growing number of restaurants, shops, cafes, bars and businesses opening at Circus West Village, the festival is yet another reason this area is quickly becoming one of London’s most exciting new destinations.”
