Great Nordic Feast


20-22 October 2017

The Great Nordic Feast invites everyone to experience the best tastes from Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland. The feast will also feature the cuisine from some of the more unknown Nordic countries such as the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.

A collaboration of renowned chefs and gastronomic experts from across the Nordic regions and the UK will combine their skills to serve up a creative Nordic eating experience for all food lovers. The autumn feast will be infused with Nordic flora, talks and music and the cooking will take place using traditional Nordic techniques, inside Scandinavian style tipi tents over an open fire in the middle of each tipi, located on Southbank Centre’s Festival Terrace.

The Nordic Feast allows guests to get up close and personal with the wonders of the Nordic cuisine all the while the renowned and immensely skillfuls chefs and culinaries talk, bake or cook away.

Tickets for both days are on sale now!
