The term "Beanfeast" dates back to 6 July 1773, when King George III arrived at Woolwich by barge and proclaimed an annual holiday after enjoying an open-air feast of beans and bacon. Our modern Beanfeast is a unique recreation of the feast, 251 years later, with a food-filled programme curated by food writer Anna Sulan Masing.

A day of talks, discussions, demos and workshops, plus a cookbook shop with book signings and a mini marketplace. Choose from a selection of talks for just £5 or make a plan to spend the day with us with our Beanfeast pass options ranging from £14 to £30.


Choose from these talks with top chefs, at £5 each or get a Talks Pass for £14.


Participate in these hands-on workshops where you can learn to pickle ingredients, make a classic Nepalese dish or learn about your hormone health.

Places at workshops are limited and need to purchased individually.
Workshops are not included in our Beanfeast pass options.
