Live Comedy Host - Eshaan Akbar


Eshaan Akbar is a regular voice on BBC Asian Network where he hosts a weekly show on Saturday as well as filling in frequently on the Breakfast and Drivetime shows. He has also appeared on shows such as Mock the Week, QI, The Now Show and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order. 
Previously of Barclays and Merton Council, Eshaan holds a Masters in Global Governance and Public Policy and an undergraduate degree in Economics, Finance and Management, and has written articles for The Guardian, The Times and The Huffington Post. He is also a former Bollywood dance choreographer. Is there anything he can’t do? Yes. He can’t tie balloons once he’s blown them up. Which made his job as a children’s entertainer very short-lived. 
"A fine comic entertainer, an intelligent maker of points and a wealth of fascinating facts”  The Scotsman

Street Food

A wide range of vendors will be curated by Street Food Warehouse - here's an idea of what to expect!

Thursday nights are all about short film


Thursday evenings at Film & Food Fest will feature a special showcase of short movies from some of the region's finest independent filmmakers. Highlighting the work of local creatives, giving their films a major platform and giving audiences an exclusive chance to see some fantastic new cinema! 
The charity we are supporting by donating £2 from every ticket sold on Thursday nights is The Short Sounds Film Festival, a not-for-profit organisation managed by volunteers who are committed to celebrating cinematic music and sound. They highlight the craft and artistry behind the cinematic soundscapes which immerse, inspire and captivate us.
