Introducing The London Coffee Festival

Thursday, April 30, 2015

May Bank Holiday weekend is almost upon us and, with it, families up and down the country will inevitably be racking their brains for something to do.

Well, if you’re looking for something different to occupy your days off, something other than overcrowded theme parks, laborious DIY jobs, castles, beaches, museums, and, worst of all, stationary motorway traffic (we’ve all been there), then we have a novel suggestion for all you coffee buffs out there…

Why not try popping down to the 2015 London Coffee Festival?


This vibrant new event, which kicks off UK Coffee Week, has been established to celebrate the capital’s bustling and exciting coffee scene.

As the promotion for the festival proclaims, with “over 22,000 visitors expected, The London Coffee Festival promises to be an unmissable event for discerning coffee lovers and those working in the coffee scene.”

So what exactly can attendees of the London Coffee Festival expect?

Well once you head down to the entrance at The Old Truman Brewery on Hanbury Street (Brick Lane E1 6QR), you will be confronted with over 250 stalls chock-full with gourmet food and artisan coffee.  

These stalls will be offering tastings (of course) and street food, coffee-based cocktails, interactive workshops and demonstrations from some of the world’s leading baristas.

In addition to this conventional festival fayre, there will also be DJs, live music and entertainment, and coffee-based art exhibitions.

Visitors will also gain access to Milk & Sugar, the new festival feature showcasing some of the most inspirational brands spanning from fashion to design and food.

We guarantee you won’t go home hungry, thirsty, or unentertained!

The festival will begin with two industry days (Thurs 30 April and Fri 01 May), and kick off its public celebration from 5pm - 8pm on Friday 01 May.

An Espresso Martini Launch Party will take place from 8pm to 10pm (please note some festival zones will be closed during this time).

You can find out more – and purchase tickets – by visiting  

Alternatively, you can follow the London Coffee Festival on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Mixcloud.
