Leave your wellies at home: this festival only requires empty stomachs. Hot on the heels of Chiswick's Savour festival which ends this week, Balham launches its celebration of gourmet delights.
A fortnight of events kicks off on Sunday with The Big Launch on Hildreth Street. Alongside multiple stalls from local restaurants and retailers, there will plenty to marvel at while you munch away with displays of street dance, magic, ukulele playing, choral singing and balloon modelling. At 12-6 on the same day, Balham Bowls Club on Ramsden Road will be holding a hog roast.
Other events over the course of the festival include free cinema screenings at the Exhibit, a food quiz, wine tasting, children's cookery lessons and a food and wine matching dinner at Harrison's, the sibling to Chiswick's Sam's Brasserie.
