Started by Lara in 2007, Cakehole bakes delicious cakes, bakes, and treats, fresh every day from the South London kitchen, using the best local, organic and fairtrade ingredients. Cakes like carrot cake with lemon mascarpone cream cheese icing, apple cake with cider-soaked sultanas, baked cheesecake, fruit cupcakes and 100% cacao brownies, are produced in small batches using traditional methods, for your delectation.


In 2007 Dorset fishermen Matt & Steve cooked their first paella outside their new cafe on Chesil Beach, since then Quiddles Paella has been a regular feature at the Festival serving their take on a Spanish classic.

Fab Fairies and Wicked Tarts

At Fab Fairies and Wicked Tarts it’s all about the taste. They are London cake makers committed to providing delicious and beautiful treats and make a range of sweet delights that look great but more importantly they taste fab. Be sure to check out their science themed treats they have on offer!

Opera Ice Cream

For afters, or starters, or even both, try Opera Ice Cream. Kerry is an opera singer, Spasko an ice-dreamer, and together they produce a homemade, locally sourced cold wonder. Identified last year by the Palmer's Green Community webmaster as 'the world’s best ice cream'. Opera Ice Cream has since added homemade lemonade and brownies to their menu.

800 degrees pizza

Freshly made to order, authentic wood fired pizza from our custom made oven. Their entire menu is woodfired to perfection, infusing each item with just the right amount of smokiness. 800 degrees start with the highest-quality ingredients, scratch dough, fresh produce and artisan-quality meats and cheeses, creating an offering as authentic and delicious as it is remarkably diverse. The result is craveable and irresistibly delicious craft pizza!
