Set to be a one-day celebration of all things between two pieces of bread, the Hackney-based food fair will bring together eight of the capital’s top sandwich hawkers, including Brindisa, Deeney’s, Grill My Cheese, Le Bao, Project Sandwich and the Piadina Project.
There’ll be taster-sized portions for those who are playing the long game, or you can go all in with a hearty portion, like Brindisa’s chorizo rolls, haggis toasties from Deeney’s, or Italian flatbreads from the Piadina project. And if you’re feeling extra-serious about your sarnies, you can join in judging a competition for best sandwich.
Once you’ve had time to digest all that, you can refresh yourself with a healthy selection of craft beers while taking in some live music, and polish it all off with an ice-cream sandwich.
Sandwich Fest is set to very much be a labour of love, gathering the bulk of its funding from the sandwich-loving public who contributed over £2k to a Kickstarter to help the event become a reality, across just two days.
Where: Courtyard at SPACE Gallery Courtyard, Warburton Street, Hackney E8 3RH.
When: 20 May 2017, from 12-4.30pm and 5-10pm
How much: Tickets to the event will be £9 plus a booking fee, and includes a taster sandwich and a drink.
