Join OnBlackheath Festival For A Mouth-Watering Weekend


OnBlackheath, in partnership with John Lewis, is hosting a weekend full of edible entertainment on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September.

The festival, which boasts an impressive music line-up, is tantalising taste buds with a host of talented chefs who will be cooking up a storm over the weekend in the John Lewis Food Village. Curated by Masterchef finalist and private chef Tony Rodd, the food line-up features a number of guest chefs from all walks of life, making sure there is something to suit every palate.


Saturday’s cookery line-up will feature chefs such as Jane Devonshire – the winner of MasterChef 2016. Jane’s catalogue of recipes ranges from the modest Roast Chicken to the more indulgent Fresh Lobster Pasta with Tomato Chilli and Tarragon. Also making an appearance on the first day of the festival will be Gary Maclean, who won MasterChef: The Professionals last year.

The highlight on Sunday will be Michael Bremner, who has appeared on BBC2’s Great British Menu, and is the owner and head chef at Brighton’s 64 Degrees restaurant. In his critically acclaimed restaurant, Bremner puts an emphasis on patrons sharing small plates of food with an aim of creating a more social dining atmosphere.

The John Lewis Food Village will also be home to award-winning street food, pop-up restaurants and the local Meantime Craft Brewery Bar – ensuring visitors are both well fed and well hydrated.

The festival’s impressive food-based line-up is complimented by an equally impressive music line-up. Saturday will see the likes of Travis, Metronomy, De La Soul, Kate Tempest and Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club take to the stage. On Sunday the main stage will feature The Libertines, Seasick Steve, Jake Bugg, KT Tunstall and Fun Lovin’ Criminals so you’re sure to find something to jump around to – once the food has digested, of course.
