West London’s Street Food Love Affair Continues

If you live anywhere near Shepherd’s Bush Market, or are in the know about London’s street food scene, then you’ve probably heard of Feast.

Earlier this summer we announced that Feast had set up a new sister event, Little Feast, in Shepherd’s Bush Yard right by the Goldhawk Road end of our market. Well they’ve now decided to stay a longer than was initially planned!

So if you’ve not wined and dined at Little Feast yet, or you have and loved it, there’s still a chance for you to regularly treat yourself to some great food, drinks, and music (check out the clip above of Little Feast in all its yummy glory).

As you can see from the video, Little Feast have eye-catching huts that each serve amazingly delicious food from around the world, and an indoor bar area, dubbed The Arch, to keep you warm when the days are shorter – what more do you need for a fab night out?

Come on by and be a part of the movement that’s making West London’s street food scene just that little bit more exciting.

Little Feast
