Food Junctions is a new 'festival within a festival' bringing together an extraordinary group of people to celebrate a subject close to all of our hearts (and stomachs): food.

Part of the Reveal festival in Kings Cross and the Camley Street Natural Park's 25th Anniversary Festival, Food Junctions has been organised by staff and students at UCL (University College London) in collaboration with Camden Council, local schools, businesses and campaign groups.

Jam-packed with a smorgasbord of free events, Food Junctions is all about celebrating food and its place in the lives of Londoners. With over 200 contributors the festival will feature a wide range of talks, hands-on workshops, demonstrations, tasting sessions, art and architecture installations, performances, films and much more.

The festival is designed to promote healthy living and local food production as well as to encourage visitors to explore the world of food politics, culture and research.

Some tasty teasers from the festival programme:

Growing wine inside the M25: Urban Wines
