Artists and Crew Catering
Your Kit Or Ours?
At bigger festivals, the promoter provides a suitably-sized canteen marquee, tables, chairs, electricity water, a dry store, a dedicated toilet and access to backstage showers. We’ll bring the kitchen, all utensils, refrigeration and staff. At some smaller festivals, we will agree to supply a kitchen tent, and can hire a 45ft marquee to you as a canteen. We do have our own generator, but at most festivals the electrician and H&S team prefer to keep all supplies under their own control backstage.
We’ve found that for smaller festivals, we can work from a guest list with a checkable box for each meal. For larger festivals, either coded wristbands, or meal vouchers are the low tech options to validate your crew and artist’s eligibility. We are also happy to work with swipe card readers etc.
Due to the commitment, effort and up-front cost we incur to prepare for your festival; we will ask you for a reasonable up-front deposit.
Exciting, Nutritious, Filling Menus
Please see our sample menus, but don’t worry if you don’t see what you like - we can start from scratch and devise menus to fit your wishes. Or you may prefer to leave it to us so we can use ingredients locally-sourced on the day. We can cater for all food preferences: vegan, veggie, GF, dairy free,” no nuts” and other dietary requirements that your guests may have.
Sorry, but due to the activities of spammers, we are having to be a bit crafty about how we show our contact email address. Just remove every other character from this: CcLlAaRrEe@@CcAaFfEeCcHhAaMmEeLlEeOoNn..CcOo..UuKk. It should read "clare" then the at sign, then the name of our business without a space between the first and second word, then .co.uk. Thanks for making the effort!
Or phone "Oh seven ate nein won sicks oh nein seven sicks five". Bet you worked out what that all means!
