Straddling the edges of the City of London and hipster Shoreditch, the new venue is a stone’s throw from Spitalfields and Brick Lane Markets and will take place over the last weekend in June; 26th – 28th. A busy time for Britain, Best of Britannia will be pay homage to Wimbledon in the outdoor food court with a feast of classically British food and drink, including cream teas from leading tea brand, Tregothnan.

Also returning is heritage footwear brand Cheaney producing beautiful, premium work and smart footwear for men and women.
Newcomers to Best of Britannia London include jewellery brand Alice Robson Jewellery, who create beautiful designs from pendants to engagement rings using gemstones such as Rubies, Tourmalines and unusual Diamonds – Alice will be onsite over the weekend to discuss designs. Best of Britannia will even make sure your dogs are kept warm with The Liberty Kensington Trench from Baker & Bray.
FOOD AND DRINK:
Amongst those keeping the masses fed and watered from the food court with only the highest quality food and drink will be Fever Tree, back with their delicious selection of tonics & gin as well as raspberry infused premium gin brand and BOB first timer, Pinkster Gin. And back by popular demand, five times distilled malt Albion will no doubt once again go down very smoothly.

On a musical note, Hoxton FM will be DJing and broadcasting live from BOB while DJ legend and house music phenomenon, Norman Jay MBE, will be taking to the decks from 7pm on Saturday night for a masterclass in ‘Rare Groove’ – a phrase coined by the man himself in the 1980s when he rose to prominence playing unlicensed warehouse parties.
