Win tickets to the Christmas Foodies Festival with Snig's Kitchen

I love good food and going out, so I find many of the food themed events which come to the capital a great way of trying new things and enjoying myself. I have been to previous Foodies Festival fairs, one of which I reviewed back in 2011. The events are fun, with lots of food and drink available to scoff on the spot, to take home and with plenty scope to learn something new from the various tastings and cooking demonstrations on offer. 

This year, the Foodies Festival people are putting on their very first Christmas event. Held over 3 days (28th, 29th and 30th November) in Spitalfields at the Old Truman Brewery, the event will incorporate a number of brilliant attractions:

- A Christmas Bumper Quiz will take place at 5pm daily, you will need to register your team in advance. 
- Be part of a "Christmas jumper gang" and have a group Crimbo Jumper picture taken in the Festival photo booth.
- Sing Christmas songs and carols. Get yourself into the Christmas spirit!

- Learn how to dance the "Gay Gordon" with ceilidh dancing and live music from the Entertainment Stage.
-The "Producers Grotto" where you can discover lovely artisan product which you can try, buy and take home (or give away as Christmas presents!).

- Craft Beer Market with pop-up breweries and small producers.

- The Pudding Hall chock full with p√Ętisseries and expert chocolatiers selling eggnog tarts, marzipan bonbons and macaron and a breathtaking life-size Gingerbread House serving ginger beer and roasted marshmallows.

- A stage for live music (artists and timetable have yet to be announced).

- The "Elf Cookery School" for children under 12, where kids can learn to bake snowballs and decorate gingerbread men, cookies and cupcakes to leave out for Santa (or just scoff immediately!).
- Cake and Bake workshops for grown up Bake Off fans.
