Westfield today unveiled its month long celebration of the city’s booming food scene in partnership with London Evening Standard Food Month (LFM). This June, Westfield is inviting visitors on a food journey across both of its London centres, as well as to the Westfield Open Air Cinema within the Night Markets of Kensington Palace Gardens.

To start LFM with a bang, Westfield London is launching a Food Truck Festival from 1 – 4 June. Located within the Atrium of Westfield London, visitors to the festival can taste flavours and dishes from some of London’s best Food Trucks as well as sampling an array of the centre’s restaurants who will be popping up with new concepts and offers throughout the event. The Food Truck Festival will later head east to Westfield Stratford City from 22 – 25 June to close London Food Month with a whole new Food Truck offer and lots of entertainment.

Meanwhile, foodie film lovers will get the chance to experience The Westfield Open Air Cinema for 12 nights from 7 – 18 June at LFM’s Night Markets. Set against the dramatic backdrop of London ‘s iconic Kensington Palace, this summer’s newest outdoor cinema is screening the ultimate line up of movies that offer something for everyone, choose from Disney Studio and Disney·Pixar family favourites,  Marvel Super Hero blockbusters, Star Wars adventures from Lucasfilm,  2017 Oscar winners and all time classics. 

Westfield’s Chief Marketing Officer, Myf Ryan, comments: “Westfield is delighted to partner with London Food Month to bring our capital a line-up of fabulous food events throughout June.
