Winterville Announces Incredible Street Feast Food & Drink For 2018
Returning to Clapham Common from November 15th, Winterville is bringing London's true alternative festive experience once again for five weeks of unmissable fun – with a huge range of street food, drinks and entertainment shaping things up unlike anything else in the capital.
This year’s food line-up features some big new names alongside last year’s greatest hits. Expect a new-and-improved Street Feast arena with 10 street food favourites, a further six parking up at Truck Stop plus a pop-up pudding shop, the Chin Chin Café.
Across the board, Winterville traders are plotting some unbeatable comfort food for this year’s menu. Get ready for globe-spanning street food specials with a festive twist: Up In My Grill’s fondue steak sandwiches with juicy Bavette steak, confit onion, cheese fondue, garlic butter and bone marrow gravy, INK’sspiced Christmas fish nuggets with sweet chilli and ginger dip, Raclette Brothers’ plates of molten Raclette cheese with roasted potatoes, pickles and pancetta, Born & Raised’s sourdough pizza topped with stilton, butternut squash, sage and roast walnut and much more.
Sweet treats also reign supreme. Go to Chin Chin Labs’ new mad-cap cafe for DIY s’mores – giant home-made marshmallows on sticks for you to roast over the fire pits yourself, served with biscuit crumble and gooey chocolate sauce. There’s also crispy Churros with Belgian chocolate dipping sauce from Love Churros and a hot and fresh doughnut bar from You Doughnut.
Winterville's winter watering holes will be serving everything from Boozy Hot Chocolate to spiced Hot Wine. Start with a craft beer at Brew Camp, grab a Frozen Toffee Vodka from one of our Happy Cabins, then finish inside Winterville’s cosy pop-up pub, Bar Humbug, for killer cocktails and plenty of late-night entertainment.
Today’s announcement add to an already stellar array of entertainment and festive fun heading to Clapham Common. From big screen favouritesBackyard Cinema, who will open their Christmas Labrinth each and every week for special festive screenings, to Plonk Golf and the ever-popular Ice Rink – all will be in full force for 2018! Boogie on wheels with Twisted Wheels Roller Disco, finish any last minute Christmas shopping at the expansive Solo Craft Fair and lock yourself in with a sensational midweek entertainment programme from Lucha Britannia Mexican Wrestling, Rabbit Rabbit Comedy, Chivaree Circus, Funzing talks and much much more. There’s fun for all the family too, with your toddler’s favourite ravers Big Fish Little Fishproviding day-glo vibes, theatrical escapades from Bus King, an extra special concert from Lambeth Live Explosion (inviting young musicians to get involved and perform in the Spiegeltent) and educational entertainment fromOkido amongst others. That's not to mention special pop-up events like Groundswell Arts’ Story Lab who give little ones the chance to design their own sleigh, reindeer and fly with elves against a magical backdrop thanks to their Green Screen technology, Little Bird’s Fun Quarter (returning for the opening weekend) allowing little ones the chance to learn new circus skills, craft Christmas decorations and enjoy a glitter tattoo applied by one of Santa’s elves, all for free, and Mrs H and the Singalong Band who will have people of all ages exercising their tonsils!
Packed to the rafters with incredible free nights for the diary, Winterville is undoubtably the home of festive fun. Kicking off festivities in true style, Winterville will play host to the wildest opening weekend the pop-up town has ever seen. The one and only Melanie C AKA the iconic Sporty Spice will start the party by taking to the Spiegeltent decks for a trip down memory lane with an extra special 90s Mixtape DJ set. Elsewhere over the weekend, big ballad supremos Ultimate Power are shaping up to bring the ultimate sing-a-long session to the Common, while the Two Brewers Takeover are primed and ready to get the masses grooving with London Gay Big Band who are set to stamp out those November blues.
Every Friday and Saturday night, the fun continues – with the likes of the godfather of club culture Norman Jay MBE, founding father of Soul II Soul Jazzie B, party starters The Cuban Brothers, selector extraordinaire DJ Yoda, and London’s favourite funk soul & disco spinners South London Soul Train, plus many more resident DJs still to be announced. London's top club nights sit pride of place for special Winterville spectaculars, with pop heavyweightsGuilty Pleasures and the UK’s longest running party Bugged Out providing dancefloor fillers every weekend. Sing-a-long dons Massaoke will be at the reigns every Thursday, and Karaoke Hole on Saturdays, for all your crooning needs, while eyes will be down for Indeedy Musical Bingo who will pop in for a Saturday night one-off special.
Some of the biggest names in the LGBTQ+ scene will be taking over the Spiegeltent every Sunday, with Mighty Hoopla’s Christmas Jumpergeddon,Mariah & Friendz and U Okay Hun? on hand to deliver the big hits and winter warmers that make Winterville the only club destination you need this Christmastime too!
