The first festival celebrating the nation’s much loved treat - the humble biscuit - will take place in London’s Brunswick centre near Russell Square this weekend, from June 8 - 10 2012.
The British Biscuit Festival will attract biscuit enthusiasts from around the country who can indulge in everything related to the iconic snack, we so often enjoy with an essential cup of British tea.
Visitors will be able to take part in one of the highlights of the festival - Build-a-Biscuit Workshops, where they will be able to create their perfect biscuit with help from The Cake Conjurer.
There will also be a Terrific Biscuit Tin Tournament for those who can dunk biscuits in tea without them going soggy, eat a biscuit without licking away the crumbs, and even reciting a sonnet with a mouth full of digestives.
Saturday will see the performance of a Tea Dance and a farmer’s market, and on Sunday visitors will be able to enjoy music from a live band.
There will also be a Tea and Biscuit Social, where people can sit back and relax in a pop-up vintage cafe designed by The Bijoux Editrix and call on agony aunt Dai Gestive. There will also be stalls on biscuit science, spin cookie art, biscuits from around the world, street food biscuits and tea liquors.
