London Coffee Festival celebrates its 11th anniversary this year, bringing coffee lovers and the coffee industry together at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch.
The information below is from the cancelled 2020 event.
What’s on at London Coffee Festival 2020
A lot of fine coffee, obviously. And we do mean a lot. There’s plenty of fancy food on offer too. Grab a reusable cup and follow the aroma of over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stands. Pick up new skills from world-class baristas, drop into interactive and sip coffee-based cocktails.
Highlights for 2020 include the Coffee Masters contest, a gathering of Europe’s finest coffee roasters at The Roasters Village and Latte Art Live. There are some pretty niche offerings at London Coffee Festival too like the Plant-Based Smackdown and Latte Art Karaoke. And there’s even an exhibition of coffee-themed art.
Tickets to London Coffee Festival 2020
The standard admission cost is £18.50 in advance or (£25.00 on the door) for a session ticket. Sessions are timed slots that vary per day. Choose between a brunch, lunch or evening session. Session admission grants you access to all the stalls, plus workshops in The Lab and unlimited food and coffee tasting. 20% of the ticket price goes to a charity bringing clean water to coffee-growing communities.
If you want to get the most out of the day, you can opt for a VIP ticket for £34.00 in advance (£42.00). That ticket buys you fast-track entrance, access to VIP areas including a secret garden, a coffee cocktail token, and access to all event features.
And if you’re really on a caffeine buzz, you can buy Weekend VIP tickets for £80.00. This has the same perks as the VIP day ticket but for all three days.
Thursday 23 and Friday 24 April daytime will be open for industry-only pass holders. But you can buy tickets for sessions from 4pm on Friday.
Old Truman Brewery is a short distance from Shoreditch High Street (Overground), Old Street (Underground, Northern Line, Bank Branch) or Liverpool Street (Mainline Railway, Central, Hammersmith & City and Circle Lines).
