We had lots of fun at Charters International Food Festival this year and can’t wait to tell you all about it.
This very successful 2-day event was held in a gorgeous floating beer garden at Town Bridge in Peterborough and Banjaraa had the pleasure to join over 20 traders and hundreds of customers. Fancy seeing us mentioned in ‘Peterborough Telegraph’? Have a read just here; ‘Sun shines on Peterborough pub's international food festival’.
A Celebration of International Cuisine
The international food festival showcased a diverse range of delicious culinary delights from all around the world and the attendees had the opportunity to try dishes from various cultures, including Asian, European and Middle Eastern. The participating traders brought their unique flavours and cooking techniques, creating a vibrant and flavourful experience for all. And it smelled so good!
It’s all about the atmosphere
To boost the festive mood even more, the event featured live entertainment by Eclectic Ballroom. They added a nice background to the excitement and enjoyment of the attendees with their energetic performances. The combination of delicious food, lively music, and the sun undoubtedly created a memorable experience for everyone present.
Charters: The Floating Pub
This international food festival was not the first of its kind in Peterborough and the pub's unique location and charming ambience provided a delightful backdrop for the celebration. Charters has become a popular destination for food and drink enthusiasts in Peterborough, offering a diverse menu and a wide selection of drinks.

The Significance of Food Festivals
Food festivals nowadays are more than just opportunities to indulge in delicious cuisine. They are a priceless opportunity for cultural exchange that is bringing people together through the universal language of food. These events allow attendees to explore different culinary traditions, broaden their palates and appreciate the diversity of unique flavours from different parts of the world.
Banjaraa’s Food Truck
We really hope that Banjaraa's presence added a touch of spice and exoticism to the event, further enriching the culinary experience with our Indian-inspired dishes. We’ve received some lovely reviews from festival-goers for our flavorful dishes so we couldn’t be happier!
What’s next, you ask?
The international food festival held at a pub in Peterborough was a resounding success. Such events not only satisfy the taste buds but also provide opportunities for cultural exploration and appreciation.

It’s safe to say Peterborough is ready for a food park similar to the ones in other big cities like Kerb London, Box Park London, Dining Digbeth Birmingham or Trinity Leeds. All the city needs is for someone to start it. Is that you?
