On Thursday 26 May Auction Against Hunger will return for the fourth year in a row to raise money for the restaurant industry’s charity of choice, Action Against Hunger. This time around the event will be held at the new Street Feast venue Hawker House in Canada Water where top chefs will cook up street food style dishes.
Tickets to this year’s event go on sale at 11 am on 17 March and are £60, which includes entry to the event, six dishes from the menu before 8 pm (and free for all after!), pint-sized cocktails from the Hawker House bars, and even more drinks from Wondering Wine Co, Kamm & Sons and Sipsmith Gin. All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the charity.
