Theatre of Food 2016

The biggest and best festival of the year is just 10 days away, and we’re already sorting out the tents and the blow-up mattresses for Electric Picnic 2016.
Two things have grown in tandem over the years as EP has blossomed: the first thing is the sheer size of the festival – when we first started going you wouldn’t have much more than 25,000 people at Stradbally. This year, the 50,000 tickets were gone in a day.
But what has also grown is the size of Theatre of Food at Electric Picnic. Years ago, we used to hold TofF in a wee tent. In 2016, we will have a packed itinerary of the greatest chefs in Ireland in a bumper circus tent, plus superstar drummer Ralph Rolle of Chic, who will be showing us how he makes his amazing cookies, as well as twirling the drumsticks. We will have musicians, surprise guests, and the most amazing food from the most amazing chefs. Don’t miss it, and plan who you want to see by checking out the whole Theatre of Food itinerary on our website,
What has helped to make Theatre of Food a success has been the support of our sponsors, so step forward Ardkeen Stores, who provision our kitchen, Kenwood Ireland, who gear us up with lots of fab kit, Failte Ireland, whose support has allowed us to get our hands on a fab curtain for our stage, Goatsbridge Trout, and the Doyle Collection Kitchen, whose team of hard-working chefs will ensure that everything that comes out of the TofF kitchen is super-delicious. Thanks to you all.
