FAQ

BOOKING / TICKETS

How do I book?
Easy: go to Book Your Trip and click on the date you’re interested in.

How will I get my tickets?
We will email you confirmation of your booking along with your reference shortly after your order has gone through. Your name is all you’ll need to gain entry to the event.

What if I have to cancel my booking?
Tickets are transferable to another person – do just let us know on hello@globalfeast2012.com. We regret that due to the limited capacity of the event, we cannot refund your ticket once purchased.

Can my company block book part of the table for my employees and clients?
Absolutely. Do contact us on hello@globalfeast2012.com or call Sinead on 07795 363 661 to discuss your exact requirements.

Can I book it separately during the day?
Absolutely. Please contact hello@globalfeast2012 as soon as possible to discuss. Special meals are available upon request.

Will you have a TV on during the opening ceremony?
Yes.

Why is there a booking fee?
Latitudinal Cuisine, the producer of the event, is a non-profit organisation and the Global Feast has been priced to cover the costs of putting on the event. The small booking fee is to cover the costs of the Paypal charges. We would love to be able to absorb these charges but as a non-profit, we simply can’t; sorry!

TRAVEL

How do I get to Global Feast?
The venue has excellent public transport links. See map above.

Stratford High Street: DLR
Stratford Station: Overground, Central and Jubilee Lines
Stratford International: Trains from South Eastern Rail Services from St. Pancras Station and Kent

There are numerous buses on Stratford High Street.

The Tube and DLR services will run around 60 minutes later than normal on all days, including Sundays.

During the Olympic Games, the Tube will run extra evening services on the Jubilee, Central and District lines. There will be more trains running in the late evening from Friday 3 August, when events start at the Olympic Stadium.

Can I drive there?
Not recommended; there are serious parking restrictions for the Olympics.

Can I cycle?
Great idea. Nearest Boris Bikes are at the far South end of the High Street. See mapĀ here.

Does the event have disabled access?
Yes, Global Feast is fully accessible for disabled guests. To discuss your requirements in detail so we can ensure you have the best event ever, please email Sinead on hello@globalfeast2012.com or call 07795 363 661

LOGISTICS

Can I sit with my friends or will I be sitting with strangers?
Pre-booking your preferred seat or region will be done on a 1st-come 1st-serve basis – get there early to reserve your city of departure. We envisage that people might decide to travel through the continents (and their inhabitants) over the course of the evening – and agree to swap seats with each other between courses.

Global Feast is in a courtyard? Will I get cold or wet?
No. The event is sheltered by a marquee whose walls can fully retract to enjoy the lovely outdoor atmosphere.

Is there a bar at Global Feast?
Yes. The Worldscape installation also has a World Bar. We will sell beers, wines and drinks from around the world.

Can I bring my own booze?
No.

Can I bring my children?
Absolutely. We regret that we cannot offer a special children’s ticket or menu but you are more than welcome to book them a regular ticket. If they’re small enough they’ll love running around under the crazy table – it’s awesome down there.

Will this be the most awesome night of my life?
Yes. Apart from maybe your wedding night. Which we’re happy to host once we’ve done the world ;)

FOOD

I have food allergies. Can I request a special menu?
We regret that due to the change of menu and chefs each evening, each evening’s menu is fixed and we cannot cater to specific requirements.

What if I’m vegetarian?
We will offer a vegetarian option for those that clearly state that preference 7 days in advance. Email us at hello@globalfeast2012

Who’s cooking?
Kerstin will be overseeing and curating each evening. Each night she’ll be joined by a very special guest chef (or more) specialising in the cuisine of the evening. We’ll post the details for all guest chefs the minute we know them – on both this site and our Facebook page.

Are you serving all the world foods each evening?
No – we are serving a slice of the world each evening; each night has a special focus e.g on the 7th August we will be eating food from Japan. The whole event will serve the whole world; each night will contribute a component region. You can find out which nights serve which cuisine here.
