21st April to 29th April 2018
I'm excited to share that I have been very busy offline, organising the inaugural London Oyster Week event for this coming April.
We have had such a positive response to the idea inspired by the brilliant work done at events like London Cocktail Week produced by Drink UP London.
The format works really well to get maximum involvement from venues and oyster bars without them having to leave their premises. We promote oysters in venues for venues and for oyster farmers.
What is happening at London Oyster Week?
Each participating venue will be offering exclusive oyster specials to London Oyster Week 'Oyster Passport' holders - You can pre-book these via the website
The Oyster Passports also give holders preferential rates at the Feature Events held at selected venues, this will include events like the 'Oyster Atlas' where we attempt to get the most 'merroirs' under one roof with as many of their farmers as possible there too.
You get to eat as many as you want for the one ticket price. Plus, there'll be drinks on hand from the wonderful official sponsors of London Oyster Week, Bruichladdich Whisky, Remy Cognac and Mount Gay Rum.
We will also be raising funds for The Oyster Academy International and its work in oyster advocacy, industry and oyster restoration support projects.
This will be via a discretionary donation on bills throughout the month of April in participating restaurants. This is a fantastic show of support for the oyster industry.
And speaking of, the oyster industry is collaborating beautifully for this event with suppliers donating oyster stock to assist our fundraising efforts. It is great to see such a holistic approach to an event benefiting so many sectors, as well as having a lot of fun.
There will be more news coming soon, so sign up at the website to keep in the loop for breaking London Oyster Week updates and events.
