BBC Good Food Eat Well Show - A River Street Production

13 Mar 2015

The first ever BBC Good Food Eat Well Show was a huge success, welcoming thousands of visitors through the doors of Olympia West, Olympia London's flexible space for small to medium-sized events, from 27 February – 1 March 2015.

‘We were delighted with the first Eat Well Show, over 10,000 visitors attended, healthy living and clean eating is very on trend at the moment and the show delivered an entertaining and educational day out to 1,000’s of visitors.  Over 50% of the exhibitors were brand new to our Good Food Shows - demonstrating the scope of the potential for our future Eat Well Shows.’ Said Laura Biggs, Managing Director, River Street Events.

The brand new show based on the well-known BBC Good Food title Eat Well hosted over 25 well known healthy eating stars including Davina McCall, Lorraine Pascale, Hemsley + Hemsley and Natasha Corrett as well as over 90 exhibitors.

Visitors to the show had the opportunity to be inspired by watching celebrity chefs demonstrate on the Healthy Kitchen stage sponsored by Lakeland, showing how easy it is to prepare healthy, good food! They could also pick up tips and tricks from the stars on the Interview Stage sponsored by Brita and get involved with vibrant discussions and informative talks on the relationship between food, health and wellbeing on the Eat Well Forum.
