This year our catering team, working alongside Celia Clyne Catering and supervised by the London Beth Din look forward to feeding you during Limmud. Look out for some exciting new changes to the dining experiences at Festival; this year’s food will not be one to miss. If you have any questions regarding catering at Festival, please do not hesitate to email our catering chairs, who will be more than happy to help.
Meal time experience
Limmud places a great amount of emphasis on participant care and enjoyment, including in the dining experience. Whether you fancy a slightly quieter mealtime, need to meet your friends and let them know where you will be or want to grab your lunch and head to as many sessions as possible, we’ve got all of that covered. Plus we have some exciting new dinner time options for those of you who really want to make the most out of Festival.
Type of food available
Limmud Festival caters for all of your culinary needs. Every meal will have a variety of options including food suitable for all those with special dietary needs. Volunteers will always be available to help you find something. If you have any additional dietary requirements, please make sure to mention them on your registration form.
At every meal there will be variety, and at Lunch and Dinner there will be multiple venues serving different foods.
For lunch, Limmud Festival will continue to offer “Grab-n-Go”: sandwiches, salad and soup available to take away. This option is particularly good if you have lots to get to and want to grab something speedy.
At dinner, we will again have an alternative dining experience. We will continue to serve exceptional food in our main dining room and will be offering a street food experience, including meat, vegetarian and vegan options. This food will be exciting, filled with flavour and bursting with fun with the option to take-away or sit-in and soak up the atmosphere!
Finally, after dinner is finished and the bar is in full swing, you will be able to purchase late night bar-snacks and hot food to get you through the night.
There will be children’s food served at every meal of the day at our Families’ dining room in the Crowne Plaza and also in the Hilton. If you have any questions about families’ food then please get in touch and we will be delighted to help.
The Limmud Bar
Undoubtedly one of the buzzing and epicentres of the Limmud Festival experience, the Limmud Bar will once again be a great place to meet fellow participants and catch up with friends old and new. From water to wine to whisky, all of your favourite spirits, sodas and snacks will be available from one of the many bar volunteers waiting to help you out. Whether you’re getting into the party spirit or unwinding after another great day, the Limmud Bar will certainly be a place you can’t miss!
Some evenings you may be looking for something a bit different to the regular bar. Bar Purple is Limmud Festival’s brand new and vibrant social space – a great place to hang out at any time of day. Come and unwind during the day and enjoy a drink from our Cafe with a good book, unwind with friends or visit some of Limmud Festival’s partners at the Shuk. In the evening, come to the bar to sample one of our unique cocktails alongside intimate poetry, comedy and musical performances. Whatever the time and however the mood takes you, Bar Purple has something for you.
Late Night Food
Sometimes, later in the evening, you just need some extra food and our Late Night Food options will solve that in a hurry. There will be a range of delicious light hot food options and bar snacks for everyone – meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans alike.
Making a more ecological and sustainable Limmud
We will be ensuring there is more emphasis around recycling and food wastage during Festival 2019. We will be encouraging everyone to think twice before using another disposable cup for their fresh cup of tea. We encourage all participants to bring their own reusable flask/hot-drink cup and water bottle at Festival.
Why not purchase your own Limmud Festival coffee cup and water bottle on the application form when you apply?
We want this year to see a big step towards creating a more ecological and sustainable Limmud for now and the future.
