Festival catering for crew and artists

The UK’s most friendly festival catering team

The Occasional Kitchen specialise in festival catering for crew and artists. We produce exceptional quality meals for festivals all over the UK and abroad. Every year we feed workers at festivals all over the country and we absolutely love being on site, in a field, looking after your crew, artists and guests.

Our kitchens and dining experiences are designed and built to meet your needs and specifications. We can feed 50 to 4000 people at one sitting. We comply to the highest health, safety and hygiene standards and source local and sustainable produce wherever possible.

We’ve been providing crew and artist catering at the UK’s best known and well-loved festivals since 2013. Regulars at Womad, Glastonbury, Boomtown and Oxfam our list of clients just keeps on growing!

Festival catering menus

We take a bespoke approach to artist and crew catering and work with our clients to create the perfect festival catering menu – we love to collaborate on menu planning, or you can just let us take the stress away and propose a high quality, energising and delicious menu to serve your hard working and dedicated team. All of our food perfectly balances the requirements of hard-working manual crews with a quality expected by your artists and VIPs alike. You just have to turn up and eat.

Mobile catering trucks & trailers

Our state-of-the-art mobile catering trucks are a great plug and play option without the need for any other infrastructure. We have everything we need on board, ready to nourish your crew and artists with a menu of your choice. We can offer a totally bespoke approach for your project – from the menu, to the set design and presentation.
