From 2nd – 8th September, the town’s annual food festival returns, with residents across the borough invited to experience the ‘Flavours of Orpington’.
A week-long celebration of the thriving restaurant scene in Orpington, home to some much-loved and long-established eateries as well as some exciting new additions, Flavours of Orpington is the perfect chance to take a fresh look at what’s on offer in Orpington town centre.
The festival brochure highlighting what’s on offer at some of the town's restaurants will be distributed to local households and is available to pick up at Tesco Orpington - you can also take a look above!
The festival concludes with a weekend of free to attend events in Market Square. For starters, ‘Foodie Friday’ on 6th September. A mouth-watering selection of food stalls and a licenced bar is accompanied by a delicious line-up of live music.

Plus, new this year A Mano present the first Spaghetti Eating Contest!
A collaboration with the good eggs of Orpington Churches Together rounds off the week with a free BBQ and family entertainment at the ‘Sunday Social’.
