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 - 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.
