The World Korean Food Festival 2020

We just found out about this fortnight-long food event in New Malden in September via a post on the KCC’s Facebook page. After a frantic bout of messaging various Korean contacts to get further details, I received a copy of a kakaotalk image, which is embedded in the post below. As you can see, it’s not terribly high-resolution (click on it for the biggest size I have), but I’ve had it confirmed that the email address for pre-booking is yim2002 at hotmail.com: numbers are limited to 15 per event to enable social distancing.

I’ve extracted the timetable as best I can from the image. If any further details become clearer I’ll update this post when I receive them, but I thought you’d like to mark your diaries at the earliest opportunity.
