It’s been a groundbreaking summer for KERB Caters. In June we fed over 18,000 people across 30 different venues creating over 350 jobs for our traders. From a summer party inside the Natural History Museum, to a three day market in Somerset House’s courtyard celebrating 50 years of Black British creativity for Generation Get Up – on the weekend of 20-23rd June we fed over 6,000 guests across 9 events. Highlights from two of these special ones below.
NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
Summer Party 🎈Feeding 750 guests under the big blue whale. Bian Dang Taiwanese bao, praline Le Choux buns, Tongue n Cheek ox heart burgers – and it’s the first time that street food traders have set up to serve food in there.

- Our first event off UK soil – we took 3 traders to Osea Island to cater a three day conference in March:
- Three inKERBator graduates ‘took flight’ into the catering world – Smoke and Bones, The Gnocchi Shop and Curry on Naan Stop all won their first private event jobs.
- We rolled out a reusable cup scheme on KERB Bars. (Following on from #KERBPactLunch initiative at our markets)
KERB Bar partners, Four Points brewed our first KERB Caters batch!
- We became an official venue partner of Alexandra Palace – and cater our first event there in August.
