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.
