The First Film Location Catering Company on Mum’s List!

We loved our recent quick month’s work as film location caterer on set of the forthcoming (and fantastic!) Mum’s List starring Emilia Fox and Rafe Spall and up and coming young heartthrob Bobby Lockwood (pictured below) . We took our great crew and one of our catering trailers down to a Clevedon base and travelled daily south to Devon and across to Bristol making sure that the crew was kept supplied with nutritious and healthy food during their long and hard working days.

Film, TV and location catering usually means very early starts, tricky logistics and working in all weathers, but despite all of this it can be one of the most rewarding catering jobs we do as everyone quickly pulls together to create a wonderful group of people dedicated to making sure everything possible is done to make a successful film or TV project. Needless to say the food becomes a major part of the ‘home-away-from-home’ and as ever at Red Radish we strive to make sure our food is always some of the best any crew or cast has ever experienced.



Please get in touch with Red Radish if you are looking for a location catering company for your TV, Film, ad or music video. We promise you will love our great prices and wonderful food and guarantee that we will become the first name in your phone book every time you need a reliable and competitive caterer!

Go on. Find a better PR job! – Free Festival Passes, wonderful food and free booze!

As one of the fastest growing catering companies in the UK we naturally have a very busy and damn exciting summer ahead. We will be feeding some great crew and artists on what is definitely our most exciting year for festivals to date and really need to find someone who can help us spread the word

We are therefore looking for a young and gifted PR person/intern/student/fiend who can help run our (already strong) social-media accounts and write some blogs. The successful applicant will need to be a half decent photographer, a bit of a wordsmith and have a good knowledge of Instagram, Twitter and Facebook plus some SEO/Wordpress experience if possible. We get some great opportunities for some really interesting PR so this will be a delightful and fun project to work on plus of course fantastic for your CV.


Our 2016 summer tour kicks-off at Glastonbury mid-June and we will be looking for someone who can be pretty much on the road with us until mid September. As well as Glasto we will most likely be backstage catering at Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, Lovebox, Wilderness, Big Feastival, Carfest, Hampton Court Palace and Electric Picnic. We also have a couple of great surprises lined up including our first ever visit to Carfest North.

A few things to know about he job: -We are looking for team players only and the quirkier and imaginative the better. We have a large crew on site and generally everyone camps and lives together so you will definitely need not be afraid of a dodgy shower or roughing it now and again. You will be well fed and watered and whilst the work is hard we really do have a great time. The only other thing to mention is that when you’re not tweeting, blogging or spreading the word we would expect you too muck in with the rest of the crew and not be afraid of a bit of washing up or serving out the front.

Please get in touch with [email protected] ASAP via email, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Lets see what you can do!

On the Ball Catering for the Rugby World Cup 2015 Opening Ceremony

The Red Radish summer season just got three weeks longer when we heard the news that we have been confirmed as backstage crew and artist caterers for the 2015 Rugby World Cup opening ceremony at Twickenham. We begin setting up our kitchen, and feeding the hardworking production crew in early September and really get busy with some big numbers and super talented people once the rehearsals and lavish ceremony takes place three weeks later.

It will be our first time working with the fantastic Unspun Creative, the agency, which delivered all four Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies during London 2012 and we can’t wait to show them just how great we are!

The spectacular Opening Ceremony and pre-match extravaganza will be a showpiece curtain raiser before the competition kicks off properly on Friday 18 September as England take on Fiji.

We would not want to say anymore than that but trust us when we say there are sure to be some great surprises in store and we are more than a little delighted to be involved.

And, sorry but before you ask, NO we cant tell anyone what surprises they have planned and sadly, NO we definitely don’t have any tickets!

Foodie Heaven with Red Radish, Jamie Oliver and the 2015 Big Feastival!

When we first got the call from IMG, a global leader in sports, fashion and events around the world, asking if we wanted to quote for the backstage artist and crew catering at one of their festivals we were more than a little excited, but once the details emerged that it was for Jamie Oliver and Alex James’s Big Feastival in the beautiful Cotswolds we almost couldn’t contain ourselves in our desire to cook in the same field, never mind feed, some of these uber-talented culinary geniuses and hardworking crew.

It might have taken a couple of months of toing and froing, careful menu planning and countless emails but late yesterday afternoon (in Minsk!) we got the perfect start to the weekend (not that we ever get one of those of course!) when we finally received the email confirming Red Radish had been chosen as the official crew and artist caterer for ‘The 2015 Big Feastival’.


When Jamie and one of his mates decided to get into festivals it was only ever really going to focus on one thing. Food! Food, glorious food (albeit it with great music) and being part of that is all a bit of a dream come true for Red Radish and a pair of PROPER foodies like us.

So picture the scene… Jamie Oliver, the legend that is Raymond Blanc, Masterchef’s Monica Galetti, Ashley Palmer-Watts, the executive head chef for the Fat Duck group (Yes THAT FAT DUCK!!!) and a host of other wonderful chefs and foodies with delicious ingredients all cooking up a storm on the same beautiful idyllic farm as Red Radish and our very own team of extremely talented chefs.

Some might say that the pressure is well and truly on with this one, but we love a bit of that anyway and literally can’t wait to get cooking for ’em all!

BOOM! – It’s Official! Five weeks at Boomtown Fair for Red Radish!

Well, we guess it kind of makes sense really. It’s obvious. Why the hell wouldn’t BOOMTOWN FAIR, (the UK’s fastest growing festival) choose RED RADISH, the UK’s fastest growing festival crew and artist catering company to feed and look after their hardworking troops and talent?

Yes, we are pleased to announce that yesterday it was confirmed that Red Radish will be moving to Boomtown for five weeks in the summer for what will literally be the longest we have been in one place for a couple of years.

We are looking forward to unpacking our kitchens, setting up our marquees and ‘settling’ down for just over a month of crew-catering madness at Matterley! Boomtown, the festival described by the UK’s Independent Newspaper as having a reputation for being ‘gnarly, but surprisingly polished’ (ring any bells?) started just a few years ago and literally hasn’t stopped growing since.


Boomtown Fair takes place in a specially constructed town near Winchester, spanning across eight separate ‘Districts’. This exciting festival channels all its efforts into arts, crafts, and all things creative with an eclectic mix of music that features everything from dub, roots, jungle, punk, bass music through to ska, techno and reggae.

Due to the high volumes (over 30,000) of crew and artists meals that need preparing, Red Radish will be setting up separate catering operations at either end of the amazing fictional town, that pushes the boundaries of imagination by having its own mayoral elections, passports and convoluted political history.


Also, from a more-good-news-point-of-view; if your not one of the talented artists (or insane crew working minimum 18 hour days!) for one of those ‘special wristbands’, then worry no longer, because for the first time ever you will be able to sample our delicious food out in the midst of the festival. We have an exciting little something up our sleeves for what will be our first ever venture into selling street food and Red Radish can’t wait to be amongst it even more than usual. – WATCH THIS SPACE!
