Here at Red Radish we’re expanding our mobile street food operation via the Red Radish Fire Department! Making it ideal for everything from the quickest of roadside gigs through to a high-capacity festival, party or corporate event.
Some of our team were in Manchester when the terror attack happened in May 2017. Not long after, Ariana Grande announced One Love Manchester, and the BBC dropped us a line to see if we could provide the backstage catering…
Whether you’re the superstar talent, the sound man, or a runner, we know that food on set at a TV or film shoot can make or break your day. So when we got the call to say a couple of “Nasty Women” needed some tasty location catering it was impossible to say no.
One of our greatest adventures in 2017 was heading down to Kent… that doesn’t sound very adventurous I hear you say, but we were there to literally feed the 5000. One of the leading providers of shared workspace contacted us to invite us along to their annual summer camp, a corporate away weekend of the best kind.
We love catering for all kinds of events, but our sweet spot is feeding the crew and artists backstage at all the greatest music festivals in the UK. Many of the crew chose to eat in the Radish marquee, but we also offer take out – our consumables are all environmentally friendly and biodegradable and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
If there are two things we really love about August on the festival circuit they have to be Carfest Festival and the loveable Pudsey Bear. We love catering for a happy crew and when the main artist (no offence Chris!) turns out to be a bear we really like to push the catering boat out for this BBC megastar.
Festival crew catering is never the easiest thing we do, so when a gig comes up where you need to be on site for six weeks and across two separate catering locations the challenges were always going to be just a little bigger than usual and especially when dealing with the great British weather.
It’s always nice to get a call from a major television company that requires some TV location catering, but when that call comes from Thames TV and the gig is X-Factor it was all the more sweeter for our mobile chefs and front-of-house crew.
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.

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!
