Situated in the heart of the Restaurant Quarter, Bagatti’s has been one of Croydon’s most popular restaurants for 26 years. The restaurant serves the finest Italian cuisine prepared from the freshest ingredients complimented by a selection of premium wines. As an active supporter of the festival and member of the South Croydon Business Association, Peter Bagatti said: “The SCBA is extremely proud to be able to put on this sixth annual Croydon Food and Music Festival. It’s wonderful to see the community and businesses come together to stage what is undoubtedly Croydon’s biggest food festival. Last year a record 12,000 people came along to enjoy a really fabulous day out and we hope even more join us on June 25th.”

William Shakespeare’s immortal line from ‘Twelfth Night’ couldn’t be more appropriate to the Croydon Food & Music Festival, as one of the sponsors is ‘The Last Night of the Croydon Proms’. For over 25 years the LNOCP committee under the inspiration of their Chairman, Mr Derek Barr, MBE have worked hard to give hope and encouragement to many charities and deserving causes in the Croydon area. Funds distributed have been positively used for the benefit of young people to establish and to continue the advancement of their aims in becoming better citizens. The LNOCP committee wish the Croydon Food & Music Festival every success.
