A fairground of food for your May Ball…

Here at Feast It, we understand that you’ve been working seriously hard all year, so you want your May Ball to be the celebration of the century, and the best one at Cambridge. From bespoke cocktails named after your college, served by The Cocktail Car Company out the side of their converted retro VW Camper, to fresh rock oysters with a spicy whisky dressing from Oyster Boy, we’ve got the traders to perfectly fit your May Ball criteria.

We know that your guests will have paid a pretty penny for their ball ticket, and that they expect to eat and drink delicious produce until the cows come home. We’ve got a great range of mobile bars, serving up anything and everything from artisanal gin and tonics from Jim & Tonic, to exotic cocktails from The Rum Runner. When it comes to the food, you can pick from hundreds of traders, including outrageous gastronomic hot dogs from Harley Dogs, the cheesiest of toasties from Grill My Cheese, chocolatey churros from Los Churros Amigos, wood-fired pizza from Dough & Deer and more!

For those who party hard and make it till 6am, we’ve got a whole host of traders that make the most rewarding survivors breakfasts. Why not book Le Swine and enjoy their exquisite bacon butties, or have your guests revive themselves on a yolky breakfast muffin from Original Fry Up Material?

From enormous chrome vans to vintage Land Rover Defenders, they will look great set up around your college.
