Scheduled to take place on 17th and 18th June, from 12:00 noon till 19:00, in the picturesque Potters Fields Park, Tooley Street near London’s iconic Tower Bridge. The festival brings together an impressive line-up of distinguished guests from both Uzbekistan and the UK’s vibrant Uzbek diaspora community, including master craftspeople and leading lights from the world of dance and music.

The centrepiece of the Festival will be our world famous “Plov” dish , prepared by celebrity chef Bahriddin Chustiy, who currently holds the Guinness Book World Record for having prepared well over 7 tonnes of Plov to date! Guests will also be able to sample a plethora of Uzbek delicacies whilst enjoying our world famous hospitality – all under the close supervision of London’s top Uzbek Chef Muzaffar Sadykov -Executive Chef and CEO of OshPaz Authentic Uzbek Street Food, as seen on both Netflix and Apple TV.

The festival will feature a kaleidoscope of arts – from leading Uzbek fashion designers and crafts people – all showcasing the intricate artistry and traditional craftwork of Uzbek textiles, clothing and accessories. Visitors will be able to experience first-hand the tastes and sights of the Silk Road that once connected East and West.

In addition to the exhibition, the festival’s stage will offer audiences sounds and beats from the heart of Central Asia! Bringing together for the first time some of the most talented and popular artists and DJs from Uzbekistan, Londoners will be mesmerised by music and dance from the ancient cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva showcasing the essence and diversity of Uzbek culture.

HE Said Rustamov, the Ambassador of the Republic of Uzbekistan to the United Kingdom extends a traditional Uzbek invitation to all – “We are honoured to bring the Uzbek Festival of Food and Culture to London, a melting pot of cultures and a city known for its appreciation of diverse traditions. This festival serves as a bridge connecting our nations, showcasing the beauty and richness of Uzbekistan’s cultural heritage and fostering mutual understanding and appreciation.”

Kamola Makhmudova – representative of the Uzbek diaspora in UK – said of the planned event “Our small Uzbekistan community is excited to welcome Londoners and UK guests to the first ever Uzbek Festival! We wholeheartedly invite you to share with us our passion for food and community. We encourage you to experience first hand our proud tradition of excellent hospitality and to sample the tastes of the Silk Road which once connected Asia and Europe. Prepare to be amazed!”

This historic festival would not be possible without the generous support of local UK companies, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Uzbekistan, and the Staff Network of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
