Here are the food and drinks that are going to be served at BAFTA 2018

The EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs ) will be held at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall, taking place on Sunday 18 February 2018.

Having presented the Awards 12 times previously, Stephen Fry will be stepping down as the host of the ceremony, and in his place will stand Joanna Lumley, who recently made waves in the world of wine co-hosting fizz documentary Absolutely Champers last December.

But while most thespians are distracted by the glitz and glamour of the awards themselves, the drinks business knows the real action at BAFTA’s biggest party of the year is in the kitchen.

This year, the menu has been curated by BAFTA’s own head chef Anton Manganaro and Nigel Boschetti of Grosvenor House fame. This year’s dishes are lighter than previous versions, and even feature a vegan starter for the first time in the awards’ 71-year-history.

BAFTA held its own pre-party for media foodies on Wednesday 23 January, offering a rare insight into the partnerships with Academy nurtures with food and drinks labels around the world.

Keep scrolling to see what’s on the menu at the hottest dinner party in town this year.
