Sophie’s Street Feast is back for 2024!

After the immense success of Sophie’s Street Feast in September 2023, Toybox and I are very excited to announce that Street Feast will return to Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre on Sunday 22nd September 2024.

New for 2024 is the addition of corporate partners, QLM Search and Brioche Pasquier, and charity partner YMCA Milton Keynes, who support young people locally with accommodation, employment and advice. We are also grateful to MKFM, who are our official media partner for 2024.

Once again, we will bring you an eclectic and exciting mix of local street food vendors, offering an array of delicious dishes inspired by cuisines worldwide, with something for everyone to enjoy. Some of the favourites from 2023’s event will be on the lineup, but we promise there will be some NEW exciting vendors on the menu for you to try. The full lineup will be announced soon!

The Collaboration Choir performed a singing flash mob at last year’s event.

The inaugural event went better than we imagined, with nearly 3,000 people attending and over £1,600 raised for Toybox, Girl Pack and St Mark’s Meals. Our aim wasn’t just to raise funds for local charities, but to raise their brand awareness and that we did! Both St. Mark’s Meals and Girl Pack got corporate partnerships off the back of the event which will help them continue to do amazing work in the community.

Here is the video from last year’s event. Can you spot yourself?

Who are Toybox?

Toybox works with children who have been plunged into the chaos of living or working on some of the world’s most dangerous streets. Headquartered in Milton Keynes, it supports children marginalised and abused by those who should protect them and works with local organisations who are best placed to help find the most appropriate ways to prevent and help children escape from a life on the streets. Toybox works in El Salvador, Bolivia, Guatemala, India, Nepal and Kenya. To find out more, visit

Meet our headline sponsors

We are thrilled to introduce our headline sponsors for Sophie’s Street Feast 2024, QLM Search and Brioche Pasquier. Two wonderful Milton Keynes-based businesses that share our vision of supporting local causes and local food.

QLM Search is a leading executive search firm committed to connecting exceptional talent with outstanding organisations. Their support as the Headline Sponsor for Sophie’s Street Feast reflects their dedication to community engagement and charitable causes.

Sean Lydon, Managing Director of QLM Search, commented, “At QLM Search, we believe in the power of community and the positive impact it can have on individuals. We are thrilled to be the Headline Sponsor for Sophie’s Street Feast and support local charities like YMCA MK. Our commitment to fostering community well-being aligns perfectly with the spirit of this event, and we are excited to be part of such a meaningful celebration.”

Brioche Pasquier was founded in 1936 by Gabriel Pasquier in a small village bakery in Les Cerqueux, France. In 1974, his sons built the family business into Brioche Pasquier, which is now the No. 1 brioche brand and employs over 3000 people worldwide.

Ryan Peters, Managing Director, commented, “At Brioche Pasquier, community isn’t just a word; it’s the rhythm that beats in the heart of our company. We’re not just bakers; we’re partners,  actively involved in supporting local charities, businesses and events, reinforcing our dedication to having a positive impact on the area surrounding its factories. The recent expansion of the UK headquarters further demonstrates Brioche Pasquier’s commitment to the region and its people.”
