Conferences and Events in Cambridge

The Power Of Food

Whether you want a full day event or simply a 1 hour icebreaker or breakaway session, we have the perfect food experience to suit your requirements for team building in Cambridge! Food brings people together, it’s a great and fun way to bring a team closer together.

Cambridge offers a huge array of local food and drink and we offer an interesting range of food experiences. If what you’re looking for doesn’t exist yet, we are always happy to use our lose links to local businesses to create it for you. F&D events has a different approach to food experiences. We like to offer something different from the usual and we like to think ‘outside the box’.

What can you expect from us?

Expect the unexpected. We could throw in a bit of MasterChef, challenge your tastebuds and senses or encourage the team to work together and provide a food challenge. All of this in a relaxed and informal environment in which inter-colleague relationships are strengthened.

What could be on the drawing board?

We start with a blank page as we like to start from scratch. So that you get the most out of your event, we like to build the event around your requirements as no company or team is the same. We like to talk to you or meet in person so we can explain to you what we have in store for you!

Is it for you?

Are you tired of holding the same boring team building event or conference year after year? If so, then it is time to try something new and creative which will ensure  your employees enjoy themselves while getting to know one another. We have created various culinary events over the last few years designed specifically for corporate groups in search of creative events in the area.

Our clients range from small businesses to world leading corporations. Regardless of the size or scope of the event, we make sure all goals and expectations are exceeded.

conference organisation in cambridge



A day conference for 70 day and 40 evening guests with a food themed break-away session followed by a Food Tour and a pub style dinner.


The conference was held at one of the Cambridge College conference venues with a-state-of-art Auditorium. We included a Food Safari in the afternoon and a Food Walking Tour in the historic centre of Cambridge prior to dinner, each approx. 1.5 hour.

The Food Tour started in the historic centre of Cambridge, where we had private use of the first venue. From here the group split up in 2 groups to ensure the best possible experience.

What they say

About the local food scene

‘We had a great time thank you! Will definitely be visiting Cambridge again…what a lovely place for foodies!’

About our events

‘We approached Gerla from Cambridge Food Tours to organise a corporate event for us. We have recently released ‘The Cambridgeshire Cook Book’ which is all about the best food in the county and with Gerla being so passionate about the local food scene I knew she would be the ideal person to involve in the launch party. We gave her a brief and within a couple of weeks she brought it to life. From organising the venue, food, drinks, invitations and local press, she’d thought of everything. It was an all round wonderful experience working with someone as professional and lovely as Gerla and I would highly recommend getting in touch with her if you are thinking of having a similar corporate event.’
