In the fourth and final instalment of our four-part film, we capture that magical moment when months of planning, prepping, curating and tasting come together in a weekend-long love affair with food, drink, fire and music.

While you were still dreaming about your favourite dish from last year’s festival (Tom Brown’s oyster? Bryan Furman’s smoky jerk duck? Amninder’s tandoor kebab?), we were working on a four-part mini-movie to lift the lid on the smoking pot that is Meatopia and give all of you a peek inside.

From skill to ethos, there’s a hell of a lot that goes into creating the festival and every dish that the chefs bring to its collective table. We wanted to document that story, from the fires that roar under the grills, to the sourcing of our veg and meat, the craft of cooking them both, and the magical moment that it all comes together in one big party at the Dock.

Keep your eyes peeled for some special guests rearing their heads in there… you might even see yourself tucking into a chop or getting down to some funky brass band beats after a few craft beers.

Below you can watch the fourth and final instalment of Meatopia, The Movie β€” a four-part film made during the build-up and festival weekend of Meatopia 2019. In this video, creative director Mat Kemp tries to put into words the magical, climactic moment when months of planning and curation come together in one giant celebration of food, fire, drink and music at London’s Tobacco Dock.
