CFAB | Spring Fair

It’s the one place in the world where can you gawp at amazing Chinese martial arts while filling up on the best Lebanese mezze this side of Beirut and decadent Russian pastries, all washed down with a Mexican Margharita, then shop til you drop in Kensington’s secret soukh and maybe, if you’re lucky, win flights to Jordan or a holiday in Croatia. It’s the annual CFAB Spring Fair and Food Festival, of course. This year more than 80 diplomatic missions joined together to sell exotic crafts and tasty food at cut prices all in aid of the charity that helps families torn apart across borders.
