An evening with Charlie Bigham

  • THE CLUBHOUSE, ST JAMES’S 8 Saint James's Square London, England, SW1Y 4JU United Kingdom (map)

An evening with Charlie Bigham, founder of the UK’s fastest-growing upmarket food brand

Inspired by his travels and love of cooking, Charlie set up shop back in 1996 with the sole aim of creating really delicious dishes for foodies that they could pop in the oven and instantly enjoy, putting in all the care and attention you would if you were to cook them yourself.

Using top-quality ingredients, Charlie’s goal was to help people steal back some quality time by doing all the prep for them. Despite stiff competition, the eponymous brand has managed to convince consumers to spend an extra £5 on meals compared to own-label supermarket options and today Charlie Bigham’s is the UK’s fastest-growing, upmarket food brand with sales of over £50m.

6:30pm – 7:00pm Drinks Reception
7:00pm – 8:00pm Presentation and Q&A
8:00pm – 8:30pm Networking and Refreshments

Hear from Charlie himself at this evening event, where he will take us through his own experiences from knocking on doors to sell his early products to finding some upmarket London food shops who were up for stocking him. Then Waitrose. Then Sainsbury’s. Then Tesco. Up to the present and future vision for Bighams.
