The space, which takes over the outdoor area of Hawker House, has been designed as a ‘tropical tiki paradise’, filled with sand pits, trampolines, tiki huts and a fire pit. Alongside this, six street food traders have been added, including Japanese katsu from Yu Kyu, meat-free Mexican tacos from Club Mexicana, American ribs and brisket from Smokestak and whisky chicken from Thai barbecue, Farang.

Emma Howe, sales director at London Union, said: "The Land of Bamboo is like nothing the UK event industry has ever seen. It’s a fantastic outdoor space with the added extra of having vast indoor space available. Whatever the weather, Hawker House and the Land of Bamboo are a great choice for event bookers."
