Luxury retailer Fortnum & Mason is hosting ‘The Festival for Heroes’ – a one day event to raise funds for the Help for Heroes charity which works to provide direct support for wounded servicemen returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Fortnum & Mason itself will be the flagship exhibitor on the day showcasing its very best produce and will be joined by stalls from Spectator Magazine, Boyd Cantenac Wines and London Helicopters.
The festival will take place on 22nd May 2008 at The Military and Naval Club in London’s St. James’ Square and is open to both servicemen and civilians.
