Ladies in Pig will also be lending their support to the evening by bringing their trailer with them from which they will be cooking Antony Worrall Thompson burgers.
Ashley Walcott, a trainee chef and brother of footballer Theo Walcott, will be "chefing' on the evening along with South American chef Aida Popplestone.
Q-Guild members supporting the charity event include David Lidgate, and Keith Mulford from Dennis of Bexley, and Alan Bennett who will be demonstrating his renowned sausage making skills.
Joe will be auctioning prizes including a Fools and Horse board game donated and signed by David Jason the star of the TV series. "David has also given me a jar of chutney which he is hoping to produce on a commercial basis."
Joe is hoping to raise £8,000 from the Pepper Foundation and said sales for tickets that cost £10 were going well.
