British Street Food Awards at Gunwharf Quays



  • Saturday May 26: 11:00am  — 7:00pm
  • Sunday May 27 11-6pm
  • Monday May 28 11-6pm

The southern heats of the 2018 British Street Food Awards will see the region’s best traders fight it out at Gunwharf Quays to win the public vote and a place in the national finals.

On 26th to 28th May, Gunwharf Quays’ Plaza will welcome over a dozen innovative street food vendors, giving visitors the opportunity to sample some of the finest street food on offer in the region.


Shoppers will have the chance to give their feedback on the tastiest dishes, sampling competition dishes and voting for their favourite.

Richard Johnson, founder of the British Street Food Awards, said: “Street food is taking over the world! We are choosing to eat in different ways, leaving the traditional fixed starter-main course-dessert menu and choosing more variety.

“It’s flirty, low-commitment dining, and it’s why pop-ups and street food have become so popular. Street food is making the world a much nicer place to be.”

Visitors to Gunwharf Quays over the Bank Holiday weekend will also be treated to music from the official radio partner of the festival, Wave 105, who will be in attendance with their ‘Tack ‘N’ Tipple’ horsebox bar.

The winner of the regional heats will win a place in the regional finals in London, with the opportunity to represent Britain in the European Street Food Awards finals in Berlin.
