Up In Your Grill, Northern Quarter, Manchester

IT’S THE LAST B.EATSTREET (for now at least they tell us) SO DON’T MISS OUT, GET YOURSELF DOWN OVER THE WEEKEND.

AS IT’S A BANK HOLIDAY THERE’S A BONUS DAY ON SUNDAY.

Week 10 Line Up – 22nd, 23rd & 24th August (click then click again for a proper view!);

 

Did you go to any of the Friday Food Fights? If you did you’ll know that these fantastic events brought a whole new way to simultaneously eat, drink and party in Manchester, with each one of the 12 events held at the late-1870’s Victorian Upper Campfield market hall on Deansgate full to capacity each week and entertained a steady flow of guests enjoying the food, drinks and DJs.

Following its launch on Friday 7th March over the 12 weeks it took place the 30 food operators (including Solita, Lucha Libre, Red’s True Barbecue, Mughli and Aumbry) and 5 new startups (La Dolce Dolls, Love From the Streets, Shake Maroc & Roll, Fair Game and Hip Hop Chip Shop) served around 35,000 dishes to upwards of 20,000 people while 25 local DJs and club nights entertained the crowds. The only things wrong with Friday Food Fight; there were only 12 of them and of course, despite being a fantastic location in itself it wasn’t in the Northern Quarter!

So fantastic news then that following the success of Friday Food Fight the team from B.EAT Street Manchester is bringing it’s ever-changing food, drink and DJ line-up to Manchester’s Northern Quarter for ten summer weekend block parties in the form of Up In Your Grill.

Friday Food Fight has been a fantastic experience. We wanted to put something totally different together that Manchester had never seen the like of before and we are pretty sure we pulled it off. The real success story was the new start ups who really shone amongst the line up of established businesses. Up In Your Grill is set to be more turbo fuelled fun with the added bonus of a great outdoor space for the people of Manchester to enjoy for ten whole weekends.” ~ Chris Legh, B.Eat Street

The formula is similar; each weekend is to be curated by one of Manchester’s leading club nights, combining food from the best venues and street food heroes in the North, all washed down with an expertly selected range of craft beers, ciders and fresh cocktails. There are differences though; the Northern Quarter location, Brownsfield Mill on Tariff Street, has outdoor space so if the Manchester weather is kind we can enjoy ourselves outside, plus Up In Your Grill will also take place on Friday and Saturday. Originally there was going to be one more change, but thanks to a late sponsorship deal they have dropped the post-7pm £3 charge so entry is now FREE all the time.
