GRUB has made its name in Manchester as a cult favourite street food spot, providing a place for independent and local businesses to trade before getting a permanent home. GRUB is consistently supported by some of Manchester’s favourites businesses such as Mira, which started life at GRUB, and it retains some of the most well-loved street food traders in the city. GRUB has now announced the return of its food festival, GRUB Carnival, setting up shop in a pop-up capacity in Wythenshawe town centre.
The first GRUB Carnival of 2023 will be pitching up in its new location in Wythenshawe Civic Centre, Manchester on Saturday 22nd April, utilising a huge retail unit for indoor seating, bars and activities. The opening street food line up includes Burger Bros smashed burgers, Dough So Good on pizza duty, Feast Of The East bringing Mediterranean treats and House Of Wingz serving up top wings with Neighbourhood Coop.
Manchester artisan rum producers Witch Kings are in charge of the bar which will be supplying cocktails, craft beers and soft drinks to be enjoyed in the sun, which is lucky as the best weather of the year has been forecast. On top of all that, Woodhouse Park Family Centre and Happy Somedays Football will be joining the Carnival for the first date to provide some fun activities for the kids.
Other vendors including Bakehouse 32, Jeyda’s Turkish Kitchen, Mangiama Streetfood, Gwafu Vegan and Big Mama’s Twisted Street Food will join the event later in the year, with the Carnival running monthly until September. The perfect summer activity!
Jason Bailey, Director of GRUB said: “We had a smashing time trialling the carnival last year and so many Wythenshawe folk were happy to see us so it is fantastic we have the chance to come back all summer long, fingers crossed we can carry on building Carnival in to something that makes a difference”.
GRUB Carnival is set to be a fun-packed Manchester day out for all the family (including the dog!) every month this spring and summer, so do keep up to date with dates for the monthly event over on the event page.
