British Street Food Awards 2017 is coming to Digbeth Dining Club

Digbeth is hosting some of the Midlands' best street food this weekend. Here is how to get tickets

Digbeth Dining Club is hosting the regional heats of the annual British Street Food Awards.

There will be two days of heats on Friday, June 16 and Saturday, June 17 at Spotlight and Mama Roux in Lower Trinity Street.

Here 15 top street food traders will compete to reach the British Street Food Award finals in September.

Last year Digbeth Dining Club also hosted the finals, which saw Brummie trader Baked in Brick win best of the best for his food, which he serves out of the bonnet of a Mini.

Digbeth Dining Club won Best Street Event in the UK at the awards in 2013 and 2014 and Thai street food vendor Buddha Belly won The People’s Choice in 2016.

Low 'n' Slow street food

Digbeth Dining Club Founder Jack Brabant said: “Since we started in 2012, we have had a fantastic relationship with the British Street Food Awards winning top event ourselves and getting to host the finals last year.

Digbeth Dining Club is always a good weekend spot

“It really has been a sign that Birmingham is a recognised place for some of the best food in the country and across Europe. By bringing the heats back, Brummies get another chance to support the locals and also try amazing street food from across the UK.”

British Street Food Awards Founder Richard Johnson added: We’re best mates with Birmingham - and the DDC. Any excuse to get back there. With the winner of last year’s Awards coming from Brum (and he’s back to defend his title), this year’s heat promises to be vintage.

"And the prize is bigger than ever. The winner of the 2017 British Street Food Awards will go and represent Britain in the biggest food fight the world has ever seen in the inaugural European Street Food Awards In Berlin. Please come and support the talent.”
