If you spot smoke signals coming from the Waterfront, don’t panic. Leave your white vests and cans of lager at home and make way for the professionals; Grillstock is a two day barbeque spanning 17th – 18th July.
In a weekend-long competition, grill-chefs from around the UK gather to impress and excite judges and punters alike in their battle for the King of the Grill trophy. If their culinary skills inspire you, you can take part in Grillstock’s BBC Academy, which is free to ticket holders. Each forty-five minute class specialises in various aspects of the art of grilling, all taught by experts in the field.
Accompanied by over 130 stands exhibiting local food and drink – not to mention a wealth of free samples – you’ll be dancing away at the live music stage on a very full stomach.
Children under sixteen admitted for free, adult tickets from £4.
