City centre professional Chris Grimes said: “Best venue yet for food fight. Brilliant atmosphere and great use of the space.”

The ten week run of Friday night parties, which started on Friday, will continue until Friday 19th December with eight traders each week. Plus each week will have four or five guests ensuring that no two line ups are the same. Each week will be made up of a mix of existing venues from across the city and the cream of the crop of up and coming street food vendors.

Chris Legh, from Street, says:

“We really wanted to go back to the area where Street first started and the Great Northern Warehouse offers a brilliant opportunity in one of the most vibrant parts of town.”

Get yourself down to FOOD FIGHT MCR this Friday.
