I've got some very exciting things coming up during my last few weeks in Leicester and here's one of them. I'll be on the judging panel for the next UK Burger Battle. Haven't heard of it before? UK Burger Battle is about one thing - the mighty burger.
This is a party and a great night out. The concept is simple - two teams, two burgers, a whole lotta people judging and then one winner. Kicking off a national tour, the Leicester battle is in the diary for Friday 11 March and puts Gone Burger against Leicester new boys The Beefer. Remember Rib Nights? It's the same people behind this so I know it'll be good.
For The Beefer, who hit the street food scene in August 2015, this is home turf with all of their ingredients sourced locally from Leicestershire and burgers made with real love. London's Gone Burger return to UK Burger Battle following their victory at the Birmingham event in 2015.
This is a ticketed event and it usually sells out fast so get on it! Early Bird tickets for the Battle are priced at £20 and include entry, two burgers (each!) and a welcome drink. Plus, if you buy 5 you’ll get one free. UK Burger Battle is a full night out too with Sailor Jerry on hand with all the best rum cocktails and a live DJ spinning the decks for a post burger boogie. Fancy it? Buy your tickets here.
