A group of street food traders in Bristol have come together to launch a range of exciting new free evening events in the city. Bristol EATS, or BEATS, will launch its first event at Lakota in St Paul’s on Thursday 25th April, 5pm to late. It will then run at Lakota on Thursdays throughout the summer.
BEATS is a true Bristol based street-food collective, created by a group of street-food traders including Bagel Boy, Kebab Revolution, Meat & Bread, Pizza Monkey, Vee Double Moo, CUPP and Viet Vite.
Its aim is to blend the South West’s freshest new street food offerings with the region’s best up and coming music, artists and performers, along with licensed bar facilities to create a free street food party event for Bristol.
There will be a licensed bar, music from Bristol based upcoming bands, showcases from local artists and performers and a whole host of amazing street food stalls from the BEATS team and invited guest traders.
BEATS aims to build a unique reputation on the national street food scene by offering the best in South West street food accompanied by great music, creative performances and exciting bar facilities.
Commenting for BEATS, Bridget Pilkington from Vee Double Moo, one of the street food traders involved in the collective, said: “We want BEATS events to capture the atmosphere of a carnival or street party. BEATS & Lakota is an exciting combination, great music, drinking and some of the best fresh new street food on the South West scene. Free entry, great local food, drinking, music, art…We have a feeling our events are going to be right up Bristol’s street!”
Adding to the permanent Thursday night market at Lakota, BEATS will also host a street food area as part of the Big Green Week Market on 22nd June. St Stephen’s Street off Corn Street will become BEATS HQ for the day, giving hungry visitors the opportunity to spend the whole day sampling the range of fresh, delicious food available. A bar and music stage will be provided by Mr Wolf’s to provide a complete outdoor socialising experience. Again, entry is free.
BEATS will also be coming soon to The Apple cider boat on Welsh Back for regular Friday night food parties.
