To celebrate the National Fish & Chip Awards turning 30, Seafish are taking the nation’s favourite takeaway dish, Fish and Chips on the road.
From Monday 23 October their Fish and Chip van will be touring the country, stopping in major cities to give away free lip-smackingly delicious Fish and Chips.
Come on down to try the best Fish and Chips in the country, served by the reigning Fish and Chip Shop of the Year, Kingfisher Fish & Chips.
From pickled onions in Glasgow, to gravy in Manchester or curry sauce in Birmingham, fish and chip lovers across the country will be able to tuck into a free portion of the gloriously British dish – just the way they like it!
Travelling nearly 1,000 miles in five days, the Kingfisher van will be stopping at:
Monday 23 October – (A) Glasgow, George Square
Tuesday 24 October – (B) Newcastle, Northumberland St (will provide exact location)
Wednesday 25 October – (C) Manchester, Piccadilly Gardens
Thursday 26 October – (D) Birmingham, Victoria Square
Friday 27 October - (E) London Cutty Sark Gardens event
Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive at Seafish, comments: “The fish and chip shop is a national institution. We’ve had a love affair with fish and chips for well over a century – not much compares to white fish coated in crisp batter, showered in salt, doused in vinegar and eaten out of paper wrappings with a wooden fork. However, as we mark 30 years of the awards and the dish’s continued popularity, we have even more reason to celebrate than ever before.
“For most of us, the love of fish and chips is much more than the food itself; it’s the nostalgic memories of seaside holidays with the family or Friday night suppers after a hard week that come to mind.
“With few being able to resist the mouth-watering combination, we’re using this milestone year as a chance to honour the humble dish, and remind people why British fish and chips are, and will always be, the best in the world.”
