Some of Birmingham’s most loved chefs are confirmed for the four-day event, which takes place from 14th – 17th June at NEC Birmingham, alongside the city’s most popular street food vendors, and plenty of local artisan producers.

Well-known faces, Glynn Purnell and Aktar Islam, will be pitting their local knowledge against each other during an exclusive Brummie showdown in The Big Kitchen.
