Canteen Street Food @ LCB Depot Leicester

Canteen is fast becoming one of the city's must attend events, the March event was attended by well over 1200 people including myself. The next event is on Friday 28th April at LCB Depot on Rutland Street and brings one of the strongest line ups to date with street food traders from across the UK. April's event will also see the event growing to 6 street food traders, with 4 announced below and 2 more to follow next week, including one of the organiser's street food heroes.

A spokesperson for Canteen said, “We were overwhelmed by the attendance at March's Canteen event. Although traders brought hundreds of extra portions we were inundated by the amount of people who attended, especially early on. With all traders selling out we've taken steps to increase our provision by adding a further 2 traders for April's event. Due to the nature of street food there’s only so much that traders can prep beforehand and serve on the day without sacrificing on the quality, so we're looking forward to welcoming more traders who can keep the fantastic level of quality going".

As always the event incorporates great food from a variety of traders, DJ Fitz playing funk/disco music, a fully stocked bar, a separate Sailor Jerry cocktail stand and a selection of real ales. April sees the launch of Canteen’s new pop-up cocktail bar. On select months, celebrated bartenders from the most influential and award winning bars from across the UK will be bringing their own crafted menu to serve to guests. April’s event has Stephen Pennack; who originally started his career in Leicester then moved to London several years ago. He joined the now famous team at Barrio bars and I'm looking forward to seeing him showcase his cocktails at Canteen.

With the traders below confirmed for April's Canteen the next event is surely not to be missed!
