Fish and chips tour to take in five major cities



Kingfisher Fish & Chips and The National Fish & Chip Awards are taking the nation’s favourite takeaway on the road as they tour the UK and serve up free portions of fish and chips.

 
From Monday 23rd October 2017, a customised van lead by Craig Maw and Nikki Mutton will visit five UK cities in celebration of the awards’ 30th anniversary.
 
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 just the way they like it! 
 
Travelling nearly 1,000 miles in five days, the van will be stopping between 12pm – 2pm at:
 
• Glasgow, George Square - 23 October 2017
• Newcastle, Northumberland Street - 24 October 2017
• Manchester, Piccadilly Gardens - 25 October 2017
• Birmingham, Victoria Square - 26 October 2017
• London, Cutty Sark Gardens - 27 October 2017
 
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.”
 
The journey of The National Fish & Chip Awards’ fish and chip van can be trailed on social media with #FishNChipTrip.
