British Street Food Awards
3rd – 5th September 2021

The British Street Food Awards is back for its 12th year and will be the most sustainable yet with Eighth Plate and NCASS helping them to deliver a zero food waste final.

What’s on

Launched in 2009, the British Street Food Awards is all about recognising the best of the 10,000 new food vendors who are selling food on the streets.

The awards started with four regional heats, with the Northern Heats taking place at Chow Down in Leeds last month. The Awards culminate in a final, which will take place at Freedom Festival in Hull, from the 3rd to the 5th of September.

About the awards

A British Street Food Award is a prize that genuinely changes lives. Wingmans, big winners at the BSFA and the ESFA in 2017, recently opened up their second restaurant – in Soho. MEATliquor, who won the Awards back in 2009 – now have 12 restaurants.

Food Mutiny – the company behind the Awards in Britain – will take the competition to 16 European countries this summer, and launch the USA Street Food Awards in the Autumn.

British Street Food Awards Judges

Celebrity judges at the final will include Michelin award-winning chef Shaun Rankin, Co-founder of Yorkshire Food Guide Tara Harris, Rate My Takeaway Internet sensation Daniel Malin, Rugby League Hull Legend Mose Masoe, and Burnsey from BBC Radio Humberside.

There will also be a number of DJ’s covering all three days at the Freedom Festival, including the likes of Simmer, Fast T & Nina and Tilt to name a few!


The Freedom Festival is located on High Street near Myton Bridge in the Pay and Display car park. This is a fully seated event that will run in 2.5-hour sessions, meaning you have 150 minutes to sample as many of the amazing food treats on offer as you can.
