The summer seems a long time ago and a long time to come, but Leeds Indie Food’s Eat North is coming out of hibernation for a one-off special, which should help to warm our hearts.
North Brewing Company brewery taproom on Sheepscar Grove will host the event on Saturday 7 December from noon until 8 p.m. with the bar staying open later, until 10pm. The day will offer all the usual Eat North appeal, with the addition of covered seating and heaters for added cosiness.
The food traders include Little Rasco (baby brother of Liverpool steakhouse, Churrasco), So Toasted and Yorkshire Burrito Company, all of whom will be adding that festive streak to their street food. Copper Spoon Cakery, who were such a success at the Christmas Special last year, will be there with their gingerbread houses, and Rabbit Hole Coffee will join the traders, enticing us with Christmas cocktails as well as their usual excellent coffee.
DJ Ed Vector will be entertaining everyone with festive tunes and North Brewing Co will select independent illustrators to sell their prints as part of Print North, which featured at the Vegan Eat North Special in September. Of course, there’ll be the usual games for the energetic and light-hearted.
Christian Townsley, Owner, North Brewing Co. said:
“#EatNorth was a fantastic success this summer, filling the brewery with street food, DJs
and craft beer, and we’re excited to bring it back for a one-off festive special this December!
Working with like-minded independent traders who are producing fantastic food and
drinks is one of our favourite parts of our business and we’re really pleased to be
welcoming So Toasted, Yorkshire Burrito Company, Copper Spoon Cakery and Rabbit Hole
Coffee back to #EatNorth, as well as Little Rasco who are making their #EatNorth debut.
For this special Christmas #EatNorth we’re also showcasing some fantastic
independent illustrators as part of Print North, which we trialled at the vegan #EatNorth in
September. They will be selling prints which make ideal Christmas presents and we will
also be running a pop-up North Brewing Co. stall, selling merchandise and glassware,
brewery tour vouchers, and lots of cans of beer to pop into stockings this Christmas.”
