Last year’s 23rd National BBQ Week
was a huge success…

Our 23rd National BBQ Week was a really big success helping continue our mission to make people Better BBQ’ers. In fact we’ve been doing that continuously since 1997 and although the summer weather in 2019 was somewhat variable, we were still able to directly engage with nearly quarter of a million consumers, sampling and demonstrating Gastro-grilling tips & advice across the country. The National BBQ RoadShow also wowed the crowds at both the London Foodie Festival in Syon Park and the Royal Bath & West Show down in Somerset.

So overall, it was a huge success, and we’d like to say a massive thank you to all those Barbi-fans who took part as well as to our BarbiMates and of course our brilliant Barbi sponsors, without whom this would not have been possible. So, a Big Barbi thank you to all and of course we’ll be in late May this year for a record-breaking 24th time!

and this year National BBQ Week will be back for a record-breaking 24th time in just…

National BBQ Week – a potted history

We’ve come a long way from those dim, distant days of summer 1997 when National BBQ Week was first launched and the cry was “if it ain’t burnt, it ain’t barbi”. In fact, National BBQ Week has not only helped change all of our attitudes towards BBQ and summer eating, it’s also helped grow the BBQ market from just 9 million BBQ occasions back then to around 135 million this year and all indications are that they’ll be even more in 2020, when hopefully we’ll all be over Brexit!
