Everyone went for
the grill last year…

…the 23rd National BBQ Week certainly did and broke all records!

May 25th – June 2nd, 2019

Our 23rd National BBQ Week finished in June 2019 and what a week it was! We’ve been helping people become Better BBQ’ers since 1997 and although the weather 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.

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 back next year for a record-breaking 24th time!

and we’ll be back for a record-breaking 24th time very shortly!
