We’re set to have street food from:

Hailing from Leicestershire, this outfit are excellent purveyors of South American inspired street food & BBQ, with a twist. They serve fresh and tasty dishes straight from their 1973 Citroen H Van. As a family run business they take great care in sourcing as many local ingredients as possible to produce food that we all love to eat. They were at our launch event in February and went down a treat! We welcome them back with open arms.

Big Daddies Diner
The last time they were at Canteen they were so popular they sold out in a record 3 hours! One of the Midlands original street food traders, this local family-run outfit hails from Lutterworth and provides the very best in Gourmet Hot Dogs. Owner Jeff has been creating American diner-style masterpieces for the past 5 years and everything they serve is sourced locally and made fresh, even down to the relishes. These are the real thing – big locally produced sausages in brioche buns with toppings such as Brisket Chilli and Mac n Cheese! Watch out for the Canteen exclusives!

Based in LCB Depot; Grahame and the team have been bringing fresh seasonal food to Leicester since 2013. Canteen gives Grays the chance to do extra special dishes that normally wouldn’t feature on their usual menus, perfectly complementing the other traders. We look forward to seeing what they come up with for May.

Bitsy’s Emporium
Bitsy’s Emporium is a huge name on the Leicester cake scene. A baker to stars, she’s made cakes for the likes of McFly, Example, Bon Iver and, just a few weeks ago, even Ed Sheeran. From rainbow cupcakes, to obscenely tasty layer cakes, Bitsy will keel that sweet tooth of yours satisfied. Vegan and gluten free options will also be available.
