A Chicken Nugget Festival Is Coming To The UK
Nugget fans, we suggest you clear your diaries for two very important dates in August and September.
Want to know why? Well, you might want to sit down for this one because you're about to lose your shit.
There's a nugget festival coming to the UK. Oh yes, you read it right.
Gone are the days of a quick box of McNuggets on your way home from the pub (ok, let's be honest - those days will never die) because now there's a whole event dedicated to our favourite post-night out nibble.
Hosted by We Love Food, a UK-based blog set up by a community of foodie fanatics, the event promises to fulfil the dreams of chicken nuggets fans all over the country.
There are two dates - one in London on 24th August and another one in Manchester on 22nd September. And here's the best bit: an extra 13 dates and locations are rumoured to be announced soon, according to the event's Eventbrite page.
The glorious event, which kicks off at Infernos Nightclub in Clapham, London, will include live bands and DJs, a giant floating nugget decoration and a nugget-themed photo area - although we're not quite sure we know how that one is going to work...
There's also going to be a huge nugget-eating contest, which promises to crown a winning 'Nugget King and Queen'.
Excited? Well it doesn't stop there. As well as tons of stalls for you to curb your nugget needs, there's going to be loads of FREE helpings for attendees. We're already salivating at the thought...
Tickets to the London event are on sale now for £10 but we doubt they'll be there for long.
The Early Bird release has long sold out and the event's Facebook page already has thousands of attendees looking to get their hands on those golden bites of joy.
Meanwhile, on Twitter, hopeful attendees have expressed their excitement.
"Just learnt there's going to be a chicken nugget festival happening in Clapham at the end of the month and my sophisticated self wants go to it. Reason #453 as to why I'm still single," one user said.
"There is a chicken nugget festival in London while I am there this summer and I am just so happy I may cry," said another.
"Googling flights to London bc chicken nugget festival," said one dedicated fan of the nug.
News of the event even caused a family riff for one determined nuggie nut.
Then there are the unlucky few who forgot to clear their diaries, like this user: "A week ago I booked my weekend trip to London. Today I found out I'm missing the chicken nugget festival in London by 6 days. SIX DAYS!!!"
Unlucky, mate. But for those of you who are going to be around for a day of nugget mania, we suggest you grab your tickets now.
We don't know about you, but we're very excited...
