​Europe's Largest Chicken Wing Festival Is Coming To The UK This Summer

Europe's largest chicken wing festival is coming to the UK this summer - well, it's set to, at least, which is all we can ask for at the moment.

A huge celebration of the almighty chicken wing, Wing Fest UK bills itself as 'Europe's Largest Chicken Wing Festival'.

It's due to make its triumphant return later this year for its seventh annual festival, following a year out for 2020 for, er, pretty obvious reasons.

The London festival will take place on 24 and 25 July, followed by the Manchester festival on 14 and 15 August.

The events will then draw to a close in Bristol on 11 and 12 September.

Tickets for this year's festival went on sale earlier today, with an announcement on social media saying: "After a year away, we're back for our 7th annual festival this summer.

"We're bringing along some of the UK's finest wing vendors for an event like no other."

London's event will take place at London Stadium and Bristol's at Lloyds Amphitheatre, while Manchester's location is yet to be announced.

Last year's Bristol festival was cancelled in March last year, with an announcement following in June that said the Manchester and London legs would also be postponed until next year.

A statement from the organisers said: "Unfortunately, the time has come and we are very sorry to announce that both Manchester and London Wing Fest 2020 have been postponed.

"We apologise to those who would have preferred this announcement sooner, but we were trying our hardest to see if it was possible to run the event safely, within the recommended guidelines and with the appropriate social distancing measures in place.

"We also had our fingers, toes and wings crossed that the situation would have improved by the event date. Sadly, this is not the case. Your safety and the safety of our staff and traders must be out priority."

Thankfully, anyone who purchased a ticket last year was given the opportunity to roll it over for 2021, with replacements now sent out, according to the website.

The deadline for requesting a 2020 refund has now passed, meaning all non-refunded tickets have been automatically transferred to 2021.
