In news that is guaranteed to put a smile on any foodie's faces, the infamous Chicken Wing Celebration Festival is making a come back to the UK.

The event will be taking place next month on 24 and 25 September, and will be held at the Trafford Centre in Greater Manchester.

Event organisers say 200,000 wings will be served during Wing Fest throughout 20 different street food traders, restaurants and BBQ teams. I'm not drooling, you are...

The official website reads: "Manchester Wing Fest is a celebration of the mighty chicken wing and is now the world’s most popular chicken wing festival".

Wing Fest is aimed to showcase the best chicken wings the UK has to offer as thousands of ticket holders and a judging panel will get try the wings and decide who does it best.

Live demos and musicians will also be at the event to enjoy, while fans can dabble in a bit of axe throwing if they fancy.

And as for the kids - or those who are simply young at heart - fairground rides will be there.

As well as enjoying a light drink or two at the bar after indulging in too many chicken wings, fans can also bring home some memorabilia from the event, as a merchandise store will be onsite.

Things will even get political with a polling box for fans and judges to cast their votes on the wings.

Wing fanatics can purchase early bird tickets for both days at £20, meanwhile a standard ticket will set you back £25. Early bird tickets will enable one hour early access into the venue.

But Manchester isn't the only location for the beloved food fest as the celebration for chicken lovers is also heading to Bristol's Lloyds Amphitheatre next month on 10 and 11 September.

The Bristol celebration will serve 100,000 wings during the two-day event, and just like Manchester, will have 20 different street food traders, restaurants and BBQ teams.

Manchester and Bristol aren't the first stops on the Wing Fest tour, though. Events have also been held in London, Birmingham and Derby earlier this summer.

For a full list of suppliers and a day-by-day schedule for the two celebrations as they approach, head on over to Wing Fest's official Instagram account which has photos from events in London, Birmingham and Derby.

The official Twitter page also provides fans with an exciting taste of what to expect.
