Birmingham’s original street food event, Digbeth Dining Club, has won the title of Best Street Food Event at the British Street Food Awards!
The British Street Food Awards has become an end-of-season institution since it was founded in 2009 by Richard Johnson, food critic, journalist, and ambassador of the British street food revolution.

Launching just over a year ago at Spotlight Bar at Lower Trinity Street, Digbeth Dining Club has become a cult Friday-night institution, using their website and Twitter to drum up a storm ahead of each event. Slowly growing its portfolio to almost thirty traders, all NCASS associated, showcasing a wide variety of food from across the world.
Digbeth Dining Club Founder, Jack Brabant (pictured), was delighted to be given the title – voted for by members of the public – at the awards ceremony held in London:
To say we are chuffed to bits at receiving the ‘Best Street Food Event’ is an understatement. I have the utmost respect for Richard, the British Street Food Awards, the traders and everyone that champions the street food movement.
Birmingham’s food scene is finally being recognised across the world and we are proud to be part of this city. With Birmingham now having four Michelin-starred restaurants, this is an exciting time for food and the city as a whole.
Digbeth Dining Club will be expanding across our fair city to host an array of street food parties and bespoke events so watch this space for exciting announcements! For further information and weekly line-up details visit the Digbeth Dining Club website.
Congratulations to Digbeth Dining Club for their award, and for being another reason why Digbeth is Good!
