Food and music fans can enjoy an evening of ‘eats and beats’ in the stunning setting of Kenilworth Castle in August thanks to a brand new event from a Warwickshire company.
CJ’s Events Warwickshire, which runs markets, festivals and events across the county and beyond, is launching its inaugural ‘Evening Eats & Beats’ event on Friday, 19th August.
The event will see the castle’s iconic ruins host an array of street food traders dishing up delicious delights alongside bars serving local ales and cocktails and live music from up-and-coming artists, all set against the backdrop of the famous historic site.
Street food will include grilled cheese toasties from That’s Mature and masala fish and chips from ‘Indian chippy’ Cheeky Maharaja, who both cater for events across the Midlands, along with burgers and sausages from Mister V and sweet treats from The Brownie Boss, both hailing from Leamington Spa. Drinks will include cocktails from Gingers Bar, beer courtesy of Fosse Way Brewery and Prosecco and gin from The Little Fizz Van.
Alongside a great selection of food and drinks, entertainment will be provided by musicians Annabell Elizabeth, Cole Stock and Sonia Ruth and Leamington-based Twisted Minds.
The event will run from 6pm until 10pm and is the first of its kind at Kenilworth Castle.
Jamie Walker, Director at CJ’s Events, said: “The idea of Evening Eats & Beats is to bring the local community together after what has been a difficult few years for us all.
“The beautiful grounds of Kenilworth Castle is the perfect place for people to visit, relax and socialise so we wanted to give them the chance to do just that with great food and music in a really unique setting.”
Kenilworth Castle and its Elizabethan Gardens has played a key role in English history, from one of the country’s most formidable medieval fortresses to later being transformed by Robert Dudley into a spectacular palace to impress his queen.
It remains a popular tourist attraction, with the opportunity to explore its medieval keep, climb its Tudor towers and enjoy unique gardens, but the Evening Eats & Beats event will give people the chance to enjoy it for an evening along with great food, drink and music.
The Evening Eats & Beats event is one of several festivals and events organised by CJ’s Events Warwickshire. For more information on upcoming events across the Midlands visit https://www.cjseventswarwickshire.co.uk/
