Hawker Yard Birmingham goes Vegan: Sunday 23rd October. 


This Sunday 23rd October Brum Yum Yum and The Vegan Grindhouse by Vegan Vox are re joining forces to bring you Hawker Yard goes Vegan.

The all Vegan street food event in the heart of Birmingham city centre is at Hawker Yard Pershore Street B5 4RR next to The Arcadian. 

From 12-5pm, you can come and eat tasty vegan street food, buy vegan beers, wines, spirits and cocktails, meet like minded people, buy from vegan stalls and find our more about the fabulous work of their chosen animal rescue centre – Grace’s Rest who will receive a percentage of all takings on the day. 


Following on from our two previous joint events with BRUM YUM YUM in Kings Heath which were vegetarian/vegan, that after campaigning this event is now all Vegan. 

If the event  is successful, hopefully a regular Vegan street food market in Birmingham will be hosted. so please bring all of your friends, vegans, vegetarians and not yet vegans. Families and dogs welcome and undercover seating provided. 

If anyone is able to volunteer on the day to hand out flyers outside the Bull Ring, in the Arcadian, Snow Hill and at Grand Central, that would be great and will be rewarded with a free meal!

So support a fantastic event. 

Also appearing at Hawker Yard are The Vegan Pizza company, Sri-Licious with Sri Lankan Street food, all vegan brewery Twisted Barrel ales for Vegan beer, Vegetropolis, for organic fruit, veg etc. Fresh juices and shots from U-Juice, and a range of gluten free cakes and bakes and desserts and fermented drinks bar from the Gut Hut. 

Looks a fab line up!

The Official Press release:

BIRMINGHAM’S ONLY ALL-VEGAN STREET FOOD EVENT COMES TO HAWKER YARD THIS SUNDAY

This Sunday, Birmingham’s new purpose-built street food venue serves up an all-vegan special.

Hawker Yard Goes Vegan, the only 100% vegan street food event in the region, will feature dishes freshly cooked by leading street food chefs, showcasing entirely vegan menus from around the world.

The pioneers of Birmingham’s street food renaissance are collaborating with leading Midlands street food company, The Vegan Grindhouse to host the event on Sunday 23rd October, from 12-5pm, Hawker Yard, 62-70 Pershore St, B5 4RU, next to Arcadian.

 The street food lineup includes The Vegan Grindhouse with ‘vegan junkfood’ like handmade burgers and huge hotdogs; The Vegan Pizza Company; Sri-Licious with Sri Lankan street food classics, plus Caribbean, Mexican, Indian and more.

As well as all the street food, local all-vegan brewery Twisted Barrel Ales are taking over the bars, and there will be stall with organic fruit and vegetables from Vegetropolis, animal-friendly clothing and cosmetics, a fermented drinks bar from The Happy Gut Hut, fresh juices and shots from U-Juice, and a range of vegan and gluten-free cakes and desserts.

The event is supporting Grace’s Rest, a not-for-profit organisation that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes animals in crisis.

 Lisa Burbidge-Brown, Co-Owner of The Vegan Grindhouse and prominent vegan blogger said,

“We are thrilled to be bringing this hugely popular event to Hawker Yard. It’s a great way to showcase quality meat-free street food and raise money for a good cause at the same time, and now the event is all-vegan it’s even more exciting!”

“There’s some amazing vegan street food in Birmingham, from some of the most popular street food chefs. More people are looking to reduce or eliminate their meat intake due to health, environmental or ethical reasons and this is a great opportunity for people to try exciting new vegan and vegetarian food and see why going meat-free is a viable alternative diet and lifestyle.”

 Hawker Yard Founder, Duncan Stanley added,

“Here at Brum Yum Yum we’ve always set out to prove that street food isn’t just about the meat-in-a-bun classics and I firmly believe that a lot of the best street foods out there are the vegan and veggie dishes. What better way to spend a Sunday than stuffing your face with some of the tastiest and most interesting meat-free meals in town?! Add in the vegan bar, the side stalls and the great vibes, and this is the animal-friendly street party that Birmingham deserves!”

 So get down to Hawker Yard on Sunday 23rd October for a day of plant-based family fun at Hawker Yard Goes Vegan.

For up to date information in the run up to the event and for the full street food lineups follow @brumyumyum and @vegangrindhouse on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Vegan Grindhouse are the only completely vegan/veggie #streetfood business in and around the Midlands. They provide the best in vegan streetfood and snacks brought to the public by Vegan Vox.

A real Vegan/Veggie food hero.

The Vegan Grindhouse are a small indipendent business run by husband and wife team Andy and Lisa. They are bringing great quality vegan food options within the street food scene.

Inspired by the premise that their are very few vegan options available on the street food circuit the idea was formed to open up a completely vegan 1950’s American style mobile diner on the road.

Their menu is mouthwatering. Their food is amazing, full of flavour and very tempting. (To meat eaters and vegans/veggies)

They offer:

Gourmet Hot Dogs
Chilli dogs
Chilli cheese (vegan) dog
Gourmet burgers
Chilli and Nachos
Shakes
Toasties
Ice Cream
Cookies, muffins, a selection of cakes including cupcakes.

Plus their are gluton free options available.

Lisa runs the Vegan Vox blog, she is a food writer, and passionate vegan. See the Vegan Grindhouse website for details.

The Vegan Grindhouse are lovely people, make sure you seek them out on the street food circuit. You can find them regularly at Brum Yum Yum in Kings Heath and at the Square in Birmingham City Centre, at Digbeth Dining club and at The Victoria Square Sketts Birmingham Food fair.

Part of The Vegan Grindhouse experience is the Mega Burger challenge, eat a triple burger which is a 3 beef style quarter pounder, 3 slices of vegan cheese, 3 bacon style rashers, served with a triple layer bun, gherkins, and jalapenos.

If you can eat it, then you win a Vegan Grindhouse T’shirt:) plus have your picture taken to prove it.

They also do a superb mushroom burger.

I love The Vegan Grindhouse, so make sure you make them a part of your veggie and vegan foodie crawl.
