Is there anything better than decent grub and a good time? Probably not. Northern Soul photographer, Jon Aldridge headed to the British Street Food Awards at GRUB Food Fair at Manchester’s Mayfield Depot and took some brilliant snaps of the event. Filled with lots of colour, atmosphere and – most importantly – more good food than you can shake a breadstick at.

The British Street Food Awards headed to Manchester with 17 of the UK’s best street food traders in tow. Up for the grabs is not only the chance to be crowned the champion, but the chance to represent Britain in the European Street Food Awards taking place in Berlin.

The event was full of free tastings of all the competition dishes and was accompanied by GRUB’s own craft beer festival.
