Unleash Your Belly Beast

British produce, American cooking. A meat and music festival invented in the USA nine years ago, Meatopia unleashes man's primal nature with a wholly carnivorous feast.

Visit Tobacco Dock on the 6th & 7th September for the best barbie you'll ever have. While musicians sizzle on stage, burgers will sizzle on the grill, as thirty-one of the world's best chefs cook up forty-two unique dishes to devour.

General admission is £31.80 with under 14s going free. Once inside, 'Meatbucks' will be your currency. Each dish is one Meatbuck, and each Meatbuck is £5.

There is a different menu every day, and here are just a few of the choices:


BBQ Whole slow cooked Goat tacos by Neil Rankin
Spicy Lamb Köfte Lavash by Selin Kiazim
Coke smoked Chicken with charred bourbon corn by Ross Clarke


BBQ Duck Neck Bologna by Jonathon Sawyer
MeisterShack Burger by Mark Rosati
Yorkshire Hare leg with Collard greens by Quinton Bennett

Meatopia's standards are high, and promise nothing but the best. That means ethically sourced British meat cooked over open coal or log fires. The chefs use the whole animal, nose to tail, so nothing is wasted. Your meals will be accompanied by artisan ales, fine wines, lively spirits, and lots of entertainment. This includes art installations, workshops, and live performances.

Come on down, unleash your inner beast, and add a couple of notches to your trouser belt before arrival.
