Is it a food festival? Is it a music festival? Even better… it's both, but with a retro spin. So bring your appetite and your dancing shoes to Assembly Roxy, 20th — 22nd October!
Meats & Beats is a feast of meatylicious street food — mainly the sticky, juicy, BBQ'd variety — mixed with all your favourite tunes from the past five decades. It's as much about music as it is about food, but most importantly it's about having a great night out with mates.
Every hour the music changes decade, starting with the pop classics of the 70, working our way through the disco anthems of the 80s, dance tunes of the 90s and teen pop bands of the noughties until we reach 2017.
Sizzling steaks, sauce-dripping tower burgers, racks of sticky ribs, meat-topped mac 'n' cheese and meat-packed Quesadillas are just some of the dishes you can tuck into at communal feasting tables in the main hall. Confirmed collaborations include The Pitt, Kilted Lobster, The Mac Shack, Bruadair and Wild & Smoky.
Pop-up bars from Stewart Brewing, Fyne Ales, The Cocktail Kitchen, Poco Prosecco and Villeneuve Wines will serve craft beers, cocktails, wines and prosecco, and we have chicken-wing-eating competitions, dance-offs, and retro TV Game Shows such as Blind Date, Catchphrase and Blankety Blank in the upstairs theatre for a trip-down-memory-lane entertainment.
