Leicester’s monthly street food social, Canteen, has today announced that the event will be moving to a new location following this Friday’s event. 

The event has been held at the LCB Depot in the Cultural Quarter since its inception in early 2017. Rapidly growing to become one of Leicester’s most popular regular events, Canteen has brought some of the UK’s top street food traders to the city. Organisers behind Canteen are quick to reassure punters that the event will still be continuing but will have a new home. Organisers are in talks with potential venues to secure a spot for a new home, with an announcement on the new location to be made soon.

A spokesperson for Canteen commented, “We’re very grateful to LCB Depot for playing a role in the creation of Canteen. When we first approached them about housing a new monthly street food event they supported us right away. We’re now in a position where it makes sense for all parties to move it to a new location and we’ll be updating customers soon on where that will be. In the meantime come down on Friday 24 August to enjoy one last party at the Depot.”
