Meatopia 2019, London, and Meatopia Dublin
August 30 - September 1
Meat lovers should head to London’s Tobacco Dock from 30 August to 1 September for Meatopia, the celebration of sustainable, quality meat, alternatively take the trip to Dublin for the Guinness X Meatopia in July.
Founded by Josh Ozersky in the States, Meatopia was brought to the UK by Richard H Turner. Now turned seven, the festival uses ethically-sourced meat, cooked over ethically-sourced wood and charcoal by top chefs. If you wish to read its manifesto, you will find it here.
In addition to serving the most flavoursome meat, the festival will feature workshops and live cooking demonstrations, as well as an eclectic bunch of live performers and DJs. There will also be four bars to quench your first after all that barbecuing.
