You can now become an official chicken wing judge at Wing Fest Manchester

Wing Fest

The UK's biggest chicken wing festival, Wing Fest, touches down in Manchester this summer and it is going to be one hell of a weekend.

The two day festival, which takes place on Saturday 14th September and Sunday 15th September on First Street South in Manchester city centre, will be home to street food traders, bbq teams and pop-ups who will all be competing for the title of 'UK's best chicken wings'.

And you could be one of the lucky people who decides who makes those winning wings.

Event organisers are looking for one lucky wing lover to add to their celebrity judging panel, who will collectively decide which vendor throws down the mostest when it comes to grilling chicken wings.

There will be three judges in total – two of which will be celebrity guests – and their task will be to sample 40 wings from each festival vendor (40 vendors, 1 wing per judge) before sitting down and deciding who made a lasting impression.

They will then choose their top 3 wings from each category before helping to present the prestigious awards on stage.

Each judge will get to sample 20 buffalo wings and 20 wild wings from each festival trader. It is the ultimate accolade and experience for any wing fan. You will also be provided with drinks throughout the day.

The competition has JUST launched on Wing Fest's Instagram today (Wednesday 10 July) – so head over now by clicking this link and check out their latest post.

However, if you just want to enjoy the festival as an average chicken wing-loving citizen, you can still purchase tickets for the event here – but you'll need to hurry as they are selling quickly!
