IT’S A SPICY SEPTEMBER FOR MAGPIE
They say variety is the spice of life, and we think the World Curry Festival has got bags of it.
Over the past few years we have been working with Zulfi Karim on his vision for making Yorkshire a global destination for good curry. This year we have worked together to grow the festival from a weekend event in Bradford to a 15 day event across Bradford and Leeds. We are proud to be the official marketing partner for the spiciest festival in Yorkshire.
Between September 15 and September 29 more than 50 different events will be taking place across Bradford and Leeds including an appearance by Ken Hom OBE, who be attending the festival to receive a lifetime achievement award for his contribution to developing and promoting Asian cuisine.
Earlier this year, World Curry Festival lost all of their possessions in a mill fire which happened whilst the festival was on tour in Malaysia. For a moment we weren’t sure the festival would go ahead this year but, having lost everything, we were able to rethink the entire event and rise from the ashes with hottest programme the festival has ever seen!
Now in its seventh year, Zulfi Karim, Founder of the World Curry Festival says; “Our key objective is to bring people together and curry is a great way to do this. We have an exciting new format, which has created new venues and partners across the region. Special events include our launch at the magnificent Bradford Cathedral, as well as an appearance from the legendary Ken Hom OBE.”
The World Curry Festival is a vibrant, fun and fresh event that brings people together in celebration of their love of food, culture and entertainment. Traditionally held over a long weekend, the event has attracted a huge following since it was first established in Leeds in 2010. The festival now takes place in Yorkshire and Malaysia each year.
