Due to the success of last year’s event, Hospitality Review NI – will once again call on the industry to down their tools on Monday 9th June, for what is now its annual charity fundraiser in aid of Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke (NICHS). This year the event will be themed Hats and Shades – something for all weather conditions in Northern Ireland.

The Hudson Bar on Belfast’s Gresham Street is set once again to welcome over 200 chefs, waiters and bar tenders from across the province for a charitable themed barbecue supported by the industry’s suppliers.

Nicola Daly, manager of Hospitality Review, said: “Due to the success of last year’s event, we are delighted for this event to make a return in 2014. Hospitality employees are only too often viewed as the key to many others having a good night; now it’s their turn to relax and enjoy a night in the company of industry peers, whilst raising money for a local charity.”

The barbecue is supported by Bacardi Brown-Forman, United Wine Merchants, Tennent’s NI, Heineken, Crossgar Pallas Foodservice and Hendersons, among others, which will be providing their products to raise money for NICHS, a medical charity working for the prevention and alleviation of chest, heart and stroke illnesses in Northern Ireland. These illnesses account for more than 6,000 deaths every year.

Hastings Europa Hotel manager and star of BBC Lobby Lives James McGinn will be host for the evening, with well-known chefs Niall McKenna (James Street South) & Dean Coppard (Uluru, Armagh)   teaming up with food suppliers to be on barbecue duties, while DJ Paschal will take up residence on the decks.

Admission to the event is strictly ticket only and tickets MUST be purchased in advance. Tickets priced at £20 are currently available by contacting Nicola on 028 9078 3234.

We are collecting prizes for the raffle on the night, all donations welcome for this event.
