Bird food: Finger lickin' fried chicken from eight traders

If you’re a fried chicken fan, this one will sound clucking great.

Street food masters Kerb are bringing together London’s best bird batterers for a succulent showdown of epic proportions.

Across the evening on Friday May 5 and all day on Saturday May 6, Bucket List will bring together eight chicken-focused traders.

They will assemble in King's Cross and cook up signature and special takes on the capital’s fried favourite. Visitors will get a portion of each one included in the ticket price, and at the end will be able to vote for their favourite at the Bucket List Wall of Fame.

On top of all that, there will be live music while drinks including craft beer and mojitos will be on hand to buy throughout, along with extra sides, sauces and poultry portions.

The South East Cakery will also be serving sundaes for those with a sweet tooth.

Oh, and there'll also be robo-chicken racing. Oh yes.

The event runs from 6-11pm on Friday May 5 and from both 12-5pm and 6-11pm on Saturday May 6. Tickets are available now and start at £20 for early birds.
