Curry Capital of Britain

This event in 2015 was the best yet and was won for a fifth consecutive time by Bradford. In conjunction with local media 4 restaurants were chosen to represent each city and then scored by judges to make up 40% of the marks. The balance of the marking depended on submissions from city councils and tourist offices to create a total. Previous winners are 2001 London West : 2002 Glasgow : 2003 Glasgow : 2004 Bradford : 2005 Birmingham : 2006 Glasgow : 2007 Leicester - 2010 Glasgow - 2011 Bradford. If you wish to nominate a town or city please email vote@fedrest.com .

The Poppadomathon

The Poppadomathon offers a chance for everyone to get involved in National Curry Week. It is fun, even healthy, and will be a great support to the Find Your Feet Charity. If you can manage 100m - running or walking - and can pass a poppadom without breaking it then this is for you and your friends. You may even become a record holder for 2016. Check it out here.

Great British Curry Quiz

If you want to run a fun Great British Curry Quiz at home, at school or for your customers if you run a restaurant or pub, we will supply the questions and answers and other information free on request to groveint@aol.com or 01372 745242. We have several 20 question sets with full confidential answers so a quiz is easy to run either by a quiz master to a group or using a QI panel style for an audience to watch. What easier way of having fun and raising money?

Curry Pub of the Year

Many pubs all over Britain offer a special curry night once a week with a special 'pint and a curry' package giving real value for money. In 2016 we will again be asking pubs to get their customers to vote at vote@fedrest.com giving the name and location of the pub to determine the Curry Pub of the Year. Alternatively pubs can collect their own votes and submit them in bulk as long as they have individual names and contact emails in the event random validation may be required.

Sports Club Curry Night

If you run a sports club such as cricket, non league football, rugby, tennis etc, why not link with a local Indian restaurant and have a fun Curry Night at your club and raise money for charity and the club. If you want to make it a Quiz Night we will supply the curry quizzes. Contact groveint@aol.com or 01372 745242
