Event organisers say the event will be a safe place for dogs during the bonfire weekend

It’s an event which is sure to add some warmth to a crisp autumnal day.

Another popular street food festival is returning to Newcastle city centre this week – and this time it will celebrate some of the best Indian cuisine that the North East has to offer. Local street food vendors will go head-to-head at The Argie Bhaji street food battle to be crowned the best Indian street food dish.

The event will take place at Wylam Brewery, in Exhibition Park, from 3pm on Friday, November 4 and midday on Saturday, November 5. And Argie Bhaji event organisers, 44Events, say the event will be a safe place for dogs during the Bonfire Night weekend with no fireworks set off at the event and instead will provide some extra treats for dogs.

A spokesperson for 44Events said: “Every event we celebrate Naans best friend / the local K9 community. We love pooches. So we want to mark Wylam as an official safe place for dogs during this year’s bonfire weekend. No fireworks will be set off, instead we’ll make sure there are some extra treats for dogs.”

The Argie Bhaji street food battle will be serving up an array of curries and Indian-inspired favourites in a cosy setting, with comfy corners and warm fires where people can relax and enjoy their food. Foodies will then cast their vote for the best dish and figures will be combined with the number of portions served of each dish.

Each dish costs one token, which can be purchased at entrance to Wylam Brewery for £4 each. And vendors are expected to serve between 15,000 and 20,000 portions between them over the course of the weekend.

Among year’s vendors taking on The Argie Bhaji battle are: My Dehli, Big Fat Indian Kitchen, SnackWalla, Dabbawal, Burger Bro’s, Redheads Mac n Cheese, The Funky IndianWali, Scream for Pizza, Jam Jar and Argie Chips.

Entry into the event is free and children and well behaved dogs are more than welcome to attend. When the food stops, Wylam Brewery continues the party into the night with DJs providing the soundtrack throughout the evening.
