After some bleak news for all of our fellow Welshies this week.. we have an awesome announcement to make. We are thrilled to be working alongside the XL Event Lab on their incredible Parking Lot Social: Winter Festivals drive-in events across the UK this December!

There's no doubt that Covid hit the event industry like a ton of bricks this year... meaning drive-in events have become all the rage, being socially distant by nature. With drive-in cinemas popping up in every corner of the UK this summer, XL Event Lab have hit the industry by storm, announcing their Parking Lot Socials. These events are not just your average drive-in cinemas by any means, from Christmas Pantos to comedy nights, family socials to Christmas movies, they're absolutely not to be missed.

What would an event be without street food? Well, this is where we come in! Calling all street food traders, you know the drill. Interested in trading at some awesome drive-in events this Christmas (why wouldn't you be)? See below for the full list events:

London: 3rd - 7th December 2020

Liverpool: 9th -13th December 2020

Cardiff: 9th - 13th December 2020

Corporation Yard

Here at Street Food Warehouse HQ, there's nothing we love more than exploring new foodie hot stops in and around Cardiff. Our latest find being Corporation Yard, just a stone's throw away from our office.

Corporation Yard has been an unused yard for some time, located smack bang in the middle of Canton, before some foodie fanatics transformed it into what we know it to be today. From coffee to street food to cocktails, it truly is a social hub for the young professionals of Cardiff.

Meet The Traders

As street food fiends, when discovering Corporation Yard for ourselves, we of course wanted to right into the thick of it and find out who's trading. We found some newbies and some cult favourites...

Jollof House Party

Making their street food debut at Corporation Yard, is Jollof House Party! They're the perfect example of a brilliant lockdown start-up. Owner, Tumi Williams, found himself with a plethora of free time when lockdown hit, meaning he had to put his music career on pause. With a love for the Nigerian classic, Tumi decided to turn his passion into a new street food venture! All we can say is we cannot wait to get our hands on some veggie Jollof Rice.. watch this space.

Well, what do we even need to say? Makasih are a firm favourite with the Street Food Warehouse gang, making appearances at many of our events over the years. It's been a pleasure to watch these guys expand into their brand spanking new street food van (or, Eddie... as the Makasih gang named him). We can't wait to be reunited with some Malaysian Fried Chicken at a Street Food Warehouse event, but for now... Corporation Yard is definitely on the cards for a street food fix!

Makasih Street Food


After popping up at the Welsh Street Food Awards this year, we haven't been able to get Pwdin out of our minds. First of all, we LOVE to see a new dessert trader on the radar. Especially when their ethos is all about championing Welsh produce. It's safe to say we're super excited to get a taste of a Pwdin Pudding!
