The Bucket List 2018
London's fried chicken adventure returns!
When: Friday 20 & Saturday 21 July
Time: Fri 6-11pm / Sat 11-5pm / Sat 6-11pm


** FRIDAY TICKETS NOW SOLD OUT. Tickets available on the door on Friday if you come down before 8pm. Saturday tickets for both sessions still available **

Last year we threw  London’s first fried chicken battle and you went crazy for it; fried chicken lovers gathered from all over London and beyond to indulge in one big hot bed of fried chicken talent and vote for the best. GOOD NEWS: WE’RE BRINGING IT BACK THIS YEAR!

The fried chicken game in London is still strong as ever and we’ve picked out some of the best bird bosses out there to go head-to-head under the King’s Cross Canopy this July. 8 traders / 2 days / 1 winner  – and YOU decide who gets crowned the 2018 KERB Colonel, knocking last year’s reigning champ, Petare, off the top spot to claim the golden cock. Or will Petare’s Venezuelan masa-fried wonder win again?

Expect flavour creations from our traders plus some VERY exciting new guests this year. For the first time ever, South London’s favourite fried chicken fast food franchise, Morley’s will be “crossing the road” to come North and serve up chicken at KERB’s Bucket List.  Is the high street really dead? Or will chain shop Morley’s win the hearts away from KERBanist Kolkati’s Keralan cruncher, Bian Dang’s Taiwanese drumsticks, Mother Flipper’s Korean wings and da ja chicken’s Malaysian-twisted 2018 entry? You decide.
