As well as new categories, the Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards will this year be held at a new venue.

This year, the awards will be held at one of the city’s newest and biggest event venues – The Chocolate Factory – home to the phenomenally popular Bustler Market.

Situated in Castleward, on the junction of John Street and Siddals Road, it offers around 30,000 sq ft of blank canvas to host events that to date include beer festivals, weddings, corporate events, away days and craft fairs.

Featuring an on-site bar, giant TV screens and enough seating to comfortably accommodate 1,500 people, The Chocolate Factory is flexible enough to meet the needs of any event.

The Chocolate Factory is operated by the team behind Bustler Market, Derby’s award-winning street food market, which is held there on a regular basis.

Managing director Liv Pritchard said: “Our move to The Chocolate Factory has enabled us to take things to the next level, with a variety of brilliant spaces that can be adapted to host a wide range of events.

“We now see Bustler as one element of a programme of public and private events that utilise this space to its fullest potential.

“We are really excited to be hosting the Food and Drink Awards this year.

“We’ve long believed it should be an important date for the hospitality industry in and around Derby and we look forward to turning it into a huge celebration at the end of what has been an incredibly challenging time for our sector.

“We are proud to be working with Marketing Derby on this and can’t wait to celebrate with everyone in October.”
