Get your napkins on the ready as there’s a new festival in town and it promises to be finger licking dirty!

Experimental street food pioneers Taste and Liquor presents – the brilliantly titled – Kebabingham! Birmingham’s first ever festival dedicated to the humble kebab.

Who can honestly claim never to have wandered the city streets in the wee hours that come between clubbing and bedtime, in search of a dirty kebab?
