Bradford’s reputation as the Curry Capital of the UK has been undisputed for six years running, establishing the city as the premier destination for curry connoisseurs across the country. And what better way to celebrate the very best of the best than with the prestigious Bradford Curry Awards?

This much-anticipated event made its debut in 2018 to great acclaim, and year two in 2019 was an even bigger success. Unfortunately, the pandemic put a temporary halt to the celebrations in 2020, but after a two-year hiatus, the awards returned in July 2022 with a three-day extravaganza that left a lasting impression on all who attended.

The event was not just about celebrating the incredible curry industry in Bradford, but also about immersing visitors in a truly sensory experience. At the heart of the celebration was a vibrant curry mela, where thousands of people enjoyed sights, sounds, and smells that took them on a culinary journey they would never forget. From fascinating masterclasses and live food demonstrations to roti-making and much more, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

But the highlight of the event was undoubtedly the glitzy awards evening, where hundreds of people packed the venue to witness the crowning of the winners of the annual Bradford Curry Awards. With a stunning array of entertainment, food, and celebratory activities, it was the perfect culmination of a truly unforgettable celebration of Bradford’s world-famous curry industry.
