What happened in last year’s Silver Anniversary 25th National BBQ Week

As a result of the Covid lockdown and to celebrate a Quarter Century of Better British BBQ the 2021, 25th National BBQ Week was moved from its traditional end of May/beginning June slot to early July and was also extended to two weeks.

Despite all of the Covid related planning & execution issues, the event was the most successful National BBQ Week, ever, with RoadShows directly engaging with 100k and delivering a similar level of BBQ samples & BarbiBags. Overall cumulative Media coverage was 200 million+ with Social & web interactions over 200k. Targeted consumer engagement was excellent with all those visiting the RoadShows, full of praise for the event & sampling. All sponsors were delighted with the overall campaign delivery!

And here’s what some of our 2021 sponsors said:

Susannah, MM – Beefsteak Club “Thrilled with the campaign reach & RoI” /
Tory, SBM – Birds Eye Green Cuisine “Super pleased with the results!” /
Amar, SBM – Budweiser “Awesome results, Cheers to a sizzling partnership!” /
Laura, SBM – Bull’s-Eye “A great participation that worked really well!” /
Mike, CM – Sainsbury’s/Cranswick “Delighted with the campaign!”
