Orbital to dish up street food feast at pop-up festival

Orbital will bring street food flavours from across the globe to Swindon this weekend (10th & 11th June) with its Eats from the Streets pop-up foodie festival.

The festival will see artisan vendors serve up a whole host of cuisines from around the world, including Russian dumplings and kebabs from Soviet Kitchen, and loaded American hot dogs and burgers.

The Rovin’ Bar will also be mixing up its signature jam jar drinks.

Street food stalls will be serving up between 11am and 6pm on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June.

Unlike other food festivals, visitors will be able to tuck into their food on board a converted double decker Routemaster bus, which has been transformed into a dining area.

Eats from the Streets is returning to the centre for a second time, following a successful debut last year.

Jamie Turner, centre manager, said: “The Eats from the Streets concept was borne out of the pop-up festival and street food trends. As the popularity of both show no sign of slowing, it’s no surprise that we’re hosting the event again this year.

“We’ve really enjoyed bringing new and exciting foods from across the globe to shoppers’ doorsteps, and this year’s event is shaping up to be even bigger and better – with more stalls and more flavours on offer!

“It’s great to be able to support local traders alongside our national retailers.”

Independent vendors confirmed include Wanna Pull (pulled meat sandwiches), Soviet Kitchen (eastern European dishes), Tipple Truck (artisan beers), The Rovin’ Bar (jam jar cocktails and prosecco), Grouch Coffee, The Street Diner (hot dogs and burgers) and Moonshine Dining (meat with vegetable noodles).
