The flames on the grills will set alight for the hospitality industry at the end of this summer when the industry downs its tools for a party.
Belfast’s The Dirty Onion is set to welcome over 300 managers, chefs, waiters and bar staff from across Northern Ireland on Monday 2nd September for the BBQ supported by a number of suppliers, offering an opportunity for the trade to take a night off and network while raising money for two charitable causes.

The event will support Northern Ireland’s Cancer Fund for Children and Alzheimer’s NI. A number of leading industry suppliers will be providing their products and services pro bono to assist with fundraising including Daly Recruitment, ASG & Partners, Hastings Hotels, Hendersons Foodservice, Beannchor, United Wine Merchants and Molson Coors.
Nichola Daly, committee member and creator of the event, said: “Due to the success of this event previously, I have been inundated with requests from suppliers and industry staff for another BBQ. Along with a committee of industry representatives, we have joined forces to work on organising a fun end of summer event for good causes. Hospitality employees are only too often viewed as the key to many others having a good night; now it’s their turn to relax and enjoy a night in the company of industry peers.”
Admission to the event is by ticket only with tickets available to purchase online. Priced at £20 each ticket gains admission, BBQ and two complimentary drinks plus entertainment.
