How could we miss an opportunity to BBQ with our far-away friends?!

We're carrying on the virtual Friday Bar tradition with a packed evening of socialising and entertainment, all from the comfort of your own home!

Share your best BBQ recipes in the virtual cook book and let's cook along together

The virtual grill and bar will open at 5pm BST on Friday August 5 - come along and catch up with your favourite Umbracians!

Location: Zoom


A BBQ in the UK?! Are you crazy?!

Quite possibly, yes. But we're hoping for some good old British sunshine! Failing that, we're choosing venues with suitable facilities so the event can still go ahead whatever the weather

I have special dietary needs

We will aim to cater for as many different dietary needs as possible. If you have any specific requirements, please let the organisers know ahead of time

Will there be talks?

This is a social event and so there are no official talks planned – it's your choice whether you talk shop or pork chop! (*pork chops subject to availability)

My city isn't on the list

Oh no! If you think there would be demand for your very own Umbraco BBQ and your city isn't on the list - get in touch!

Is this organised by Umbraco HQ?

This is a community run and is not affiliated with Umbraco HQ in any way. However, fingers crossed for someone from HQ making an appearance!
