'Traders bring a vibrancy to the city. Their passion and drive to produce amazing dishes and share them with people is something to be valued. Creating these pockets of food communities, sharing peoples journeys and connecting over food, that's what its about, that's what brings  joy. I love who I work with and who I've met on the way' Vanessa Gilpin

Food is a connector...for centuries its been a commodity that brings people together. The street food scene in the UK is at an exciting stage, so many people are starting food businesses and bringing their culture into the public eye. We are passionate about what this means and want to create a platform for more people to do what they love and share their stories through food.

Vanessa Gilpin- Founder// Mood-board Maverick

Hey There! I started strEAT Events in 2016. After working for 6 years running customer facing experiential events I made a decision to start something of my own. My passion for food, community and the ever-changing nature of the industry made me choose to specialise in street-food. I am hugely creative, and a natural networker, I love thinking outside the box and letting my imagination flow.

My plan... to create the most vibrant and tasty events all over the globe. To bring people together and grow supportive networks of food 'eventreprenures'! 

Happiest When: I am exploring and getting lost in new places or on...the dancefloor!

We are currently looking to grow the strEAT Team as we take on some new and exciting opportunities. If you are:

- Passionate about food, people and creating excellent experiences?

- Have experience in Event Management or keen to learn more?

- Good with words, creative, visual and have a perseverant sprit?
