Friday 27 May will see people across the country celebrating their love of fish and chips as they come together on National Fish & Chip Day!
Fish and chip lovers in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire will be joining the rest of the UK to celebrate again as the Eric’s group of award-winning fish and chip restaurants will be marking the occasion with some fun competitions and an online hacks feature by owner, Eric.
There will be prizes to be won for customers who find a fish shaped chip in their meal. Eric’s also want to celebrate the community by asking for nominations for their local hero. The person with the most votes will win a night’s stay ay Titchwell Manor Hotel, located close to the Thornham branch of Eric’s.
In 2021, National Fish & Chip Day was one of the biggest awareness days of the year in the UK with over 50 million people hearing, seeing, or reading something about it, so don’t miss your chance to be part of it! Pop in on the day and join the celebration!
Eric’s have been serving fresh fish and chips to the local community and visitors to Norfolk and Cambridgeshire since 2015 and they’re asking customers to come together to celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking into a portion of fresh and tasty fish and chips.
Eric said: “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of traditionally fried chips – the only debate is whether you top it with salt, vinegar, classic or signature sauce, mushy peas, or a pickled onion!
“So, celebrate British fish and chips and join in with National Fish & Chip Day on Friday 27 May by coming down to Eric’s in Thornham, Holt or St Ives and enjoying a good old-fashioned Friday night fish supper…or lunch!”
National Fish & Chip Day is about giving fish and chips the recognition it deserves and helping to secure its position as the nation’s favourite dish. The event usually takes place on the first Friday in June every year; however, because of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, is being held a week early this year, and it already has the backing of key players in the industry.
The national event is once again being championed by trade organisation, The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association, who represent packers and distributors of oils and fats in the UK. NEODA President Gary Lewis comments: “National Fish & Chip Day has become more popular each year and in 2022 we want it to be even bigger! It’s a celebration of the stars who work hard to bring Brits their favourite traditional takeaway. We want to bring the whole industry together to celebrate and showcase the great British institution that is Fish and Chips.
“To help build support in anticipation for the event, we are urging people to start tweeting with the hashtag #NationalFishandChipDay.”
