summer bbq series at melbourne hall, derbyshire: with special guests gennaro contaldo and matt pritchard.

Looking for something new to do this summer in Derbyshire? Love the beautiful countryside and getting involved with local events? Even better, a keen foodie? Live At Melbourne Hall are pleased to announce an evening for foodie lovers on 24th June 2022. Whether a lover of Italian cuisine or plant-based junk food, there's something for everyone. As the stunning walled garden is set to be taken over by the delicious cooking sights and smells from celebrity chefs Gennaro Contaldo and Matt Pritchard for its inaugural Summer BBQ Series. 

With exquisite menus designed by the chefs especially for the event, guests can expect a variety of food stations covering a range of meats, fish, sides, salads and more - with Gennaro and Matt pitching in with the cooking! The £54.45 ticket price includes a 3 course BBQ menu and a drink on arrival and once our guest chefs have fed everyone, they will take to the stage for a Q&A hosted by The Brewhouse’s own celebrity Chef, Joe Hurd. (And if you haven't been down yet to try his delicious food and pop into the Italian deli - add that to your list too!)

Born and raised on the Amalfi Coast, Gennaro Contaldo is widely known as the Italian legend who taught Jamie Oliver all he knows about Italian cooking - and will be sharing his secrets with Melbourne on the 24th. Formerly known as the front man of MTV’s Dirty Sanchez and now 'Dirty Vegan', Matt Pritchard has left his pranking days behind for his love of vegan food, health and fitness. 

Hosting both evenings is local celebrity Chef Joe Hurd. When Joe popped into Stable Ales at Melbourne Hall for a drink a couple of years ago, the stars aligned and a partnership began, with Joe now bringing incredible food to The Brewhouse customers. 

Lord Kerr says, “Joe has been a big supporter of what we have been doing with The Brewhouse and we’re thrilled he is going to host this summer BBQ weekend with Gennaro and Matt”.

Derbyshire’s Melbourne Hall is subtly establishing itself as one the East Midlands premier venues for summer entertainment. Eschewing the trend for sprawling festivals catering to thousands, Melbourne Hall is taking the boutique approach, under the new moniker - Live at Melbourne Hall. Influenced by Lord & Lady Ralph Kerr’s love of the arts, these intimate events will be held within its famed walled garden with a line-up that includes comedy, music, food and one or two famous faces from the world of entertainment.

Tickets for the Summer BBQ Series start at £26.95-£54.45 and are available here. I'll be going along to experience the event and snap some pictures so be sure to follow along and check back for a review. Or perhaps if this preview has whet your appetite - I'll see you there!
