Voting open for 10th Curry Capital of Britain

This October, 20 cities will once again go head to head to compete for the title of Curry Capital of Britain.

Voting has already begun for this, the tenth such event, which is a partnership between the curry loving public, restaurants and the UK’s city councils.

Organiser Peter Grove said "Last year votes flooded in via the website, via local newspapers or via Council websites. Over 250,000 votes showed the support for curry and at one stage voters even crashed the voting computers. The event even trended third in the world on Twitter led by pop star Bruno Mars."

Bradford the 2011 winner snatched the title from Glasgow. However this year there are more challengers than ever with several of the cities determined to regain the title they once held.  For details check the nationalcurryweek.co.uk website for more info.

The competition is part of National Curry Week 2012, running October 8-14. Now in its 15th year, National Curry Week exists to promote the cuisine and to recognise the contribution of ethnic communities across Britain, while at the same time raising money for the Curry Tree Charitable Fund.

The competing cities are London East, London North, London South, London West, London Central, Glasgow, Manchester, Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Bradford, Leicester, Newcastle, Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Sheffield, Nottingham, Northampton and Luton.
