Upcoming Events

The meat industry plays host to many different events throughout the year. Some of these events are aimed at the butchers and producers themselves, whereas others encourage customers to join in and get involved!

Here you can find out what's going on and when, what we at Nicholson's are doing to take part and how you can get involved.

British Sausage Week 2011 (31 Oct - 06 Nov)

Beating the drum for the British banger!

Nicholson's will be joining in with all fun and hope to raise some money for charity along the way.

Our chosen charity for this year is Help Harry Help Others. This is our tribute to Harry Moseley, a brave little boy who died recently aged just 11. Harry died from in inoperable brain tumor, but spent his last months raising money for Cancer Research. More information about Harry and his charity can be found on the charity's official website; www.helpharryhelpothers.com.

So what's going on......

We have put together two limited edition sausages especially for this event. Our Blackcurrant Delight Sausage (pork with blackcurrants) and our Legendary Lancastrian Sausage (pork with black pudding and apple) both won Gold Awards at this Year's Britian's Legendary Bangers Competition. These sausages are available to buy during British Sausage Week only!

All customers (online and in-store) who purchase at least 500g of sausage during British Sausage Week will be entered into our prize draw. The lucky winner will receive a meat hamper on us!

Our new Toad in the Hole Kits will be available to buy from British Sausage Week onwards. When you purchase at least eight sausages (of any kind, although we recommend Cumberland or plain pork for this job), for an extra £0.75p you have the option to purchase one of our Toad in the Hole Kits. This kit contains the correct amount of seasoned flour and cooking instructions to create the perfect toad in the hole. All you need to do is add the milk and eggs! We even provide the tray to cook it all in, so there's no washing up!!

The Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards 2011 (16 Nov)

"The Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards are renowned as the premier event for the UK butchery sector. They recognise excellence in craft butchery and winners enter an exclusive group representing the crème de la crème of British butchery".

Taken from Meat Info.co.uk.

The awards ceremony will take place at the Landmark Hotel in London. Butchers from around the country will find out if they have what it takes to be crowned 'Butcher of the Year' for their region.

The regional champions will then battle it out to become 'Britian's Top Shop'.

We are quite excited about this event. Take a look why!
