Fire Masters brings more sizzle to the 24th National BBQ week

BLAZE has teamed up with 24th National BBQ Week (25-31 May) to encourage the nation to join together and donate for charity, in a BBQ-ing charity event, BARBI FOR BRITAIN.

To bring even more sizzle to National BBQ Week the and help the nation get fired up in lockdown, BLAZE is raising the steaks with the exclusive UK premiere of the hugely popular cooking competition series Fire Masters BBQ Wars.


National BBQ Week, one of the year’s most loved celebration dates, is back for its 24th year with a change in focus, launching BARBI for BRITAIN to raise much-needed funds for our pandemic heroes.

Launching on the Spring Bank Holiday, National BBQ Week will run until 31st May, starting with BARBI for BRITAIN on Monday 25th May 2020.

This year the Week which encourages Better BBQing & Gastro Grilling each year is putting its weight into supporting, saluting and raising funds for the NHS, Care Homes, Frontline & Supermarket Staff (the unsung heroes) working so hard for all our benefit during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National BBQ Week team is encouraging families, couples, and housemates across the country to BARBI for BRITAIN by involving their whole household and hosting a BBQ from their own garden.
