Nottingham Street Food Club in Victoria Centre closes down

The owners say rising energy costs make the venue unsustainable.

The business announced in a statement:

‘After 5 years of Street Food Club at the Victoria Centre, we have made the decision not to renew our lease and say goodbye to this physical site.

‘Over the years we have had the enormous pleasure of working with many different independent food businesses, helping them grow and contributing to a better circular economy in our great city. An achievement we are immensely proud of.

‘We have seen and experienced the impact the last two years have had on the hospitality industry and are very grateful for the support everyone has given, helping us to survive these testing times.

‘The rising costs across so many elements means it is no longer sustainable to continue at this location.

‘This past year everyone has seen a sizable increase in energy bills and ours quadrupled.

‘Unlike most businesses, we have had to power four kitchens and we wouldn’t be sticking to our values if we had passed these costs straight onto the independent food traders we work with.

‘We’re proud that our decision to absorb this increase has given these independent businesses the best opportunity to continue to grow.

‘We would like to thank all the staff and traders who were a part of our Victoria Centre chapter.

‘Special thanks to Jack from FHP for making it happen and Victoria Centre for giving us the opportunity.

‘We hope you have as many great memories of this chapter as we do.’
