Hog Roast Burnley
Burnley: the name itself sound truly Lancastrian, and indeed, this is one most Lancastrian towns you can find. Burnley was one of the kingpins of the industrial revolution, becoming one of the most important mill towns, not just in Britain but in the world. Unfortunately, Burnley’s mills heyday has passed but many hope for a new dawn for this proud town of over seventy thousand people. A new dawn seemed to be on the cards for the Burnley football team when, against all odds, it achieved promotion to the Premier League in 2009, though sadly the team could not maintain Premier League status and were relegated at the end of the season.
Just as Burnley has shown through bouncing back to the fop flight in football, you can always make a comeback. The same can be said of that old Medieval feast, hog roast. Hog roast seemed have to have all but disappeared from the menu at major events many years ago and seemed destined to be just an occasional visitor to the special occasion calendar, but it now seems that Hog roast has won itself a new legion of fans and this is helping it enjoy something of a hog roast renaissance in towns like Burnley and far beyond. Could this be the start of the hog roast Burnley fightback, just like the Clarets managed in the Premier League?
