Street Food Traders at Box on The Docks

Street Food Traders

Box on the Docks is back with all new offerings. This autumn/winter, find a whole host of new street food options, new artwork and even a tepee in our winter village.

Winding through the award-winning gardens and now onto the iconic MediaCity piazza, the multi-award-nominated dining and arts concept is back. Shelter from the winter weather and cosy up in your own private pod. Enjoy frosty G&Ts or a warming mulled wine from the Box on the Docks bar in your own greenhouse or shed curated by Salford-based artists. This season look out for new Van Gogh influenced boxes, inspired by the multi-sensory Van Gogh Alive UK exhibition in MediaCity.

Feeling social? Pop into our new winter tepee, nestled amongst our pine and fir trees in the MediaCity gardens and warm up in this intimate new location. Look out for more announcements, events and food pop-ups over the season.
