British Pie Week 2020 - Wednesday Update

With British Pie Week already three days in, here's an update on what's going on in the world of pies in the best week of the year!


Pierate Birmingham Pie Night

Much like the last couple of years, it seemed rude not to celebrate British Pie Week without going to a local pie shop with friends of the blog! Therefore Pierateer Rob organised a trip to the local Pieminister shop in central Birmingham. He once again enjoyed a very nice Moolin Rouge Steak, Bacon and Red Wine pie, so look out for the review of that later this week! That will be the 20th Pieminister pie we review, and in the meantime you can find the other 19 Pieminister pie reviews!

British Pie Awards

A few years ago the British Pie Awards moved their awards to this week, to coincide with British Pie Week, and this year celebrate their 12th year! While we won't be there in person this year, judging happens in Melton Mowbray today and we look forward to hearing the results this Friday!

British Pie Week 2020 is from 2nd-8th March!
Pie-motions this Pie Week

As it's British Pie Week, a number of pie shops and pie companies are doing special pie-motions to give you even more reason to eat pie this week (as if you really needed it!) Here are some of our favourites:
  • Pieminister are offering free scratchcards when you order pie in their shops or order their pies online this pie week, which include pie-rizes such as free pies or money off your next Pieminister meal!
  • Turner's Pies - who won the British Pie Awards just a few years ago in 2018 with their Steak and Ale pies - are donating money to Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice from the sale of their British Pie Week Steak and Mature Cheddar pie and Champion Pie Packs. Place your orders at www.turnerspies.co.uk
  • Brockleby's are offering 10% off their online pies if you quote "BRITISHPIEWEEK" at the checkout on www.brocklebys.co.uk
  • MyPie London - our number 1 pie maker out of over 600 - is out and about across London this week, with this being one of owner Chris' busiest weeks of the year!! If you are London way, check out the diary on the MyPie Website!

If you’re a pie maker or pie seller and have any special promotions for British Pie Week, get in touch with us and we can celebrate your British Pie Week offers right here! Either send us an email to pierateship@yahoo.co.uk or tweet us @pierateers to let us promote your pie week plans!

PIE-LIGHTS OF PAST BRITISH PIE WEEKS

During British Pie Week 2014 we Pierateers consumed a quite incredible 55 pies and you can see the breakdown right here! There were so many highlights that we had to do a whole day-by-day account of it, including a Python pie, a day of just eating apple pie and Pierateer SJL eating 21 pies - one for every meal of British Pie Week.

In fact, Pierateer SJL didn't just eat a pie for every meal but he proved that you can eat pie and lose weight!!! Yes, we can hardly believe it either!

In 2015 we raised the bar even higher by consuming a whopping 71 pies between 2 Pierateers! This included a Pieathon (seeing how long we could just eat pies for) and Rob eating pie for 67% of his diet that week!
