With less than a month to go, the Tripe Marketing Board has called on tripe lovers across the globe to join together on Friday 24 October 2014 to celebrate tripe on World Tripe Day 2014.
World Tripe Day was inaugurated at a special ceremony in the House of Commons last year, when tripe lovers, chefs and a host of minor celebrities gathered to launch the international observance day.
Speaking at a press conference in Preston yesterday afternoon, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "Many supposedly more popular foodstuffs have long had their own 'world day'. Now that tripe has one, it is important that we celebrate it in style!"
Sir Norman said he hoped tripe lovers would let the TMB know what they would be doing to mark the day: "We hope people might want to write tripe songs, make models made from tripe and even read one of our tripe books. But mostly, we're just hoping they'll buy more tripe".
Local celebrations can be notified to the TMB's communications office, which will be pleased to publicise them further.
