Towcester is launching its first food festival on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 June, where visitors can tuck into local, artisan-produced food and drink.
Over the weekend, food lovers can browse 70 stalls, watch chef demonstrations, enjoy food workshops and street food. The festival will be held at Towcester racecourse, with fringe events in the town, including a real ale trail.
The team behind the festival are Kevin Ackerman, chief executive of Towcester Racecourse, festival chief executive Crispin Slee, who launched the town’s first real cider festival in 2012 and Beth Heath. Beth launched the first Shrewsbury Food Festival last year and is also operations director for Ludlow Food Festival.
Tickets are £5 for adults, there is no charge for kids and parking is free.
