Here’s another date for your diary. The Love Northampton Food and Drink Festival funded by the town centre Business Improvement District, will take place on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 July.
The festival will be opened by William Sitwell, food writer, TV presenter and editor of Waitrose Kitchen magazine, a man who is passionate about supporting food and drink producers in his beloved county of Northamptonshire.
The courtyard area of the town’s Guildhall will be packed with local produce and culinary activities. Local chefs will be whipping up summer recipes, there will be free tastings and visitors will also be able to sample the finalists in the food and drink categories of this year’s Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards.
Local cafés, pubs and restaurants are joining in by promoting the best of Northamptonshire produce on their menus and offering special rewards and discounts to visitors to the event. Northampton Wine Shop, Mammas Handmade Pasta, Frog Island Brewery and The Seafood Café are just some of the local businesses taking part.
