Althorp Food & Drink Festival 2019
Neighbouring Northamptonshire's finest food and drink event is back! Full of new fun additions to accompany the best of local.
The Althorp Food & Drink Festival is back and it’s going to be bigger, better and more brilliant than ever (yes I know we say this every year, but that’s because it is)! So grab your fellow foodies and head on over to Muddy Northant’s favourite annual food festival at the stunning grounds of Althorp Park on Saturday May 11 and Sunday 12 May. La-de-dah indeed! It’s an award-winning foodie paradise, with many fantastic producers from across Warwickshire. We’ve been a few times and it’s not one to miss, so grab yer diary and jot it down.
World-renowned chefs including Jean-Christophe Novelli and Ken Hom OBE, who are headlining the event, will be joined by over 100 diverse and inspiring food and drink stands, showstopping culinary events and experiences. There’s an exciting new addition for 2019 as you can now learn from the best with 90-minute masterclasses taught by the headlining chefs (definitely take advantage of this if you want to show off at your next dinner party)!
All the foodie stuff sounds great but if you’re one to head straight to the boozy stalls (ahem), then how does cocktail-making sound? Shake up your very own bev, chill out and enjoy some of Northants’ finest musical talents on the outdoor live stage. It’s a weekend full of things to do with falconry displays, book signings, and a new Animals of Althorp exhibition to keep the whole family well and truly entertained. This year’s Kids Corner features more activities than ever, with a 40ft big top tent, including circus skills workshops, kids cookery classes, arts and crafts and much more still to be announced – they’ll certainly be kept busy while you feel quite cultured sipping Pimms!
With the stunning site as a backdrop for all the fun, there’s no doubting you’ll fancy a nosy around. Tours of Althorp House and walks around the Park make the perfect accompaniment to a day at the Festival. From the best food and drink producers right up to the stately home itself, the festival really shows off what Northants has to offer.
Grab an Early Bird Day Ticket for £8.50 or an Early Bird Weekend Ticket for £15 before they run out; they include access to chef demonstrations (on a first-come-first-serve basis). And the kids? Well if they’re aged 12 and under then they get in free! What’s not to love! Althorp Food & Drink Festival
