Hosting over 100 artisan food and drinks stalls, the Towcester Food Festival attracted 8,000 visitors to the town last year.

The two-day festival, which takes place in June, is supported by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC).

Crispin Slee, the festival’s founder, said: “We’re very excited to build on last year’s success, which really put Towcester on the foodie map.

“We have lots going on this year, with more than 100 stalls serving up flavours from all around the world. There’ll also be a free children’s circus, pony rides and lots of other fun food activities and live entertainment. There really is something for everyone.”

Councillor Stephen Clarke, portfolio holder for economic development and regeneration on SNC, said: “I am thrilled to see the festival return to Towcester for its third year.

“As a district, we are privileged to have a wonderful choice of businesses delivering top quality products – it’s wonderful to see Crispin supporting and promoting all that is great about our local food with visitors from the district and further afield.”

Towcester Food Festival takes place at Towcester Racecourse on Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12.
