Councillor Brandon Eldred, Northampton Borough Council’s cabinet member for community engagement, said: “Once again the Delapre Beer Festival attracted thousands of visitors to Delapre Abbey. It did not matter if people were in their wellies avoiding rain showers or wearing sunglasses and soaking up the sun, everyone had a great time enjoying the beers and entertainment.

“The event was a real success and promoted the best local brews and some great local bands. And on Saturday there was a brilliant atmosphere as the town came together to celebrate the Saints triumph at Twickenham.”
