The home of the Steelbacks winning cricket team will host Northampton’s first-ever winter food festival.

Rather than googlies, they will be serving up a host of artisan food and drink, and dishes from around the world in a street food market.

Northampton Winter Food Festival is a celebration of artisan produce with more than 70 stalls, chef demos, tasting workshops and food talks.

It is being launched by the team behind Towcester Food Festival, which has grown to become one of the biggest in the country in just three years.

The event will take place under cover at The County Ground and street food traders will pitch their stalls on the boundary edge.

Organiser Crispin Slee said: “We’re really excited to be launching a new food festival in Northampton.

“It’s a great venue and nearly everything will be indoors and under cover. There’ll be tasting workshops and lots of free foodie talks.”

Northampton Winter Food Festival takes place at The County Ground in Abington Avenue on November 12 and 13.

There will be free parking in Abington Park. Adult tickets are £6 in advance of £8 on the day. Children over ten years are £3.
