The Craft Beer Boys (both days)
Brad and Jonny are founders of the Craft Beer Channel, a Youtube channel with a huge global following dedicated to great beer and good food.
As well as our main stage at Northampton Food Festival, where our celebrity chefs will be demonstrating throughout the day, hosted by the inimitable Mark Lloyd, we also have
the Food Roadshow stage, where we have a further line-up of chefs for you to watch and learn from.
We also have live music from a number of local bands and artists, again playing throughout the day for your enjoyment on the designated music stage. This is situated in the middle of our piazza area, where you can relax, buy food from around the world, or from local producers around the corner, and maybe try some of the real ales from our Real Ale Tent, where we have a large variety from local breweries in the East Midlands area.
You may want to take advantage of our unique Fruit De Mer restaurant, where you can enjoy a huge and delicious seafood platter, fresh from the sea.
There is family entertainment, with workshops for all ages, the infamous Bushtucker Challenge, and for the young (and the young and heart) we also have the ever popular Pinxton Puppets, as well as fairground rides.
The huge food halls are just a part of our food festival – but it’s always good to go home with something, and with a try before you taste policy on a lot of the stands, you are sure to enjoy the shopping experience!
