Visiting the Festival

Making the most of
your experience

The Northampton Winter Food Festival takes place at The County Cricket Ground in Northampton, the home of the Northamptonshire County Cricket Club. We will be taking over all of the indoor space - including the massive Lynn Wilson Centre - and also putting a marquee on the car park so you will be warm and dry as you browse the stalls.

But it wouldn't feel wintry without some fresh air so there is an open-air street food market and hot drink stalls selling artisan coffee, boozy hot chocolate and hot toddies around the boundary edge.

There will be over 80 food, drink and gift stalls for you to browse; chef demos; wine free wine and gin tasting sessions; foodie talks; hot street food and mulled cider and wine to warm your cockles.


The festival will take place on Saturday November 10 and Sunday November 11 in 2018.


10am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
