13 Feb Northamptonshire’s Good Food and Drink Festival Again!
We’re Backing Northamptonshire’s Good Food and Drink Festival Again!
Following the success of last year’s inaugural Northamptonshire’s Good Food and Drink Festival, the date for this year’s festival has been announced for this summer and we are delighted to be involved again.
Not only have we designed the website and marketing literature, but we’ve also designed the social media graphics, promotional banner and event guide for the day.
The successful festival, sponsored by Kettering based Wilson Browne Solicitors, takes place on Sunday 14th June 2020 and will be bringing together local food producers once again offering a variety of produce and delicacies as well as providing them with an opportunity to display their passion for food and drink.
Over 40 exhibitors and 800 food enthusiasts attended last year’s event and the expectations are for this to rise this year following the success of last year’s festival. The fun filled day, which also included a wide range of entertainment for all the family to enjoy, is free to attend and gives food and drink lovers a chance to sample and purchase local produce made in Northamptonshire as well as the surrounding area whilst relaxing in the summer sunshine and beautiful gardens of the award winning Kettering Park Hotel & Spa.

Also present on the day were the Daniel Thwaites shire horses who welcomed the visiting public and they will be returning this year together with several well-known local producers including makers of fine bespoke chutneys and preserves, bread producers, and a local brewery. The event will include, Gluten Free, Dairy free and vegan suppliers.
The festival was the vision of the hotel’s General Manager Andrew Hollett and brought local events management business Polka Dot Events and our Marketing Manager and Kettering Business Network leader Simon Cox together to bring the festival to the hotel and helping to put local food producers on the Northamptonshire map.
Andrew said “I have always wanted to hold a food and drink festival at Kettering Park since becoming involved in the food and drink scene through my own passion for all things local and Northamptonshire especially. The quality and variety of producers is amazing, and many items are used on our menu’s.”
