Jean-Christophe Novelli and Ken Hom OBE to headline Althorp Food & Drink Festival 2019

The award-winning Althorp Food and Drink Festival returns on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May 2019, with over 100 diverse and inspiring food and drink stands, as well as show-stopping culinary events and experiences. World-renowned chefs including Jean-Christophe Novelli and Ken Hom will be leading a number of enticing demonstrations over the weekend, all included in the standard ticket price. As an exciting new addition for 2019, guests can now also gain a unique opportunity to learn from the best with 90-minute cooking classes taught by our headlining chefs.

Alongside the numerous shopping and tasting opportunities, visitors can enjoy an array of entertaining performances and activities, all set against the backdrop of Althorp’s stunning grounds. The Festival’s new, outdoor live music stage will feature some of Northamptonshire’s finest musical talents, while falconry displays, cocktail-making classes, book signings, and a new Animals of Althorp exhibition are sure to keep the whole family well and truly entertained. Tours of Althorp House and walks around Althorp Park also make the perfect accompaniment to a day at the Festival.

This year’s Kids Corner now features even more activities than ever, with a 40ft big top tent, incorporating circus skills workshops, kids cookery classes, arts and crafts and much more still to be announced.
