Towcester Food Festival at Towcester Racecourse 10th & 11th June
Did you go to the Towcester Food Festival this year? How have I never been before?! Not often is our lovely town of Towcester host to such large scale events!
With the brief set; capturing "the story” as it unfolded over the weekend; I along with seriously thousands of other people travelled down the A5, parked up on site and made my way towards the array of stalls.
With blue in the sky and the aviators strategically placed on head (sunglasses are a tricky one for photographers) I toured the grounds capturing people enjoying the lovely weather, street food market, the real ale and cider bars, the musicians and of course the friendly busy stall holders. Oooh the Mayor was there too.
I don’t pretend to be the world’s greatest cook by any stretch, I think this has probably influenced my not going to the event previously. But it turns out you don’t have to be a religious "foodie” to buy a ticket to this event (£6 in advance); Having been there this year, if anything it’s a brilliant place, local to Towcester to simply bring the kids and enjoy the circus and bouncy castle, music, masterclasses for all ages, and sample for free some of the foods, sauces, drinks on offer. Plus I was genuinely surprised at how reasonable the price was for certain things if you did want to make a purchase ….”£2.50 a jar” type thing.
There is too many different stalls to mention, but those that spring to mind include…..
