The Northampton Town Festival 2017

1st-2nd of July 2017, The Racecourse, Northampton

Celebrating everything that makes Northampton Town great!

The Northampton community come from all industries and walks of life, but we have one thing in common… we are the heart of Northampton! The Northampton Town Festival is an event created for the local community and beyond, with the intention of bringing people together and celebrating all that makes our town great!

Whether you are one of our local residents & families, a hard working local trader, a member of a local community group, part of our thriving entertainment scene or live outside of Northampton and are looking to attend an awesome event that exhibits REAL community spirit… this event is not to be missed. The Northampton Town Festival brings our community together whilst combining all that was great about the iconic Old Northampton Town Show and The Balloon Festival in one fun filled weekend for the whole family.

The event is FREE to attend and will take place across 2 large arenas on the Racecourse – a venue large enough to accommodate the large crowds that the festival will attract. There will be an estimated 40,000- 60,000 attending throughout the weekend. If you would like to participate in performing, sponsoring or exhibiting at this event… get in touch!

I'm extremely pleased to announce that I will be performing at the Northampton Town Festival at The Racecourse on Sunday 2nd July at 13:00. I wasn't expecting to be able to play this year, so I'm incredibly grateful that I can, so lets all make it worth while and come along. Last year was fantastic so lets try and go one better this year and get as many people there as possible! Thanks for the support as always x
