Northampton Town Festival, The First of Many!

 Northampton Town Festival

The First of Many!




On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July 2016 thousands of people travelled from Northamptonshire and surrounding areas to The Racecourse for the first ever Northampton Town Festival – but most certainly not the last!


Created by Showtime Events Group, Northampton Town Festival was created to bring back together the local community, and remind everyone of what is great about our town.




Events of the day 


The Festival was a completely free event to attend, with free entertainment scheduled over the 2 days for everyone to enjoy, including camel racing, stunt shows, the Knights of Nottingham (Medieval Jousting), dog shows, fireworks, hot air balloons, food and drink stalls, many local trader stalls and more!


The biggest funfair to ever be on the Racecourse added more fun for everyone too!




So how much of a success was the event?


Over 40,000 people attended the event and Showtime Events Group are already on the case to create an even bigger and better festival for next year!


We are hoping to see more of the old favourite hot air balloons too, so watch this space for updates and news of next year’s events to come!



A few words from Showtime Events Group


Dave Bailey, a partner of Showtime Events Group says a few words on the event:


“We were so pleased to see the balloons brought back to the Racecourse and to bring Northampton it’s very first Northampton Town Festival. It was a happy moment when we saw the balloons flying across Northampton again and we were very pleased that the weather was kind enough to us on the Sunday to allow us to do this.


Being the first event, we think that the most important thing for us to do now is to review what people loved about the festival and also what we could improve on for next year to make sure that next year’s event is even bigger and better. We want to give the people what they want and this is our main focus for next year.


Thanks to everyone that supported us and came to the event. We look forward to seeing you next year!”
