A Taste of Everything


The Northamptonshire Food Show @ Holdenby 2014

Saturday 30th August 2014 - Sunday 31st August 2014

Holdenby has become synonymous with food. This will be the eighth year for the Northamptonshire Food Show at Holdenby. An annual celebration of everything that is good to eat as well as an abundance of arts, crafts and gift stalls from which to sample and buy.

EAT. Many of the stalls will be selling take away food so you don’t need to worry about what to have for lunch!

DRINK. We are delighted that Warner Edwards will be at the show doing a talk each day and there will be many other stalls with wine, beer and soft drink tasting.

COOK. Alongside many cookery demonstations, we are happy to once again have Holdenby regular, Sophie Grigson doing demo’s.

HISTORY. Take a peek inside the house, which will be open both days 12-5pm.

Outside, there will also be a Living History displays from The Earl of Essex’s Regiment of Foote. Holdenby was once the prison of King Charles I and this is a unique opportunity to find out about food and living in the 17th century. There will also be drill and firing displays in front of Holdenby House.

GARDEN. Each day there will be tours of the Garden with Head Gardener Matt Hughes. 

FALCONRY. Icarus Falconry, based at Holdenby, will also be open to the public where you can see these magnificent birds of prey, and there will be displays on the lawn each day.
