Althorp Hall Food & Drink Festival

The Vino Van Events Ltd was excited to be part of this year’s Althorp Food and Drink Festival, a two day event that features some of Northamptonshire’s finest food and drink producers and suppliers.

The event takes place every year in the grounds of Grade 1 Listed Althorp House, one of the country’s most impressive stately homes, it spills out into the stables and enormous deer park too, so there was plenty of room for roaming amongst the stalls, while eating and drinking some of the county’s best produce. Talks, demonstrations and exhibitions made the event all the more interesting.

Althorp Hall was of course Princess Diana’s childhood home and now houses a collection of Mario Testino iconic portraits of the princess. Also on exhibition is Walking in her Shoes, a showcase of 20 inspirational young people who have been awarded The Diana Award for their positive impact on society and others. It felt very special to be at Althorp Hall so close to the royal wedding of her son Harry to Meghan.

There was plenty of history to be soaked up at Althorp but this occasion was a food and drink extravaganza to get totally immersed in.  It was the first time that we’d added Skinny Prosecco to the menu and it was a big hit; as a low calorie prosecco, it’s definitely caught the interest of lovers of fizz.

It was fabulous to see some of the traders, such as Real Belgium Fries, Jelley’s Vodka and Farmer Lou who joined us at Foodies Night Market or who we’ll be working with in the future.  It’s one of the pleasures of attending local events and meeting people.

There were a dizzying array of exhibitors, far too many to list here! However, if you’re ever in need of halloumi fries, and frankly we’re struggling to think of time that we’re not in need of halloumi fries, then you have to check out My Meze BBQ.

See you at next year’s event?  We hope so.
