At Delapré Abbey June 8 and 9 2024

Volunteer and be part of something great!

Become a festival maker

In the vein of Olympic ‘Gamesmakers’, volunteers will play a key role at Delapre Food Festival. As well as feeling good and finding new friends, volunteers get two free tickets to the festival and a food voucher.

Tom Findell, who gave up his weekends to volunteer at our sister event Towcester Food Festival, said: “I love it. I’m out in the fresh air doing something amazing. It’s great.”

Crispin Slee, founder of the festival, said: “We are enormously grateful to everyone who gives up their time to help. They will be going something really wonderful – helping to creating a fabulous new culture asset for Northampton.”



Volunteers need only give a few hours around the weekend of the event. They will be responsible for stewarding at the event, greeting, guiding and assisting visitors.

Please help if you can spare a few hours. The festival is a great event for Northampton and supports one of the town’s greatest historical assets. Potential volunteers can register their interest by emailing
