Umbrella Fair Festival

20th & 21st August 2016 The Racecourse, Northampton

The first ever festival on The Racecourse took place in 1652 when local man Edward De Courcy performed popular madrigals of the day accompanied by his sister, Anne, on a pair of pewter spoons. Attendance was poor due to the fact that Facebook hadn't been invented so no one knew about it. Nonetheless, it was the start of a long history of live music performance in Northampton.

This tradition continues today with the Umbrella Fair Festival - 2 days of music, poetry, dance, theatre and much more in the beautiful setting of The Racecourse park.
