Northamptonshire ACRE – Community Festival
Northamptonshire ACRE is opening its grounds for a community festival this September.
The Hunsbury Hill Centre is a Grade II listed farmstead on 13 acres of land and has been owned by local charity Northamptonshire ACRE since 1977. The site is home to the Hunsbury Hill Farm, which has a long and rich history with links to nearby Delapré Abbey. The farm buildings date from 1770 and were built by Edward Bouverie.
As part of an ambitious project to open up the site for the local community, Northamptonshire ACRE is holding a community festival to celebrate and share the site’s history and the plans for the future. The High Barn and farmhouse will be open all day for visitors to explore. There will be an opportunity to find out more about the first stage of the project, which includes a community orchard and allotment plots.
The Community Festival is being held on Sunday 5th September 2021 from 12 to 4pm, entry to the event is FREE and features live music and dancing, cooking demonstrations (with local celebrity chef Carmela’s Kitchen), local stall holders, a pop up Pub run by Phipps Brewery, children’s activities and even alpacas! Food and drink will be available to purchase. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
