People from across North Northamptonshire, and further afield, are invited to celebrate the rich heritage, wildlife and culture of the Nene Valley as the annual Nene Valley Festival returns this September.

From Saturday 10 - Sunday 18 September, as with previous years, the festival will offer a variety of activities for the whole family and with funding from Heritage Lottery, via Nenescape, this year’s Nene Valley Festival will be bigger and better than ever.

Now in its 9th year, the Festival will feature events at key locations across the Nene Valley from Northampton to Peterborough and a wide range of activities for all ages.

We are delighted to be celebrating the wonderful Nene Valley once again.

Each year, we aim to better the previous year and hope the 2022 celebration will be no exception. This year’s event will offer a wide range of events which will highlight all the brilliant attractions, wildlife and heritage along the Nene Valley.

More details will follow in the coming weeks and months, so do keep an eye on the Destination Nene Valley channels.
Cllr Helen Howell, Deputy Leader of the council and Executive Member for Sport, Culture, Leisure and Tourism
The Nene Valley Festival continues to go from strength to strength and I am sure this year will be the best yet. The last couple of years have been particularly difficult for the tourism industry and it is great that the Nene Valley Festival is back for 2022 to showcase the local tourist attractions we have nearby.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the council

The annual festival is being organised through the Destination Nene Valley project, which works with local tourism partners, and the Nenescape Landscape partnership, to promote the Nene Valley as a competitive, sustainable destination offering wildlife and heritage to local, national and international audiences.
