The Northcote Obsession Food Festival
The UKs leading gastronomic event
Northcote’s Obsession celebrated its 20th anniversary of this hugely successful gastronomic event in 2020. This unique festival in the UK is known as one of the most prestigious, important and internationally-recognised gourmet festivals. Sadly, as the world changed beyond recognition in 2020 through to 2021, Obsession was unable to go ahead. We are delighted to confirm that it will return in 2022, when we will be ready to deliver another unique celebration of gastronomy, bigger than ever!
Tickets for Obsession22 will be released in October 2021, sign up to Northcote’s newsletter to be advised of the release date and how to book.
21st January to 6th February 2022
Obsession began and continues to be a celebration of the best of the culinary world. With chefs ranging from the UK’s best-loved household names and ground-breaking newcomers to some of the world’s best chefs. The festival has grown from year to year to become one of the most well-loved and respected food festivals. This annual occasion sees each chef showcase their creativity and innovative cuisine on consecutive evenings over 17 nights.
You may expect an event of this profile to be in London or a major city, so we are proud to host such an event here in Lancashir. Many guests take a foodie pilgrimage to Northcote to be part of what has become known as the Glastonbury of the culinary world. Over 17 days, the restaurant will serve close to a monumental 10,000 perfectly presented and crafted plates of food. Only with the full commitment of everyone at Northcote can such a feat be repeated night after night, but this is what Obsession is – an annual dine fining festival – that has become everyone’s obsession!
