An 18 Night Gastronomic Celebration

Northcote celebrated 18 years of the gastronomic event Obsession in 2018 by inviting 21 world class chefs with 17 Michelin stars between 18th January and 4th February 2018.

Obsession first took place in 2001 and was created by Nigel Haworth as a celebration of great food, wine and a meeting of friends, old and new. From that first event, its size has grown but the ethos is still very much the same, always looking to offer guests a completely memorable culinary experience, created by some of the world’s most innovative chefs.

Obsession Partners



We were delighted to have raised £32,000 throughout OBSESSION 17  with the generous assistance of Blackpool’s premier jewellers Leonard Dews and our partner hotels and restaurants for HOSPITALITY ACTION - the industry’s benevolent charity. For 2018 we're once again partnering with Hospitality Action and Leonard Dews and hope to raise further funds to continue to fund the work carried out by the charity, whether that be supporting people through illness or encouraging young people into the industry.
