Get Directions

Northampton is the fastest growing town in the UK and has a fitting position as being in the heart of England. The town’s history dates back to the 10th century. Becket’s Park, in particular, was named after Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury during the reign of King Henry 11. The park is a traditional park along the bank of the River Nene​ and forms a green gateway to the centre of Northampton. Popular with workers and families it’s a well loved, well cared for park. Come along and enjoy chilling out with a glass of Prosecco.

Event Update: Prosecco in the Park, Abingdon – Postponed until Friday 26th July to Sunday 28th July (next weekend!) With all national weather forecasts predicting lightning and rain-storms throughout Friday & Saturday of this week, for safety reasons we have been forced to postpone the event due to be staged at Rye Farm Meadow, Abingdon for seven days and will now be staged on 26th, 27th & 28th July. “Naturally any postponement isn’t ideal and whilst we realise that weather forecasts can be unpredictable, the predicted lightning storms are enough for us to have to make this very difficult decision to postpone the event.  Safety of our growing audience is always our first priority” explains Event Organiser and local Abingdon resident, Matt Bates. “Our event last year was such a success and with a much larger screen, live content and additional bars, food offerings and activities for young families, we really want to make sure that we stage an event that Abingdon are proud of – and we can only hope that next weekend is as hot and sunny as being predicted!
