Grocery foods and drink together with a selection of International Street Foods, music stage, dining area and a wide selection of ales, ciders, craft lagers, spirits and fizz combine in this tasty offering next to the river Welland.

This free to enter event is held on the Meadows close to the town centre and all public transport stops including the train station, so getting to and from the venue couldn’t be easier.  Stamford itself offers a wealth of independent shops, so come to the festival and stay for the day to enjoy the gems within one of England’s most picturesque towns. 

Children’s entertainment, rides and slides add to the relaxed atmosphere and with the Stamford Music Festival running concurrently throughout the Saturday, you might just decide to make a weekend of it.

Stamford is a town on the River Welland in Lincolnshire, England, 92 miles (148 km) north of London on the A1. The population at the 2001 census was 21,800 including the adjacent parish of St Martin’s Without. The town has 17th and 18th-century stone buildings, older timber-framed buildings and five medieval parish churches and In 2013, Stamford was rated the best place to live by the Sunday Times.

For over 600 years Stamford was the site of the Stamford Bull Run festival, held annually on 13 November until 1839. According to local tradition, the custom was started by William de Warenne, 5th Earl of Surrey, after he saw two bulls fighting in the meadow beneath his castle viewpoint. Some butchers came to part the combatants and one of the bulls ran into the town. The earl mounted his horse and rode after the animal; he enjoyed the sport so much that he gave the meadow in which the fight began to the butchers of Stamford on condition that they should provide a bull, to be run in the town every 13 November, for ever after.
