We’re also delighted to have been joined by Mooch who are already firm favourites in Northampton town centre amongst the county’s savvy gifters! Our most tech-savvy concession, IndigoZest, will be demonstrating their smart home technology, designed to enhance your home through connectivity and integration and, most recently, we have a dedicated interior design studio by Mills & Kinsella.
If you haven’t yet experienced our stunning new extension, then this is an event you can’t afford to miss! Under the gorgeous, industrial, saw-tooth roof, you’ll be cosy by the double sided wood burning fire and enjoying the twinkling fairy lights adorning hundreds of carefully selected Christmas decorations and gifts.

To prove that BBQing is a year-round affair, we’ll be putting several of our favourites to work! The Big Green Egg is the perfect grill for this time of year as it thrives when left to its own devices so you can leave it burning low and slow while you put up the Christmas lights and come back to a mouth-watering meal. The fabulous Shereen from Boxfood will be bringing the Egg to life with fiery fusion mixes, combining the best of Caribbean, Asian, and European influences.
On demonstration we will also have a Traeger wood pellet smoker. We will be smoking a one-of-a-kind chilli that the whole family will love! Our recipe features the tasty combo of ground chorizo and beef all melted together in the one pot wonder, great for a winter’s supper! Samples will be available for you to try… it just goes to show how versatile the Traeger smoker really is.
