Events form one of the mainstays of Ribble Valley Tourism, and one event in particular has grown significantly in size and impact. From humble beginnings, it now attracts a worldwide food audience. The event has just celebrated its 15th anniversary and the hotel where it is based its 30th anniversary. During the most recent event 27 chefs from across the world took part. With world class chefs and sommeliers preparing the best food and wine from local producers and growers, this unique festival is, of course, ‘Obsession’ based at Northcote.
