Sportfest took place on the New Street Recreation Ground on Saturday 15 June, giving visitors a chance to find out more about the many sports clubs and activities on offer in Daventry District

There was a sports village giving people the chance to chat to representatives from different clubs and organisations representing a range of sports.

Danny Butler’s Extreme Mountain Bike Show wowed the crowds with some spectacular stunts and tricks, and people could try out a range of crazy bikes or use pedal power to run a Scalextric set, operate a sound system and even blend delicious smoothies.

There was a cycling hub, free bike checks, an exhibition area for demonstrations, information on health and wellbeing and an entertainment zone.

The event was organised by Daventry District Council and Everyone Active in partnership with Northamptonshire Highways, Cycle Northants and Daventry Cycling Club.
