Pop-up Partners are hosting an igloo dining experience in the Nene Valley

Lauren said: "We are inviting you to treat yourself and your loved ones to a magical dining experience beneath the beautiful skies of the Northamptonshire countryside.

"Nestled in the stunning grounds of Hawthorn Grove, amongst the leafy woodland, this is a special opportunity to experience first class food and celebrate a special occasion, or just have a long overdue catch-up with friends and family, all within your own private igloo pod.

Lauren has teamed-up with Richard Butler to diversify their wedding-related businesses - Lauren owns Only Doing it Once whilst Richard's Something Borrowed Event Hire is based in Wellingborough.

She added: "We’re really excited to be partnering with Hawthorn Grove, a recently established outdoor venue for weddings and events, especially with such an exciting and unique dining experience.

Diners will be eating in igloo pods

"You can choose from our delicious pre-set menus, all curated by our talented chefs at Gallarwood Catering, and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea in the spring sunshine or cosied up in your pod if the rain does make an appearance. We also have a wonderful dinner menu so that, as the sky darkens and the festoon lights start to glow, you can dine beneath the stars."

Pop Up Partners' dining experience takes place at Hawthorn Grove, Great Dodington from May 26 to June 1.

The partners are also returning to the University of Northampton's Waterside Campus to host a local food and drink fair on May 28 to May 31 with their pop-up food festival.

Wooden chalet-style huts and food vans on the Senate lawn will offer a wide selection of suppliers for hot takeaway food, sweet treats and foodie finds from 11am to 7pm.
