As you wander through stunning courtyards, enjoy mouthwatering treats, a comedic fire performance and the sounds from the Northampton Philharmonic Choir.

Early evening entertainment sets the atmosphere for a spectacular performance created by award winning, METRO-BOULOT-DODO. The performance retells the story of the gunpowder plot and its many connections to both Boughton House and Northamptonshire.
