‘Discover Northampton Live’ has been organised by Northampton Town Centre BID to encourage more visitors into the town centre and celebrate the diverse areas that make it special. ‘Discover Northampton Live’ will take place on the second Saturday of every month until October, and will focus on celebrating local talent.

Jessica D’Aulerio, Chair of Northampton Town Centre BID, said: “We had a great reaction to our first ‘Discover Northampton Live’ day in March, and are delighted to be welcoming a whole new line-up to the town centre this month. These performers include some old favourites whom visitors to Northampton have enjoyed in the past, and we’re thrilled to be welcoming them back.”
