Meanwhile artist Abi Sawyer will be inviting the young and the young at heart to get creative in her interactive arts and crafts workshops.

This is the second of three Summer Fun days jointly organised and funded by Northampton Town Centre Business Improvement District (BID), Northampton Borough Council and Starbucks, to celebrate the town centre’s creativity.

Jessica D’Aulerio, chair of Northampton town centre BID, said: “We’ve had a fabulous summer so far in Northampton town centre and are very excited to celebrate the bank holiday weekend with a day of family-friendly entertainment.

“There are some truly talented musicians lined up, and Abi Sawyer’s workshops will be the perfect way to keep kids entertained.
