Music is in the air today, despite the clouds, as the third and final day of the Northampton Musical Festival takes over key town venues.

A combination of some of the county’s best up-and-coming artists, as well as wider known bands, of all genres will be performing on stages around the town centre all day.

Venues include All Saints Church, NN Cafe, Abington Strret, BBC Introducing in George Row, The Victoria Inn pub, a classical stage in Guildhall Road, a jazz stage in Guildhall Courtyard, a metal stage at The King Billy pub, a university stage at the Department of Liquor & Social Affairs and the main stage in Market Square.

Nuovo restaurant in Abington Street will be holding open mic sessions throughout the day, films for all ages will be screened at the Errol Flynn filmhouse and the Charles Bradlaugh pub in Upper Mounts will be hosting the ‘official’ after show party.

The free event, now in its 8th year, is open to everyone and is organised by Northampton Music 365 with support from Northampton Borough Council and Northampton Town Centre BID.

This year’s festival, which began on Friday, has 80 acts. Some of the highlights, due to perform today, include Ginger Pig, Lennoxx, The2Tones and the Northampton Male Voice Choir.
