Part of a planned music event in Northampton tomorrow will be moved to a different part of the town centre.

Local bands were due to play on the traditional bandstand, which was erected in the shopping street yesterday, during Saturday’s launch of the Love Northampton Summer Events programme.

But the plans has had to be altered this afternoon, organisers have said.

Northampton Music Festival tweeted: “Due to a problem with power supply on Abington Street we will be moving tomorrow’s planned music to the lovely NN Cafe courtyard.

“Music kicks off at 12 - we look forward to seeing you there!”

Organised by Northampton Borough Council in partnership with the Northampton music 365 project, Most Marvellous, Northampton Leisure Trust and the Northampton Town Centre BID, the Love Northampton Summer Events programme will kick off on Saturday July26 and will run until Saturday August 30.

There will be a variety of street acts, featuring acrobats and circus performers plus fairground rides and a ‘beach’ on the Market Square.
