The Market Walk, Northampton town centre

On Saturday, March 12, visitors to the town centre can take part in an impromptu tap dancing workshop, try their hand at Brazilian Capoeira or practice their very best pirate voice.

Delightfully eclectic street entertainment will be lighting up both Abington Street and the Market Walk Shopping Centre, with family-friendly performances from 11am to 3pm.

‘Discover Northampton Live’ has been planned by Northampton Town Centre BID to encourage more visitors into the town centre and celebrate the diverse areas that make it special. This is just the first in a whole series of street entertainment days; they will take place on the second Saturday of every month from March to October. Further line-ups are yet to be announced but are sure to make the most of local creative talent.

Jessica D’Aulerio, chair of Northampton Town Centre BID, said: “The different parts of Northampton town centre have real individual character. We’ve organised the ‘Discover Northampton Live’ days to celebrate this individuality, to help visitors explore new areas and new businesses throughout the town centre, and of course, to celebrate our great cultural and creative offering.

“We’re very excited to be bringing such a diverse selection of performers to the town centre and hope all visitors, young and old, will enjoy watching and even taking part.”
