Richard Clinton, Chief Executive of Delapré Abbey Preservation Trust, said: “We’re delighted to host The Big Lunch here at the Abbey, bringing together communities and partners for a truly memorable celebration.”

Audiences will also be entertained by The Masque Theatre and Living History re-enactment group who are set to give performances in the gardens of the abbey. There will also be a silent disco.

Vintage Guru will be running a Craft Makers Market and there will be a variety of food and drink stalls on site, along with the award-winning Orangery Café, for those who do not want to bring their own picnic.

Tickets are available from the Royal & Derngate. Entry is free but by ticket only.

More information about the Big Lunch will be shared on social media @WestNorthants and @DelapreAbbey over the coming weeks.

A countywide pageant is also set to parade through the streets of Northampton Town Centre on Saturday, 4 June at 11am, with representatives from the military, emergency services, youth and community groups.
