Every year Northampton comes alive with many events and activities right across the board - from festivals, from drama to dancing, organised not just by Northampton Borough Council but also by the staggering variety of artistic, cultural and ethnic organisations, both professional and amateur, who stage so many events for the benefit of us all.
