Apply to hold an event

Supporting your application

Depending on the size and scale of your event, an application can take some time to process.

Large events may need input from other agencies, and Northampton Safety Advisory Group.

Abington Park bandstand

Abington Park bandstand is programmed with performances by NBC Events Team from April to September each year. It is not available for hire by the public, due to the large number of performances already hosted in that small area, and the settings.

The Events section can look to help groups to find other appropriate park locations for events – please apply using the online form.

Guidance for application timescales
