We are Northampton

Enter our competition

Northampton Museum and Art Gallery is currently undergoing a major redevelopment and the museum team has been busy developing an exciting programme of exhibitions, events and activities.

As part of the opening exhibition, We Are Northampton, international photographer Paul O’Leary will create a series of 24 photographic portraits that celebrate the wealth of characters and diversity of people who live in Northampton.

The museum team developing the exhibition has already selected 20 people to take part and is now looking for four individuals, families or groups of friends to complete the line-up.

  1. To be in with a chance of being selected you must live in Northampton. This includes people who have lived in Northampton all their lives, moved here recently or are here only temporarily.
