Nasty Northampton exhibition

Until Saturday 15 September
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday from 12-5pm

An exhibition for all the family that looks at the hysterical and hideous histories of northampton, from the exploits of Francis Tresham in the Gunpowder Plot and his eventual fate as a severed head at Northampton Castle to the secret of what leveller Captain Pouch had in his pocket. Find out why Northampton started to make shoes and about the crime of the Culworth Gang, a notorious gang of robbers in the 18th century. With lots of things to see and do, the exhibition brings Northampton's odd history to life.
