A day of fun entertainment, displays and activities will be taking place on Northampton market on Saturday 20 May, as part of the national Love Your Local Market celebrations.

Between 10.30am and 3.30pm, families will be able to enjoy an array of entertainment on the day, including dancing by The Stereomen, juggling by the Magical Butterfly and quizzes posed by Sparky the Robot.

In addition, visitors will be able to get their face painted, view Army displays and vehicles as well as view the produce and products market stalls have to offer.

Northampton Market is holding one of 5000 events taking place across the country to help celebrate Love Your Local Market fortnight, a national campaign that aims to highlight the importance of markets in our communities.

Cllr Phil Larratt, the Deputy Leader of the Borough Council, said: “Northampton Market is a great asset to the town and we are looking forward to celebrating what it has to offer during Love Your Local Market fortnight.

“We hope that lots of people will come along to enjoy the entertainment and peruse the excellent fresh produce and products available to buy from stalls.”
