A Christmas Story

Jump into the world of augmented reality with 'A Christmas Story' trail.

Explore Northampton celebrates its 1st anniversary with a new Christmas experience, launching on the 28th November at the Frost Fair. Fun for the whole family, you can follow the trail to find a life-sized Father Christmas in 10 locations around the Town Centre, to unlock each part of an original Northampton Christmas tale.


Take pictures of you and your family and share them with us using the hashtag #ChristmasStoryNN for the chance to win some prizes.

Perfect to keep the children entertained whilst you do your Christmas shopping on one of our Christmas Saturdays, running from the 4th, 11th, 18th December, from 11am. Get into the spirit of the holidays with live seasonal entertainment on the main stage of Northampton's Market Square, every Saturday in the run up to Christmas with roaming street acts throughout the day.

No Christmas is complete without a visit to Father Christmas, in partnership with the BID, Northampton Town Council is delighted to be bringing Santa's Grotto to the Grosvenor Centre, for children up to 10 years old. Pre-booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. All money from this event will be donated to the Mayors Fund. There will be a £1 charge to secure the booking per family, using PayPal. Each child will receive a gift.
