On Saturday 17 December, we have teamed up with V and B on St Giles Square to host a festive sing-along round the Christmas tree. From 11am there will be performances from carol singers and local musicians – the perfect backdrop to your Christmas shopping on the last Saturday before the big day.
The Christmas Bandstand will also be in full swing to accompany West Northants Council's Frost Fair on Sunday 4 December from 1130 till 1530. Featuring performances from Hannah Faulkner, Northampton Concert Band and Sax's Cool Band.
Keep your eyes peeled for Santa's mischievous elves! 'Elves with Altitude', Vince Pie and Russell Sprout are on a very special mission - to spread the gift of laughter with their 'Rudolph' upgrade biplanes (Rudolph the red-nosed plane-deer!) Checking whether you've been naughty or nice (or borderline!), the magical 'Good-o-Meter' Elves will be joining in the festivities too ticking off their list for Santa. Plus, our Christmas Balloon Modelling Elves on Sat 3rd Dec!
These cheeky little chappies will have you laughing your socks off with lots of festive fun & frolics.
