Northampton In Bloom 2022

In Collaboration with James McInerney and the Poetry Project

Northampton Town Council and partners are pleased to introduce Northampton in Bloom 2022. In collaboration with the James McInerney of the Poetry Project, this years theme is focused on wellbeing within the community.

You may have already seen some of our beautiful floral containers and hanging baskets appearing in the town, but be on the look out for poetry quotes scattered on shop windows around the Town Centre and our planters surrounding the Market Square and Beckets Park.

Traditionally, Northampton in Bloom has covered mainly the town centre area. This year Northampton Town Council is pleased to have supported the spread of the project into some new areas, including Abington and Eastfield wards within the parish boundary. This years project features a Wellbeing Walk with poetry quotes that encourage reflection, dispersed around the picturesque surroundings of Abington Park.

Northampton in Bloom is a project that the town council are extremely committed to and our aim is to build and grow connections in all our wards in future years.

We are encouraging the community to get involved with photos of the town/ their own businesses or gardens in bloom by engaging on social media through the #northamptoninbloom handle.

If you are a member of a local business or community organisation, you can apply for one of our Bloom Start-Up Grants for up to £200 towards a sustainable planting initiative. Visit
