Let Hometown storytelling events open your eyes to hidden Northampton…

Chief Executive Martin Sutherland
Artistic Director Laurie Sansom

Patron The Rt Hon Earl Spencer

We Are Pathmakers has been performed as part of the Maps and Dreams season 
of performance storytelling
at The Barbican. It has also been shown closer to home as part of the Shoe Town Festival at the
Northampton Shoe Museum and Art Gallery.

Town, My Town is a guided walk that encourages the audience to see Northampton
as they’ve never seen it before: to be a tourist in your own town. 
Beyond the surface of the familiar
and the worn-out pathways, Jo Blake brings to life the forgotten fragments;
the half-remembered tales
and histories of characters and events that are the fabric of the town. 
This guided walk is sure to be
a popular event, and will set off 11am and 3pm on Saturday 26 and
Sunday 27 June, and at the
same times the following weekend, Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 July.

Taking place on Saturday 10 July at 8pm, On Common Ground is an evening of story, music,
poetry and song in which Chris Wood, Hugh Lupton and Big Sky put their ears to the ground
and tell the story of John Clare. Hugh is a master wordsmith, Chris is a leading folk musician
of his generation, and together they weave a beguiling magic, along with Norwich's celebrated
community choir Big Sky.

Tickets for each of these events are £7.50 in advance and £8.50 on the door.
To book call the Box Office on 01604 624811 or visit

Please note that
On Common Ground is not suitable for under 12s.
