Don't forget that you can find the ghost of Lady Wantage hiding at the museum too as part of the Ghosts of Northampton Past trail.

Free fireworks display to return to Northampton Racecourse

The Borough Council's popular, free fireworks display is returning to the Racecourse on Saturday, 4 November.

The fireworks event will open in the afternoon, with visitors able to enjoy fairground rides and food stalls from 2pm. Heart FM will be onsite from 5pm, to get the entertainment started.

This year, for the first time, people attending the event will experience a fantastic LED glow and fire show at 5.45pm, with live music from Pure Genius. The spectacular fireworks display will follow from 7pm and the event will close at 8pm. More »

With thousands of spectators expected to attend the display, the Council is reminding people that parking is not available on site. A limited number of parking spaces will be available at the University of Northampton's Avenue Campus. Spaces will be provided in car park 2 only, between 4pm and 9pm. In addition, multi-storey car parks close-by, such as St Michaels, St Johns and the Mayorhold, provide a free weekend parking offer to anyone who wants to park in the town centre and walk to the Racecourse.

The Council advises that there will be some disruption to roads surrounding the park, including Kettering Road, East Park Parade, Kingsley Park Road and St Georges Avenue, from 2pm as people make their way to and from the Racecourse.

In addition, there will be footpath closures from St Georges Avenue and Trinity Avenue across the park to the Kettering Road, whilst the fireworks display is set up.

Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, Cllr Anna King said: "Our free firework display is always really popular and this year we are excited to add the new LED glow and fire show to the event.

"We look forward to welcoming the hundreds of families who come to enjoy the event, as well as the offerings from the restaurants and cafes in and around the town centre. We do ask though, that people plan their travel and where possible, to park in the town centre and walk to the event from there."
