Northampton Museums & Art Gallery September 2019-January 2020 What's On guide

As always, we have something for everyone in our latest season of events, from our ever-popular Over 60s talks to a study day on Eleanor of Castile and the Northampton Cross, cookery classes and food fairs, and holiday workshops for children.

Death on Two Legs

We have an exciting exhibition of beautifully crafted designs in leaves opening at Abington Park Museum.

Death on Two Legs features the work of Northampton artist Aasen Stephenson who has been creating work using traditional paper cutting techniques for many years and first started experimenting with Abington Park's fallen sycamore leaves in 2012.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 21 September until Sunday 17 November. Free admission.

A Festive Evening of Gin

If you missed out on getting tickets for our last sold out gin evening, get booked up for A Festive Evening of Gin on Saturday 9 November.

This two-hour event will be hosted by Quentin Neville of Phipps Brewery and will include seasonal and Christmas gins – tastings, sampling and pairings!

£30 per person for over 18s only.

October half term

Children can design and create a tambourine or decorate a maraca in our musical craft workshop during October half term.

Following their sell-out success in February our veggie sushi for children workshops are also returning for the October holidays.

Advance booking for both workshops is highly recommended as our children's activities regularly sell out.

Over 60s

Our popular Over 60s talks return once more - this season features talks on topics including the Tresham family, Wallis Simpson, Richard III and more.

Book early to secure your tickets. Booking opens Thursday 5 September at 1pm for the Over 60s talks. £3 per talk. Includes refreshments.

Work continues apace on the expansion of Northampton Museum & Art Gallery ahead of the re-opening in spring 2020 – the floor of the new extension and link is now in place and the steel framework for the roof, cladding and glazing has been installed. Take a sneak peek on page 3 of the new what's on guide.

To book for any of our events call 01604 838110 from 1-5pm, Tuesday to Sunday (Thursday to Sunday outside of school holidays) or book online through Eventbrite.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
