During Summer 2021 we filmed a documentary about Northampton’s New Town story. It was made in collaboration with Eight Engines and features local Northampton residents talking about their personal experiences and opinions of Northampton as a New Town and its legacy on the town today. It premiered at Northampton Museum & Arts Gallery as part of our Finale celebrations on Friday 17th December 2021. 

You can watch the Documentary in the video player below. We recommend listening with headphones for the highest quality. Click CC if you’d like captions.
