Half a million reasons to visit

The town's historic Market Square had its brand new look unveiled at the end of the free music festival there this weekend.

Designed by multi-media artist, Jo Fairfax, ‘Square Light’ brings art and town regeneration together in a major project for the town that uses state-of-the-art colour change LED lights alongside unique animated projections.

New lights in Northampton's Market SquareWest Northamptonshire Development Corporation (WNDC) has invested £354,000, whilst Arts Council England (ACE) has awarded £60,000 of funding to the project.

Two historical characters linked to the area, George Bernard Shaw and Francis Crick, will be seen strolling about and waving down to the people of Northampton from a ghostly balcony of the former Peacock Hotel – all cleverly projected on to the large windows of the modern Peacock Place shopping centre.
