This Saturday ,the 22nd October the Guildhall will be celebrating the laying of the foundation stone 150 years ago.
The Mayor Jamie Lane opened the week-long events in the Guildhall Court Room last night and the exhibition is well worth a visit.
There are also and regular tours of the Guildhall with excellent guides who are willing to share not only the history of the Guildhall but also reflect on the hundreds of years of Northampton history that the building represents.
Thanks should also go to the Fire Service Museum based in Weedon who have given not only exhibits but also volunteer dressed in historical uniforms.
There is now a very serious intent to find a space to put on a permanent display in the Guildhall.
