Heritage Open Days are happening across the UK from 10 to 19 September 2021, which are a great opportunity to explore historic locations. There are lots of events happening locally, including at Delapre Abbey this weekend. Do come along to this free history festival to explore this beautiful historic building and park, see a display of classic cars, and find out about the town’s history!
History and English from the University of Northampton will be at Delapre on 12 September. We will have a stall where you can talk to us about our subjects and the courses we offer, and we will also have some mystery objects for you to examine. There will also be a range of talks going on throughout the day:
12pm: Dr Jim Beach, “Major Cartwright and the 1919 revolution in Northampton”
1pm: Dr Rod Rosenquist, “Mapping Alan Moore’s Northampton: Fiction and History”
2pm: Prof Matthew McCormack, “Thinking about Georgian shoes”
Do come along and say hello! Entry is free and events kick off at 11am.
