Rediscover Northampton

Camera, action, lights – new film launched today to promote Northampton town centre

The Northampton BID are extremely proud to announce the launch of the new ‘Rediscover Northampton’ film – a snapshot of many of our most popular attractions, shops and businesses.

This film, produced in partnership with the BID by Northampton Borough Council’s Love Northampton campaign, features appearances from the BID’s very own Kimberley and Bailey and a range of town centre businesses – all of whom have come together to urge residents to rediscover and support our town centre.

From fresh local produce in the Market Square, to family businesses on Abington Street and cosy cafes throughout the Heritage Gateway, this short film has been produced to encourage visitors to move around the different areas of the town and rediscover Northampton’s best kept secrets.

Thank you to all the businesses that have starring roles in this film, including market traders, St Giles Cheese, G&E McIntyres, OllyB’s, Saffron, Matchbox Cafe, Yellow Bourbon, Humpit, Dreams Coffee Lounge, Vintage Guru, Singh and Smile, Mooch, Michael Jones Jewellers, 78 Derngate, George’s Café inside Northampton & County Club, St Giles Ale House, Grosvenor Shopping, Phipps Brewery, Montague Jeffery, Voni Blu, Watts the Furnishers and The Market Tavern.

Enjoy this film and please share far and wide – on your websites and across all your social media channels. Download from the BID’s YouTube channel HERE.

This film has been funded by the ERDF Reopening High Streets Safely fund.

Fashion Show Raises £1000

Fashion Show Raises £1000

We have got some excellent news about the money collected at the Voni Blu Fashion show held here a few weeks ago. Those who attended will remember the club being invaded by long legged creatures wearing incredible designer clothes from Voni Blu and parading on stage showing them off in all their glory.

The event made a substantial sum of money for Breast Cancer UK and we have just heard that our friends the Freemasons that they are boosting the sum collected up to amazing £1000. We look forward to holding more events like this especially for our Lady Members and would like to thank all those who supported this show.

May we also thank our Chef Nathan Russell (of My Health Hut) who provided amazing nibbles, Dave our Bar Manager and all the Committee Members who rolled up their sleeves and really mucked in to make the event the success it was.

Take a look at some of the fashion and beautiful models involved in this evening:

Form a “Cue” For Steve Davis

Cheyne Walk Club - Steve DavisSparks may fly as the first break smashes through docile snooker balls on the green baize table at The Cheyne Walk Club.

This May 13th, renowned Snooker Champions Steve Davies and Dennis Taylor are once again drawing crowds to the Annual Snooker Club Dinner with an exciting Exhibition match.

Those who are lucky enough to reserve a ticket will witness a rerun of what fans say was the most famous snooker final ever, the Black-ball final of 1985!

Adam Finch, the club’s Chairman said, “Steve has been coming to The Cheyne Walk Club since the 1990s, but this will the first time we will have seen him play a re-run match with Dennis Taylor in our snooker room.   Michaela Tabb is our regular referee and I can sense that tensions will be high until the last ball is potted.”

Tickets are being reserved for Club members in the first instance at £55 for the main room and £45 and £35 for the smaller dining room. This includes a 3 course meal and Steve and Dennis talking about their past experiences in the game, as well as being able to watch the exhibition matches after the dinner.

The Cheyne Walk Club has seen the movers and shakers of Northampton play some of the greatest names in world snooker for decades, a fact that is supported by the many photos adorning the walls of the fully equipped snooker room, who knows, these legends may be looking down at possible budding Champions in the making.

The last word is from Steve Davis, he said, “I am really looking forward seeing old friends at the club and chatting to them over dinner, I always feel comfortable playing here, I’ve been coming here so long, it’s like coming home”.
