Possible things to do

 

We thought we might do a craft thing if we get enough people. Magnolia Studios have various crafts you can do (ranging in price from 10 - 90) - this could be beaded jewellery, decorating pottery or (the more expensive) silver clay jewellery. This will take 2-3 hours. I need to get names soonest so that I can book this.

 

Northampton looks as if it may have better shopping than last years Kettering, so maybe a morning looking round with stops for coffee? I think its market day on the Saturday. Milton Keynes isn't too far away for those keen on the shopping experience.

 

The Marriott Hotel that some of us are staying at has a pool and a Spa so you might like to book a treatment and spend some time at the pool. It could be nicer if you have someone to chat to.

 

If you like looking round grand houses and gardens there are plenty of those in the area. Althorp House, Castle Ashby, Rockingham Castle, Haddonstone show gardens to name but a few.

 

For those interested in Museums or Art there is the National Waterways Museum at Stoke Bruerne, Northampton Central Museum which has an interesting collection of shoes, 78 Derngate, Northampton - a Charles Rennie Mackintosh house with gallery, the gallery at the Old Dairy Farm Centre near Weedon and Woodnewton Pottery.

 

For those with children there is always Wicksteed Park at Kettering where the show was last year or the West Lodge Rural Centre about 20 miles north of Northampton.

 

If you know the area and think there is somewhere we should see, please do get in touch and let us know.
