The Branch AGM, Photographic Competition and Members’ Day this year will be held at the Humfrey Rooms, 10 Castilian Street, Northampton NN1 1LD from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m


The nearest car park is Albion Place behind the Derngate theatre but this is quite small. Best bets are the St John’s multi-storey (just off the roundabout on Victoria Promenade opposite Morrison’s) or the Grosvenor Centre multi-storey, which are both about ten minutes’ walk away. All multi-storey car parks are free on Saturday.

Our guest speaker:


Sam Ellis, Director of Conservation and Regions,
