Discover Northampton - our new, voucher-packed, town centre magazine
Take a look at our new Discover magazine, being delivered to more than 30,000 Northampton homes this month.
 
Turn the pages and you will see that this new A5 magazine is packed with special offers and money off vouchers – for residents to redeem in town centre businesses.
 
This magazine has been produced by the BID to inspire people and give them yet more reasons to come into our town centre.
 
We couldn’t feature every business in this first magazine, but this is the first of what we hope will be a regular series – so we want to hear from you.
 
If you would like to be featured in our next issue, which we will be working on in September and will be distributed in early November, please phone us, email the office or talk to our Host Kimberley.
 
Get in touch and we look forward to chatting soon. View our new magazine online HERE .
