Northampton Museums and Art Gallery win a heritage award.

Against some stiff competition, the museum service won Best Event at the Annual Northamptonshire Heritage Forum Awards for Transport Day 2022 at Abington Park.

The judges were impressed with this outside event where the museum service worked with 35 local organisations and private collectors and enthusiasts to stage a major display of heritage vehicles including vintage fire engines, buses and motorbikes. Over 3,000 people attended the event and this was our most successful Transport Day yet, bouncing back well after 2 fallow years due to Covid.
