After a year’s break The Bardic Picnic is returning and that means a new Bard of Northampton will be chosen.
Contenders will perform at the event in Becket’s Park on Sunday and a combination of popular vote and judges panel will decide the winner.
The current bard, punk musician Mitchell Taylor, said: “It’s going to be weird not being the bard any more. I love coming up to Northampton doing gigs. Everyone here is so lovely.”
