The arts festival, which took place on July 1, 2 and 3, began with a home-made craft and food fair at the Corn Market Hall and the KettFest Beer Festival at The Three Cocks, which is taking place all weekend.

Among the sights for shoppers to enjoy over the weekend was music in Kino Lounge, street performers including jugglers, poetry and photographic competitions, a display of fossils from the United Kingdom Amateur Fossil Hunters, craft stalls and yarn bombing which covered numerous benches and lamp-posts.

The Yards held a northern soul night and there was more live music at the Kettering Arts Centre, Prince of Wales and The Peacock.
