An exhibition delving into the Kettering area’s musical history is being held at the Manor House Museum from this June – and staff are asking people in the area if they have any artefacts they would be willing to loan to the event.

A spokesman for the museum said: “We aim to feature every sort of music from every 
decade right up to the present day.

“So if you have anything connected with Kettering’s music scene past and present - think pictures, posters, programmes, records, adverts, sheet music, instruments, record players, tape players, videos, autographs, clothing or memories - you would like to record, please get in touch as soon as possible.

“We are particularly interested in local musicians such as Richard Coles from The Communards, Horace Panter from The Specials, Jim Dale, Principal Edwards Magic Theatre and Mungo Jerry among others.

“Also the big names that came and played in the town such as Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac and The Who.”

If you have any items that you think may be suitable for the exhibition then contact Louise Hannam, museum officer, on 01536 535 609 or email
