A competition to offer a Northampton band the opportunity to perform on stage at Alive at Delapre has been announced by Northampton Borough Council.

The lucky winners will be selected to showcase their talent by warming up a crowd of thousands before Boyzone headline the gig at Delapre Park on Sunday July 20.

The competition will take place at the annual Walk in the Park Festival at Wooton Rec on July 5, where local bands will battle it out to win their spot on the Alive at Delapre stage.
