• 16 great things to do in Northants!

    Pinch punch first of the month. This week’s What’s On has us running from one side of the county to the other like a March Hare.  We’ve got gorgeous gardens, beautiful spring bouquets and should it get a bit nippy out there we’ve got plenty of Northants arts and culture to keep us company. We’ve […]

  • What’s On in Northants until 18 January

    Right. We’re picking up the pace in Northamptonshire. Only two weeks into the new term and we’re already finding lots of things to be getting on with. This week’s What’s On gives us the opportunity to squeeze into our Christmas gladrags one more time before hitting the gym (or at least trying to be good […]

  • Christmas Shows in Northants & beyond: Oh yes they are

    Northamptonshire’s Christmas shows come in all shapes and sizes, but we’re bringing you the ones that have caught our eye, because they’re either Christmassy, funny, sing-a-longy, joyous and any combination of all the above. It’s a great time of year to get your gladrags on, find yourself a babysitter/spouse sitter and let somebody else do […]

  • What’s On: 24 – 30 Nov

    Well here we go.  It’s officially time to start thinking about making the most of the festive scene here in Northants (I’ve already lost two Xmas presents I thought I was being organised in buying). This week the Muddy Guide has a flavour of good times and boogie, as well as some classy performances and more than […]

  • Review – Dirty Dancing at the Derngate!

    ‘Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.’ Damn you Dirty Dancing, for […]

  • Muddy Guide to What’s On this week…

    Food, wine and song, it’s all here in your Muddy round-up kids! Macmillan Coffee Morning, Royal & Derngate, 30 Sep Mornin’ folks, still sleepy? Come down to the Derngate and grab a warm cup of liquid gold. I’d say first one’s on us but that’s a lot of coffee. It’s being held this Friday, in […]

  • Muddy watches – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

    Well they came, they sang and they conquered and Muddy was lucky enough to be within spitting distance of Jason Manford who played the role of Caractacus Potts (rather ruddy well actually)! More well-known for appearances on TV shows such Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats and QI, the seemingly multi-talented Jason Manford took […]

  • The Oasis Film Trailer – One Of My Fave Bands Ever!

    Remember the Nineties? Go on, send your mind wayyy back and pop on your parka to the time when Oasis were heralded as the new Beatles, Britpop was rampant, and Union Jacks were flying around with a refreshing and rare lack of national irony. On October 2 a documentary film, Supersonic, about the rise and […]

    • Don’t waste time on jealousy…

        I was reading Muddy Oxon/Bucks the other day (well, gotta keep up with the competition ; ) when up popped Baz Luhrmann’s Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen and it reminded me of days gone by where I listened to this on continuous replay! The advice fits today, as well as it did when I heard […]

    • High Five Northants – Tearooms

      As it’s National Afternoon Tea Week this week (8th-14th August) we thought it would be fitting to fill you scrummy lot in on five fabuloso tea rooms in the county (admittedly, it finishes tomorrow, but hey, tea’s not just for National Afternoon Tea Week! From jazz lounges to art galleries these tearooms really do highlight the […]
