Explore Kettering's history at the Manor House Museum. Up and coming programmes include a winter season of Ancient Egyptians in Jan to March 2005 and a Spring season of Tudors in April to June, both including a temporary exhibition, living history event, talk and children's activities. In the summer we are planning a Dinosaur exhibition, and the Autumn will bring with it a season of World War II, as we remember the 60th anniversary of the end of the war.

At the Alfred East Art Gallery there's a constantly changing programme of exhibitions, including for example an exhibition of Sir Alfred East's etchings in April 2005, and a national touring exhibition of figurative sculptures in June and July, called Archetypes.

Once you have experienced the Heritage Quarter you can use our Tourist Information Centre to find out about what else the Borough and surrounding area have to offer. The Tourist Information Centre is also a good place to shop for gifts and an unusual souvenir of your visit.
