Now there’s a new way to take a look into the past as you explore North Yorkshire’s County Town, guided by the ‘Discover Northallerton’ app in the palm of your hand.

Discover more about the heritage of Northallerton and uncover hidden stories of fascinating people, places and events that shaped this historic market town through the centuries.

With 2 trails, there is loads of fun to be had!

‘Autumnfest trail with the Mowbrees’ enjoying the sights as we watered Tinker Mowbree’s veggie patch near the phone box, threw conkers in Applegarth Park, searched for treats hiding in pumpkins in Zetland Street, and danced with the twins, Violet and Spike Mowbree, by the pedestrian crossing!

‘Portals into the Past’ entitles the second trail, which is packed with information about the history of the town and we had chance to have a little look, but would love to return another day to take in the details of the trail.  Here you can uncover Northallerton’s hidden stories of fascinating people, places and events, including the Town Hall and Shambles, the Rutson Hospital, Register House, and the original site of Northallerton Grammar School before it moved to Grammar School Lane and then became Northallerton College.  This would be a great trail for schools to use as part of a local history project.

Hoglets Theatre presents A Midsummer Night’s Mischief – Sat 30 March, 2.30pm
By Gemma Curry – after William Shakespeare
The fairies in the forest are starting a fight – but which side are you on? Team Titania or Team Oberon? Hoglets Theatre presents an interactive, fun and larger-than-life production, based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Expect wild characters, raucous singalong songs, puppets, stunts, and some frankly ridiculous disco dancing! Get yourselves down to the forest – it’s all kicking off!

A Midsummer Night’s Mischief is a play designed especially for young children (with recommended ages being 5-11 years old – but everyone is welcome). And whilst we love the bard, no previous experience of Shakespeare is required!
