This Local Government Challenge focuses on reviving Northampton's night time offering to all its residents

In the third episode of the Local Government Challenge, the contestants are set a night time challenge in Northampton. The town is a thriving centre with a buzzing after dark scene but like many urban centres in the UK it attracts a large number of partygoers at the weekends, despite a concerted effort to promote its cultural offerings such as the famous Royal and Derngate Theatre. The task for this challenge is for the contestants to experience a Friday night out in Northampton and then come up with a strategy that will revitalise the town's night time economy and make it a an after dark destination that will appeal to everyone, from drinkers to thinkers.
