The central hub of Northants Open Studios for the past three years has been Lamport Hall. Mark Herrod of Lamport Hall said “It is incredibly exciting to see the unification of Northants and Rutland Open Studios. We have been privileged to host NOS as the central hub and look forward to welcoming NROS for the 2024 exhibition. This is a momentous time for art across both counties.”
