SHINE is a historical journey linking five of Northamptonshire's finest churches through a celebration of their unique heritage


Shine's success relied upon the enthusiasm, hard work and generosity of partners and volunteers. The churches, heritage centres and historical societies involved each provided vital resources for the project, and continue to offer help and information to those who wish to learn more about the county's rich heritage.

The education programme for local schools and youth organisations included drawing, poetry, lantern-making and film-making, giving children from Northamptonshire a chance to learn about their local heritage while contributing to the Shine illumination events.

Film-making workshops were generously funded by The Mighty Creatives, a charity working with children to champion their innovation and creativity.
