Be part of The Twelfth Player


We are looking for supporters who wish to take part in crowd scenes in the production of The Twelfth Player at Sixfields Stadium.

The Twelfth Player is a partnership between Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, Royal & Derngate and Northampton Town Football Club taking place this summer and will see audiences go behind the scenes on a 45 minute walking tour around Sixfields Stadium and through the past seventy years of the club’s history, viewing the passionate world of football through the eyes of three generations of a family of Cobblers supporters.

Taking place in the real world and on screen, this audio-visual performance devised by Seven Sisters Group blends site-specific performance and handheld video technology, moving the audience seamlessly between brilliantly observed characters.

The film will be watched by visitors on an iPod as they walk around the stadium and we are looking for supporters who wish to be in the crowd scenes.

The rehearsals will take place on Saturday 22nd April, between 10am-12noon, and the filming will take place on Wednesday 3rd May, 5-7pm at Sixfields. Volunteer fans will need to attend both times please.

Performances run from Wed 17 May to Tue 11 July. Visit for more information and to book.
