19 Things Everyone Who Grew Up In 90s Northamptonshire Remembers
RIP Charlie the Swinging Monkey.
The now demolished Greyfriars Bus Station was one of the ugliest buildings in Britain.
The mere sight of it even recently made Justin Bieber dry wretch.
Every trip to Abington Park was followed by a trek up the "mountain" to the ice cream van.
Being dragged round the Grosvenor Centre by your mum/nan/partner was equal to some kind of hell.
Any event would make the news, no matter how trivial.
The Market Square was the best place to get anything at a cut price.
You owned hundreds of pairs of DMs.
You’d snigger EVERY SINGLE TIME you passed the Bell End sign.
Every primary school had a trip to Kingswood Activity Centre.
And you had a roller disco birthday party at Benham Sports Arena.
Or you cameoed as James Bond at Quasar Laser.
You probably queued up for hours outside Toys "R" Us to buy a Tamagotchi.
You could spend hours in the joke shop on the Welly Road.
"Greebos" would hang out by the front of Spinadisc and Black Rose.
You’d spend hours dressing up for the nappy nights at Ritzy and Glenvilles.
And If you were alternative you’d head to the Soundhaus.
The balloon festival and town show were the highlights of the year.
