Headlining the evening Maximum Robbie is without doubt one of the best Tribute acts performing on the European circuit today. Where Scott Borley (Robbie) is concerned energy and enthusiasm are undoubtedly the key. He has exploded onto the UK Tribute scene in a way truly reminiscent of the man himself. His energy and commitment levels are boundless and his resemblance to the real Robbie is striking to say the least. Let him totally entertain you with the vast array of hits including many of the Take That favourites and swing sets included, as well as some less conventional personal favourites from Scott's own personal archive.
Tickets are priced at £35.00, which includes a three course dinner, and are available by downloading the Ticket Request Form below and returning to Mrs Jemma Butler, Mayor's Secretary, Rushden Town Council, Rushden Hall, Rushden, Northants, NN10 9NG by Friday 10th February 2017.

Time: 7.00pm - 9.00pm
Venue: Heritage Church, Park Road, Rushden, NN10 0RW.
The Mayor of Rushden would like to invite you and your friends along to her family Carol Service. The evening is aimed to be a 'family friendly' service rather than a more traditional service, encouraging as many families and their children to come as possible.

Setting the trend, the wearing of a Christmas themed jumper is a must!!!
Following the service you are invited to stay for tea, coffee and mince pies in the Church Hall.
Mayor's Proms in the Park
A popular evening's entertainment with our very own 'Proms in the Park'. Set in the walled garden in the beautiful grounds of the Hall Park, with music provided by The Rushden Town Band playing all the favourites such as Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and Jerusalem.
7pm start with gates opening at 6pm.
Bring your own champagne, picnic, chairs and rugs.
Tickets are priced at £5 and are available from Rushden Town Council, Rushden Library or PW House (Jewellers).
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Mayor's Chosen Charities.
** Despite the inclement weather on Saturday we bravely continued with Proms in the Park, which was organised to raise funds for the Mayor's charities. After much discussion and deliberation during the day we decided to move the event into Rushden Hall. The rousing music was provided by the Rushden Town Band, who played with their usual expertise and skill, which got everyone in the mood. The great British spirit kicked in and all those who attended had a good time...a big thank you to all who supported the event. **

Bark in the Park - 4 September 2016
Rushden Town Council's third annual Dog Show has proven to be a huge success. The Show was generously sponsored by Destination Pets of Higham Ferrers and we would like to thank them for the prizes they gave for all the winners in all the classes.
We would like to thank all our local sponsors who sponsored individual classes. We had over 430 entries in the various classes and we managed to raise £1,400 for both the local animal charities who attended and the Mayor's charities.
Special thanks to Cesare Marinaro for once again producing our marvellous dog friendly pizza for the "Fastest Sausage Pizza eating" contest.
We would also like to thank Canine Coaching for their continued support for this event and all the Council staff, Councillors and volunteers who helped on the day.
