Heritage Family Fun Day
Sunday 15th September 2019

The second Heritage Family Fun Day is being held on Sunday 15th September between 10am and 4pm at Rushden Lakes. The event is one of many taking place during the Nene Valley Festival and the National Heritage Open Weekends. The aim of the Heritage Day is to strengthen partnership working between Rushden and Higham Ferrers Town Councils.

Entertainment lined up so far includes performances from local bands, medieval fun, games and entertainment, face painting and pottery making. Many local businesses have signed up for the opportunity to have a stall for the day to promote themselves. Members from both Town Councils will be handing out goody bags to encourage visitors to explore further afield. The bags will include the latest "Shop Local" booklet of shopping vouchers which can be spent in Rushden and Higham Ferrers throughout the autumn.
