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.

Special thanks to Cesare Marinaro for once again producing our marvellous dog friendly pizza for the "Fastest Sausage Pizza eating" contest.

** 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. **
