Heritage Family Fun Day – Sunday 15th September 10am – 4pm

The second Heritage Family Fun Day is happening this Sunday at Rushden Lakes, the heritage day is one of many events taking place as part of the Nene Valley Festival (14th to 22nd September) and the National Heritage Open Weekends. The aim of heritage family fun day is to strengthen partnership working between Rushden and Higham Ferrers Town Councils and nearby Rushden Lakes and to raise awareness of the local high street offer.

Plans for the family fun day are based around local heritage and bring together a wide array of interesting information about the local towns of Rushden and Higham Ferrers. Entertainment includes performances from local bands, an exciting open top bus tour highlighting the history of the local area, a free film screening at Cineworld of the Higham Ferrers Charters film, medieval fun, games and entertainment, face painting, and many other activities. As part of the event many local heritage groups and nearby high street businesses have signed up for the opportunity to have a stand for the day to promote their business. Members from Rushden Town Council and Higham Ferrers Town Council will be handing out goody bags to encourage visitors to explore further afield; the promotional bags will include the latest "Shop Local" booklet of shopping vouchers and concessions which can be spent in Rushden and Higham Ferrers throughout the autumn.

Come along and enjoy a family fun day at Rushden Lakes and discover more about the local heritage in the nearby towns of Rushden and Higham Ferrers.

The fun starts at 10am until 4pm.
