Activities

  • Rushden Lakes has summer covered

    Kids moaning about being bored already? Take them to the Lakes for multiple days of activities and fun with Cineworld, Paradise Island, Canoe2 and loads of shops and eateries to keep them occupied

  • Young actors ahoy! We need you…

    Got a young performer who'd love to be on stage? The Castle Theatre has got that covered...

  • Rushden Lakes fest for 2nd B’day

    Can you believe it’s already been two years since the opening of Rushden Lakes? Oh, how time flies. To celebrate, the Lakes are pulling out all the stops to make it a Birthday to remember

  • Cineworld Rushden Lakes

    Bursting with the latest cinema tech, featuring fourteen state-of-the-art screens including IMAX, 4DX and the biggie, ScreenX, you're gonna want to give this a go!

  • Rushden Lakes – the one-stop-shop for May half term

    Exploring, climbing, canoeing and pizza competitions, what more do you want for the school holiday break?

  • Dinasour Live! Go. It’s like Jurassic Park!!!

    Astonishing (and remarkably life-like) dinosaurs that are going to make memories forever. Well done Royal & Derngate!

  • Waendel walking on sunshine

    Muddy looks forward to this weekend for lots of reasons. It's dog and kid friendly, you don't have to be super-fit to take part, and there are numerous watering holes on every route

  • Muddy walks: Irchester Country Park

    It has an adventure course with zip lines, a huge outdoor play area, a cafe and a network of trails in a 200-acre area of woodland. What's not to like?

  • Rock up and climb!

    I tried out rock climbing at Rushden Lakes, perfect for any age (even mine) and I jumped off a 7m wall!

  • 360 Soft Play in Half Term?!

    We sent a pair of trusted Mudlets to the new 360 play at Rushden Lakes to try it out and give it the real Muddy verdict!
