The Yards development in Kettering is nearing completion

A Kettering shopping development which is set to open in October is holding a free electronic music event tomorrow.

The Yards, just off Market Street, will play host to a number of DJs playing drum and bass, trance and house music from 10.30am to 9.30pm.

Development director Michaela Jones said: “This promises to be a really fun event with a bar and a really relaxed atmosphere and I’m looking forward to it.

“I’d like to thank Cllr Michael Brown and his crew for helping to organise the event.

“This site is the start of such an exciting project that came from a similar one in Rothwell, but the retail side has really blown up.

The complex, which is scheduled to open on October 10, has filled 65 per cent of the units, many of which are set to be ‘quirky’.

Michaela added: “The development is going to have a really independent feel to it, with plenty of lounges and cocktail bars.

“The shops will be situated in a variety of sites, ranging from old barns to shipping containers.”
