Rushden Lakes is ready to welcome back shoppers, diners and leisure seekers back to the retail park from Monday (April 12).

Across England non-essential retail outlets will re-open for the first time since Christmas Eve and pubs and restaurants will be able to offer sit down table service al fresco.

Not only will shoppers be able to grab the latest fashions from the stores and boutique but people looking to burn lockdown calories can take to the climbing walls of Rock Up.
