Also on the bill will be Rushden's talented Eclipse gymnastics team showing off their skills.

A spokesman for Rushden Town Council said: “The Rushden Cyclists have their best disco flares on ready, the funfair has been erected in Hall Park, and if you listen carefully you will hear the townspeople obliviously humming their favourite Abba tunes as they carry out their daily business.

“The headline act for the evening's entertainment will be a return performance from 'Abba Revival' giving us the opportunity to sing along to all of Abba's songs. It’s an evening not to be missed.”
