    The fun will continue with dinosaurs coming to Rushden Lakes for the first time.

    Throughout the day on August 16 and August 23, visitors can get up close and personal with some pre-historic beasts and learn facts from the dinosaur rangers.

    Musical entertainment is also coming to the boardwalk every Sunday and Wednesday with the Silver Surfers, who will be playing music from the 50s to the 80s.

    As well as all this, other events will be taking place each week throughout the summer, including food and drinks fairs by the Pop Up planners, performances from local community groups and activities with the Rushden Rangers in partnership with The Wildlife Trust.

    Centre manager Donna French said: “We are so excited to celebrate our fifth birthday and we are bringing brand new entertainment to Rushden Lakes that we’ve never had here before.

    "We have taken the time to plan something for everyone to enjoy and the best part is all the events are free to attend.

    "We can’t wait to see the reaction from our visitors this summer.”
