Rushden Town Partnership 

Rushden Town Partnership is working with local businesses and the community to ensure Rushden remains a great place to live, a great place to visit. 
 

The best of both worlds 

Rushden town centre already offers a wealth of independent businesses as well as well-known high street brands within an attractive late Victorian/ Edwardian setting, an enduring reminder of Rushden's rise to prominence as a 'boot and shoe' town. Parking is FREE (in Council owned car parks). 
 
Now a new chapter in its development, Rushden Lakes offers an exciting new dimension to the existing town providing 30 acres of high quality shopping, restaurants, 12-screen cinema, and opens up 214 acres of lakes for leisure activity - an area of outstanding natural beauty within the Nene Valley for everyone to explore and enjoy. 
 

A thriving hub of events 

Organised events in and around Rushden bring added vibrancy to an already bustling atmosphere within the town.  
 
Events throughout the year include 'Party Week', a week-long programme of events for all culminating 'Party in the Park', music concerts, 'Proms', a dog show and the Switching On of the Christmas Lights in the High Street organised by Rushden Town Council. 
 
Other major events include Rushden Cavalcade, a 3-day rally organised by Rushden Historical Transport Society, Armed Forces Weekend and the traditional Rushden Feast, the largest ‘backend’ feast in Northamptonshire.  
Full details on our 'Events' page. 

Within easy access 

Rushden is centrally located on the A6 between Bedford and Kettering. The county of Bedfordshire borders the town to the south whilst to the north lies the River Nene and the stunning landscapes and world-class wildlife of the Nene Valley
 
Convenient road links via the A45 connect Rushden to the neighbouring towns of Wellingborough (4 miles) and Northampton (16 miles) and the M1 motorway westbound. The A14, the M1/M6 (North) and A1 are also within easy reach. Peterborough (30 miles), Milton Keynes (23 miles), Cambridge (44 miles) and the East coast are also easily accessible. 
 
Rushden is also well placed for train and airport links.

Advertising Offer to Rushden Town Partnership Members 
AFCR&D are incorporated as a Community Benefit Society, and conducts its business as a sporting club for the benefit of the community.  
Owned and run by its members, we are a non-profit making; all profits are retained for the benefit of the Club. This coming season we will have over 40 teams from our very young Community teams to our over 50's walking football team. 
So far it has been an amazing seven year journey for the club since our formation in 2011. Now back in Rushden for the past year playing at Hayden Road and a third promotion as a senior club is testament to the hard work everyone associated with the club has made. After two seasons of play off disappointment there was no hiding the delight as well as relief, when we finally secured promotion with a 7-1 win against Aylesbury FC in the last week of the season. 
A record club league attendance for the final league game at Hayden Road bodes well for next season when the club will start life at Step 3 in the Central Premier League and very much looking forward to doing battle with near neighbours Kettering Town. 
The club has lots of advertising and sponsorship opportunities for local businesses including perimeter single or double perimeter advertising boards and half or full page match programme adverts. Boards and adverts are available to Rushden Town Partnership members for the first year with up to a 25% discount. For the entire season, a single board costs just £225 (including VAT) and a half page advert £180 (including VAT)
For the first time next season we are offering local business advertising spaces within and around the ground for £120 (including VAT). A chance to advertise your business to supporters and guests of AFC Rushden & Diamonds as well as at Rushden & Higham United FC home matches. 
For more details of any of the above offers as well the many others advertising and sponsorship opportunities please contact marketing@afcdiamonds.com
