What's On In Kettering

Easter Egg Trail

Saturday 1 to 15 April 2023 (excluding Sundays and Bank Holidays)

Come and have some Easter fun in Kettering town centre this spring with a free trail around the shops.

Children can pick up a trail sheet from the library, the first stop on the treasure hunt, and then must follow the map around town to find all the hidden Easter eggs.

When they've found all the hidden eggs, youngsters can head to the final stop on the trail and pick up a free, sweet treat.

You can get a sheet from the library, or any of the shops on the trail, or use the link below to download and print it.

The trail starts at the library, then goes to Kafe Bloc, Butterwick, up Market Street to The Toy Box, Illicit, down High Street to Geek Retreat and The Bean Hive, along to Waterstones before ending at The Sweet Shop.

We hope you enjoy the trail - and please tag us in your photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and we will share them!

Fun in the Market Place this summer

Saturdays 29 April, 27 May, 24 June & 22 July 2023

The events will bring a mixture of food and drink stalls, crafts and local business stands, live music and entertainment and games to the town centre.

The events will bring some fun into the Market Place and be a chance for all ages to get together and enjoy the best of the town.

Last year's Streetfood Saturdays were really popular and we are hoping as many people as possible will come along to support the events this year.

The Summer Saturdays will be held on Saturdays 24 April, 27 May, 24 June and 22 July.

Kettering Town Council is inviting traders, local businesses and organisations to take up places at the events.
