Events and festivals taking place in Harborough

From village events to large festivals, theatre productions to country fairs, there's lots happening in our district.

Throughout the year Kilworth House Theatre and Rockingham Castle host a wide variety of events. Hallaton Hare Pie Scramble & Bottle Kicking is an annual 18th century traditional event taken place in Hallaton Village, where Hallaton and Medbourne villagers battle for the cask of ale. Getting bigger and better every year, the Foxton Locks Festival makes a great weekend for all the family with something for everyone including crafts, music and quality family entertainment.
