If you’d like your event publishing in The Rudd and on the Parish Council website, please send us details by the 15th of the preceding month.
The Ruddington Diary gives you details of events happening near in and around the village. You’ll find details of regular events, activities and classes in the Get Involved section of our website, so make sure you take a look at these listings also.
** Don’t forget to check the Rushcliffe Borough Council website for full details of what’s on at Rushcliffe Country Park as not all their events appear here. **
Tell us about your event!
This diary is totally dependent on organisers giving us information about forthcoming events. Please make sure you contact the Parish Council office with details of your event in plenty of time if you want it publishing. Although we only publish details of events up to 3 months ahead, please let us have details as early as possible.
Please note that content from this page will also be published in the Village Newsletter. To make sure your event or activity is included, please send us the details by the 15th of the month before it takes place.
