The Rudyard lake League of friends has organised many events since it’s formation in 1998. Due to the growth of fund raising festivals locally, it has made it more difficult to arrange an event which does not conflict. The main event currently is a firework and light show held in November around bonfire night.
On 31st May 2015 there will be a classic car event which which will include children entertainment along with a visit from the Chernobyl children.
In May 2016 an event is being planned around a Victoriana theme including traditional fanfare along with high wire walker crossing the lake.
