Our story so far ...
The Rockin' Roadrunner is a club night and festival for adults with disabilities which has been hailed as the greatest club experience in the whole world!
Our aim is to give our users the best night of their lives in a safe and friendly club environment.
The quarterly events are held at The Roadmender in Northampton and are filled with the most awesome live bands, DJ's, performers and tributes acts. Including Such talents as 'The Whiley Sisters' (Frances & Jo), DJ Mark Dean, Heavy Load, Similar Jones and Anyone Out There' to name but a few.
And that's not all ...
We also run The Rockin' Roadrunner Festival, which takes place in September in Abington Park, Northampton - take a look at the video below to see what went on previously and see the festival page for more info.
We once again joined the fantastic Northampton Carnival on 14th June 2014 with our own float and costumes which were made at our creative workshops (kindly funded by Northampton Community Foundation.)
Since its opening in 2007 the Roadrunner crew have provided some great workshops, teaching skills such as DJing, VJing, Prop and costume making and and have provided many of the users the opportunity to share work or perform in the club and festival.

Why the community needs us
We help to provide a unique night club experience for disabled people, young and old. It's an evening of music, dancing, socialising and fun. Our guests tell us they very much enjoy the experience of seeing live bands which is normally an out of reach opportunity for them.
Our impact on the community
Rockin' Roadrunner offer a night our guests remember and the excitement of looking forward to the next one, this is an extremely important means for them to get together and socialise. The club is the chance to meet up with friends that they perhaps only see on the club nights. New, long standing friendships are established and fun experiences are shared.
