Hundreds attend ‘peaceful’ illegal rave near King’s Cliffe


About 1,000 people turned up to an illegal rave near King’s Cliffe.

Police were called to West Hay Lodge, near Collyweston Great Wood, at about 1am on Sunday (October 18). A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said an “unlicensed music event” was taking place.

The spokesman said about 1,000 people were that at the rave’s peak, but it was a peaceful event and no arrests were made. The rave had fully dispersed by mid-Sunday afternoon.

PC Joe Lloyd, posting from the @OakhamPolice Twitter account, said the rave was “very isolated” so local residents should not have heard anything.
