Countdown to Christmas!

We have our biggest Christmas events programme ever in Corby town centre this year, including free children’s craft workshops, festive walkabout characters, live music and a pop-up Christmas market with bar and street food stalls.

As well as our usual decorations, taking pride of place in Corporation Street will be a giant illuminated ‘Happy Santa’. Plus, join our snow family for another seasonal selfie in Willow Place!
