Splore at The Core

Splore at The Core, which will bring Corby Town Centre and The Core at Corby Cube to life with two days of street performances, shows and free activities returns on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 February.

Friday’s activities take place at The Core at Corby Cube and include The Adventures of Peregrine the Penguin, a delightful tale for children under 6 and Starchitects, an exciting trip to outer space with circus & dance company Motionhouse – a must-see and ideal first trip to the theatre for children.

There are also free drama and dance taster sessions for young people aged 8-16 years, and arts & crafts workshops creating pieces from recycled materials.

On Saturday, Corby Town Centre will host 2 faced dance who will present the emotional and athletic Lungs of our City, The Core’s Core Create and Core Motion participants present Power Up, and the venue’s Over 55’s Dance group perform Dance Yourself Happy. Autin Dance Theatre return and invite people to parade alongside the The Giant Wheel. Plus there will be impromptu appearances by Vamos Theatre’s Cheapskate Caterers and The Bicycle Ballet.

Throughout the day, the Festival Hub located adjacent to the canopy in Willow Place, will play host to Ben MacPherson who will be performing poetry for kids, MBD will be hosting a Steel Town Tales workshop, and drop in arts and crafts workshops will be taking place during the day.

The Campervan Stage located in Queen’s Square will host three local musical acts, Olly King Cheeko and Friends, Kian McIntyre and Sam-D Godoy.
