Oakley Vale – What’s On? Round-Up…

Happy Friday folks!

We hope you’re having a great weekend! Did you go to see the unveiling of the new sculpture for Oakley Vale? It’s beautiful, and a lovely addition to the landscape we think! You can see some great photos of the unveiling on our Facebook here.

Submissions for our Photo of the Month Competition for July are still open! So get your snaps submitted here, or via our Facebook and Twitter.

It’s now officially summer holiday season (at least for the kids) – and that means there are plans to be made. Maybe you’re off on holiday around the country or abroad, but if you’re looking for things to do before then there’s lots going on in the area. This weekend is particularly busy as July comes to an end. Take a look:

  • Children’s Fun Club – All Weekend – Corby Rugby Club is playing host to the Children’s Fun Club from Thursday 27th – 30th with a lot of things to do including a number of inflatable slides and activity zones, various children’s rides, funhouses and much more! There is free car parking and entry, and it’s £6.99 per wristband for unlimited rides.
  • Corby Collective presents a Night of Music – Saturday 29th July – Hosted at Coronation Park Pavilion, this is one for all the family. After a wonderful first event at the Rooftop Art Centre the Corby Collective are set to present their next event at the Coronation Park Pavilion. A free event – so bring a picnic, refreshments and your lovely selves. A relaxing laid back / country vibe from accomplished Corby musicians and singers.
  • Corby Gymnastics Funday – Sunday 30th July – Corby Gymnastics are hosting their Funday at the Corby Gymnastics Academy in July. There will be a Fire Engine, Police, bouncy castle, BBQ, face painting and lots more! Follow the Facebook event page.
  • Breakfast with Mickey! – August 1st – This could be one to get the young ones very excited. Enjoy a full breakfast buffet (full english and continental) at the Holiday Inn in Corby with a surprise visit from Mickey Mouse! Tickets are £7.50 per person and an adult gets in free with every two children’s places booked! See more.
  • Corby Smash Summer BBQ – August 12th – Come and join Corby Smash for a summer table tennis BBQ and party! The action starts at 1pm and finishes at 4pm. Tickets cost £10 in advance or £15 on the door. Food, music, drinks (no alcohol allowed) and as much table tennis as you can handle and maybe a chance to challenge the staff and coaches to a match or two as well!
