Corby’s Mardi Gras Returns!

Happy Friday, January is FINALLY over! We hope everyone has enjoyed the start of 2019 so far.

As temperatures continue to plummet, miserably, we feel it’s only fair we share some exciting news about Corby’s upcoming events.

The Mardi Gras

With great thanks to the funding from Arts Council England, it has been announced that there will be a third year of the Mardi Gras, taking place in Corby on the 30th of March! This is a fantastic event that involves live music, street theatre, illuminating sculptures and much more for everyone to get involved with.

After the success of the previous years, this year we can look forward to an array of workshops and visual arts, including the Rooftop Arts Centre’s, pyramid lantern workshop that will feature at the event. Local schools will also be involved in the run up to the Mardi Gras, as Creative Futures will be working with them to create sound installations that will also feature at the event.

Whatever the weather, the Mardi Gras is a great way for the whole community to get together to celebrate all the local art, music and culture Corby has to offer. So, make sure to save the date in your diary!

Photo Competition – Votes, votes, votes!

So, as you may know, this month we will be announcing the winner of the Photo Competition. As mentioned in the last blog post, voting is now open so remember to check out the competition on our website to cast your vote on who deserves to be our winner.

There are some very artistic submissions and definitely some worthy winners who showcase the talent amongst our community. However, we still need your votes to help us decide who will be our February winner of the £50 prize, alongside the £50 donation to our Oakley Vale Community Association.

Last but not least, keep your eyes peeled for our new photo-competition that will be announced at the end of this month!

Have a great weekend!
