Support Grow Festival and help put Corby on the cultural map
Grow is a series of outdoor arts festivals commissioned by Made in Corby and co-produced with The Core at Corby Cube that has seen thousands of people descend on Corby’s town centre for a weekend of fun and entertainment in both 2018 and 2019, and promises to be even more spectacular in 2020!
However, whilst Grow remains predominantly free to attend it is far from free to produce as it relies on public funding from Arts Council England through the National Lottery, as well the generosity of audiences and sponsors. Grow Festival 2020 is fast approaching and the organisers are asking for help from local businesses and residents to help make it happen.
As Corby is the fastest growing borough outside London, the festivals are aptly inspired by the elements necessary for healthy growth – first Water in 2018, then Food in 2019 – and over the weekend of Friday 7 and Saturday 8 February 2020 the town centre will be animated with Light!
Amongst the highlights are a magical music and light parade on the Friday evening with the Spark! drummers and a spectacular aerial dance finale from Heliosphere on Saturday night that will delight people of all ages. The Core at Corby Cube will host the iconic Museum of The Moon light installation and sprinkled around the town centre you’ll find many surprising walkabout acts, multi-sensory experiences and enchanting performances.
Made in Corby and The Core at Corby Cube are also delighted to be joining forces with ArtReach to incorporate the extremely popular Corby Mardi Gras event in 2020, as well as working alongside local young people who are getting involved as decision makers and artists. Northamptonshire’s Britain’s Best Surprise campaign will also formally launch their 2020 Year of Arts and Culture initiative at Grow Festival, putting Corby firmly on the county’s cultural map.
