Grow Festival returns for its final instalment on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 February 2020, lighting up Corby town centre with spectacular performances and intriguing installations.

For the third Grow FestivalMade in Corby and The Core at Corby Cube are delighted to join forces with ArtReach to incorporate the highly-successful Corby Mardi Gras event into the festival.

Once again, Grow will fill Corby town centre with an exciting range of performances, activities and experiences. Continuing to look at the essential ingredients for growth, in 2020 the festival will explore light in its many illuminating forms.

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.

Previous years

As Corby is one of the fastest growing boroughs outside of London, the festivals are aptly inspired by themes of water, light and food – all essential ingredients for growth. The first of the festivals in July 2018 saw over fifteen thousand people from Corby enjoying a wide range of performances, activities including making and parading giant jellyfish and marveling at Saturday’s headline performance, Music Of The Spheres on the Boating Lake.

The second Grow Festival, themed around food, attracted thousands of people, who didn’t let the rain dampen their spirits, to enjoy street performers, pop-up shows, music, interactive installations and local artists in the town centre and a giant Community Feast in Coronation Park. The feast saw hundreds of diners brave the elements to tuck into a delicious three course meal created by three talented local chefs and made with produce from local growing projects and rescued food supplied by Fruitful Abundance.
