Charter Reading & free breakfast at Corby Pole Fair

The Pole Fair begins with a reading of the charter by the vicar at the three entrances to the village, with the oldest resident of the village (June Thompson), the Mayor (Cllr Tafadzwa Chikoto) and the vicar (Rev. Paul Frost) ‘chaired’ in between and hymns from combined choir of St James Gretton and St John Corby.

Prior to this, the church bells will ring to awaken the village. After the charter reading, there will be a free breakfast on the Charter Field, thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund.

Breakfast is first come, first served until it’s all gone!

Then at 8am Corby Silver Band (who were formed for the Pole Fair in 1902) will play on the Charter Stage.

The charter readings begin at 6am outside St John’s Church, moving to outside the White Hart and then near the Cardigan Arms.
