Corby Mardi Gras 2019
30th March 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Corby Mardi Gras returns for its 3rd year this weekend!
Traditionally, Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday and is celebrated in South America on Shrove Tuesday. In the UK we get pancakes and in South America, it’s carnivals! Corby’s Mardi Gras is not on a Tuesday and it isn’t a carnival but the basic idea of communities celebrating together remains a core part of the Corby Mardi Gras plans and here you’ll find out everything you need to know about the free event planned for Saturday March 30th from 1pm -8pm.
The Corby Mardi Gras has rapidly established itself as a highlight in the town’s event calendar and this year is set to be bigger than ever. Produced by Leicester based cultural development agency and arts charity, ArtReach, plans for this year’s event includes live music, illuminated woodland walks, free creative arts workshops and a whole host of family-friendly fun. All of which take place, in and around The Core at Corby Cube, Thoroughsale and Hazel Woods and the Rooftop Arts Centre with the main action in the James Ashworth VC square (outside the Cube).
What’s Happening On The Day
