Time To TAKEOVER Postponement notice

At Made In Corby we have taken the decision to postpone this weekend’s Time To Takeover event until a future date.

The event has been co-created with a range of older people’s groups including several care homes. Due to the spread of COVID19 those care homes are no longer attending public events and therefore are unable to participate in our Time To Takeover event. So whilst there is no immediate guidance from central government to cancel community events we have taken the decision to postpone.
“We will restage the event at a time when the people who created the work can fully participate in this wonderful celebration of their creativity!”
Helen Willmott (Made In Corby Programme Director)

We are very sorry for any disappointment caused.

Please note that the following activities were planned and will be rescheduled.

Join us for a celebration of Corby's creativity as we stage a TAKEOVER of the Corby Cube

This FREE event is suitable for all ages and features drop-in craft and dance taster workshops as well as a showcase of creative work by local people. From exhibitions of visual art, creative writing and photography, to live performances of dance, spoken word, singing and more! And don't miss your chance to have a go at making sensory music with Eye Music Trust or getting your groove on at the silent disco with music through the decades!
