» Festival Fun Day

Lakelands are once again organising the Festival Fun Day and Festival launch at East Carlton Park on Monday 29th - it promises to be bigger and better than ever.  Details here and here as plans for the day develop. Click here for a report and photos of the 2014 event.





The Festival is changing its look and becoming Corby Outdoors Festival for 2016, after making some exciting new links with the Corby Cycle Fest event.

Don’t worry, for all of you who enjoy your walking, we will still be retaining the  walking programme as an important part of the Festival, with  walks  already being planned to take in some of North Northamptonshire’s most  scenic views and picturesque villages, such as Cottingham, Middleton, the Lyveden Way (near the National Trust  site Lyveden New Bield), Gretton and Harringworth.
The 34 mile Around Corby route will also be back in 2016 as a new challenge – watch this space!
In addition for 2016 we are organising fun family cycling and arts events, all of which will celebrate getting active, being outdoors and enjoying some of Corby borough’s loveliest countryside, as well as the town’s amazing woodland areas, whatever the weather.
And we will still be launching the Festival with the ever popular Lakelands Festival Family Fun Day & Dog Show on Monday 30 May at East Carlton Country Park, courtesy of the Festival’s beneficiary charity, Lakelands Day Care Hospice.

For those of you who enjoy your cycling, visit the Corby Borough Council website for regular updates on the Corby Cycle Fest event, which takes place on ?????????????? outside the Corby Cube.





PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY NOW! The next Festival takes place 29th May - 4th June 2017.  Watch this page for further news on the walk programme as it is developed.

                                                      AGAIN FOR 2017 - UNLED WALK ROUTES.  WOODLAND TRAILS IN CORBY

Three attractive walks have been developed by Corby Borough Council for local people to enjoy at Hazel & Thoroughsale Woods in the heart of Corby. These walks are unled so you can choose to enjoy these routes at your  own convenience.  These ancient woods provide a great place to visit, while linking back to the history of the Rockingham Forest. Volunteers work all year round to help maintain and manage these woodlands. Look out for wild flowers, butterflies and other wildlife  such as birds like the Nuthatch and the elusive Jay! Afterwards, you can  enjoy a cuppa and something to eat at Corby Boating Lake Café.
Full details on these three walks here.
