The Core at Corby Cube

Tickets 01536 470 470 www.thecorecorby.com


Welcome It is eight years since The Core first put out a programme of events to its local audience and what a journey it has been. Some 300,000 people have passed through the doors of the theatre and enjoyed a fantastic array of performances and events, both home grown and from afar. I am delighted to have arrived in Corby from Dublin to take my place as the third Director of this remarkable venue and excited for what the future holds in store. As the nights draw in and there’s nothing but rubbish on the telly, I hope that within this brochure you find something to attract you to the bright lights of this incredible theatre to see a show. For the theatre lovers, we look forward to welcoming Private Peaceful direct from the West End as well as our heavily anticipated family Christmas show Beauty And The Beast which comes to Corby after a run in New York. Music lovers will need to book soon for Steeleye Span, Les McKeowns Bay City Rollers and of course the ever popular Fisher Stevens’ Elvis In Vegas show. For the jokers and comedy fiends, we welcome Sara Pascoe in November as well as the side splittingly funny crew from Screaming Blue Murder Comedy Club with dates throughout the season. Finally, two really special treats for families will be Guess How Much I Love You in October and the family rave by Big Fish Little Fish in November. The doors of the theatre are open. We look forward to seeing you here soon. Joe Flavin, Director, The Core at Corby Cube
