Corby’s entertainment scene is made up of a handful of great options, which present a diverse range of ways to spend an evening. The theatre at the Corby Cube is always welcoming excellent productions and comedy acts, while the Savoy always offers the crowd-pleasing option of a trip to the cinema.
Entertainment in Corby
The Savoy is one of the most popular places in Corby. It’s the town’s ultra-modern cinema on George Street. You can’t go wrong with a trip to the Savoy, where you can catch all the latest blockbusters. It also has an excellent programme of live event cinema, regularly showing Bolshoi Ballet, Royal Shakespeare Company and Metropolitan Opera productions. Tickets are very reasonably priced, the seats are comfy and the location is as convenient as it gets.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to see a production in person, make your way to the Corby Cube, next door to the Savoy. The Corby Cube is a very versatile venue. It contains the Corby Borough Council, the public library, and a state-of-the-art, three-tiered 450-seat theatre. It curates an excellent programme of theatre, ballet, opera, dance and comedy, and has previously welcomed the Northern Ballet Theatre and Sarah Millican. Check what’s on during your stay and be sure to book tickets well in advance as it’s the town’s top live entertainment venue.
Rooftop Arts Centre
If you’re a football fan and you need a fix, make your way to Steel Park to watch a Corby Town FC home game. The Steelmen have never graced the Football League, but that’s not to say the quality isn’t there. Take a look if any fixtures are on during your stay. After all, tickets are cheap and it’s a good way to spend an afternoon if you love the game.
When it comes to live music, your best option for catching a gig is The Core at Corby Cube. It often books high-quality tribute acts, which always provide excellent evening entertainment and cater to all kinds of music lovers.
It’s also well worth checking out the Rooftop Arts Centre in the Willow Place Shopping Centre. It’s a contemporary arts centre and the leading cultural hub in Corby dedicated to forwarding the creative arts in the community, and runs a jam-packed programme of exhibitions and events, while also offering studio spaces and workshops. It also hosts regular live music nights, including acoustic sessions and open mics.
