The concert by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Corby this month will be a boost for Corby Town Football Club and local businesses.
It is being staged at The Steelmen’s ground on Saturday, August 23, for a 1,000-strong audience.
The concert will launch the £1m Made in Corby three-year arts programme and when the gates open at 5.30pm there will be plenty of fun on offer before the music starts at 7.30pm.
Haddon’s butchers in The Jamb in Corby Old Village is putting on a hog roast and beer will be provided by local micro-brewery Latimer Ales of Oakley Hay.
Corby Town will be running a Pimms tent and there will also be a wine bar and paella stall.
Chairman of Corby Town Steve Noble said: “Within five minutes of hearing about the concert I was hooked. “We are already reaping the benefit of offering the ground as a venue.
“Other companies who are involved are also enjoying a boost. Many of our business sponsors will be coming along.
“The ground is a fantastic venue and this concert will put Corby on the map. We will be supporting Made in Corby throughout the three-year programme.”
Tickets for the concert are £15 and £5 for under 16s, students, jobseekers and the disabled.
