There is something for everyone this spring at The Core at Corby Cube with a line-up of music, comedy and drama.

Highlights include music from Irish country star Nathan Carter on Sunday, March 8, and X-Factor winner Joe McElderry on Thursday, March 12, plus a return visit from Corby favourite Barb Jungr.

There is drama from two award-winning companies Theatre Ad Infinitum and The Paper Birds, and the smash-hit adaptation of children’s favourite The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

Also performing at the theatre is John Challis, better known as Boycie from Only Fools and Horses.

The Only Way is Boycie is at the theatre on Friday, March 6, when Mr Challis will reveal secrets from the set along with other stories and anecdotes from his career.

The theatre will also host some of the best acts on the tribute scene, with Let’s Twist Again celebrating the greatest hits of Elvis, Dusty, Buddy, The Beatles and many more on Friday, January 30. Motown fans will enjoy How Sweet It Is on Thursday, February 26, and Hats Off To Led Zeppelin will return on Friday, February 6, with their celebration of one of the biggest rock bands in the world.

Following a smash-hit West End season, there is a chance to see The Tiger Who Came To Tea on Friday and Saturday, April 3 and 4.

The children’s play is based on the well-loved book by Judith Kerr and adapted by David Wood into a stage show packed with magic, sing-a-long songs and tea-time chaos.

Multi-award-winning Theatre Ad Infinitum present their Edinburgh hit, Light, on Tuesday, February 3. Inspired by Edward Snowden’s revelations and the ensuing debate about state surveillance, audiences are taken to a future where the thoughts of citizens are monitored.

In Broke, on Tuesday, February 24, award-winning company The Paper Birds explore what it is to be broke, with a visually stunning new production that draws on real-life stories from the front line of poverty and debt.
