What a special event our Big Summer Night Out turned out to be – and so emotional.

I was very proud and it was such an honour to be among my fellow Corby residents that night. I was so happy to see people who told me they didn’t fancy the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra but bought a ticket, came along and loved it.

So here’s my chance to thank those people and everyone who supported Made in Corby’s launch event, especially Paul Glass, Steve Noble and all at Corby Town FC.

I’m excited to be telling you about what’s coming along next. In a couple of weeks, on the national Fun Palaces weekend, taking place on October 4 and 5, Made in Corby is running Big Days In.

Open to anyone and all ages, these are free, one-hour workshops at Danesholme Community Centre, Oakley Vale Community Centre and Stephenson Way Community Centre.

My first call is to artists living and working in Corby, interested in running an interactive workshop around any arts-based activity. Could be music, drama, photography, creative writing, painting – anything you like.

If you’re interested, email marie.murrie@groundwork.org.uk by September 25.

My second call is to you, Corby residents who asked for arts activities for anyone, in the heart of your communities. This is on your estate, for you, your family and friends.

Come along, see what’s happening, get stuck in.

Next month I’ll be letting you know about the Made in Corby passport – your chance to try different experiences and be rewarded!

Lastly here’s my arts pick this month. If you were one of those who thought classical music wasn’t your cup of tea, why not try something else? I’ve just seen the One Man, Two Guvnors show in London.

I loved it and it’s on at the Royal & Derngate in Northampton.

Go on, if you tried music, why not try theatre? You might find you like that too.
