"We are looking for anyone from established choir groups, local bands and dance troupes to up-and-coming young singer-songwriters to volunteer to showcase their talent.

"Grow 2020 is inspired by the theme of light and Corby’s town centre, The Core at Corby Cube and other indoor locations will this year be illuminated with extraordinary performances, magical installations and spectacular art throughout the festival."

Next year's festival is the third in the series of Grow Festival's series of outdoor events, commissioned by Made in Corby, as part of The Creative People and Places programme funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery, and co-produced with The Core at Corby Cube.

Marian added: "We're looking to hear from performers, choirs, bands, poets dance troupes who can do a set that a family audience would enjoy."
