Hundreds gathered to watch Corby Business Academy students put on a spectacular pageant bringing to life the story of Corby’s charter.

The pupils told the tale of how Elizabeth I had an accident in woodland near Corby and was rescued by villagers. She later granted a charter to the village.

The play is from an original script by Elspeth Robb, written in 1947.
