Adrenaline Alley marked its 10-year anniversary with an urban art and sports festival at the weekend.
AlleyFest was a two-day extravaganza to mark 10 years since the alley moved to its current site in Priors Haw Road, Corby.
It opened its doors to people of all ages to celebrate the milestone, and also officially opened its new two-storey cafe and indoor plaza in Building 1.
The weekend included BMX, inline skating, scooter and skateboard competitions at professional level, public riding sessions, have-a-go coaching sessions, street art demonstrations, different DJs in each building and a silent disco.
Mandy Young, founder of Adrenaline Alley, said: “This festival is a real milestone for our family and the charity and puts Adrenaline Alley on the map for urban sports.
“It’s been an amazing journey and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved for our community over the past 10 years.
“So many people have benefited from the facilities: in particular local children have been able to enjoy sports and other activities in a safe, secure and social environment.
“Helping young people to stay on the straight and narrow has been particularly rewarding and it’s great to see them developing and gaining employment through volunteering and training.
“On September 17 it was six years since we lost our son and the festival will celebrate his life - had it not been for him Adrenaline Alley would not exist, it’s his legacy.”
