Corby Pole Fair 2022

Corby Pole Fair is a major community celebration, showcasing the rich history of Corby that will take place on Friday 3rd June 2022 during the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday, made possible this year thanks to National Lottery players, through a generous grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. This unique tradition comes around every 20 years, attracting large crowds to enjoy Pole Fair traditions, including dawn charter readings, floral arches, the stocks, stang, ox roast, greasy pole competition and this year, a new heritage trail too.

Other highlights include a teddy bear’s picnic, children’s entertainers, storytelling, walkabout acts, a fancy dress parade led by giant puppets, jousting and skateboarding displays, a Viking encampment and a modern ceilidh for a proper knees up! You can also enjoy a funfair, market and model railway as well as a streetfood area with music, bands DJs and dancing til late.
