Organisers expect thousands will attend this year's Corby Mardi Gras.

The family-centred festival of light and sound is being held in the town again - centred on the central woodlands - on Saturday March 30th.

Behind the event are arts collective Made in Corby who are working with Leicester-based Art Reach on producing the event - which features illuminations, music, street theatre and sculptures.

A series of workshops for the public are planned before the big day so people can have an input into how the event develops.

Made in Corby say this year's Mardi Gras should be the biggest yet with extra funding from Arts Council England.
