Liberty UK Festival will be popping up in Corby on Saturday 19 February as part of a three-part tour across towns and cities in the UK. 

A series of fun, free and unique artworks and activities will take place across the town including 3 brand new performances that are being co-created with young people in Corby, Leicester and Halton including a performance of The Write to Rave by Debris Stevenson.

We invite you, your friends and families to join us. We want to fire up your imaginations about how we can work together to make a difference to things that matter most.

 

Liberty UK Festival is a celebration of freedom and democracy, which explores everyday activism and our collective power to make change. The festival is produced by Artreach in partnership with Made With Many and The Core at Corby Cube.
