So What Are The Most Popular Events And Activities Leading Up to Christmas in Corby This Year?
Whether you are religious or not, if you haven't been captured by the festive spirit in Corby yet (and I don't mean the liquid type), you must have been wrapped up all warm at home and obviously haven't been down Corporation Street in the town centre recently!
The atmosphere is great and although I personally have my limitations when it comes to trying out the ice rink (no way!), it's good fun people watching, and I don't just mean the kids. (I'm trying to pluck up courage to conqueur the helter skelter!).
Of course Christmas time means different things to different people, but this is a magical time for children, and there's loads going on in Corby for all ages and faiths in the lead up to Christmas as I'm sure you've seen if you are following the 'Events' section of The Best of Corby website.
There are events ranging from 'Festive Bingo Lunches at The Holiday Inn' (steady on the sherry please!), 'Sunday Lunch with Santa' (also at the Holiday Inn); a great night of Motown with a live music and dance show at the Corby Cube; Laughing Boy Comedy Club (Christmas Special), and the Shapes Christmas Dance Show.
There are loads more events and offers to look out for on the bestof Corby website, and then of course it's suddenly Christmas Day, and if you celebrate Christmas, no doubt you'll overindulge again and soon be complaining that your favourite dress or suit has 'shrunk' in the wardrobe and it doesn't fit anymore!
Of course there is always a chance for some that the 'post Christmas blues' might set in!
Well no excuse this year!
The Dick Whittington panto starts on 29th December at the Core Theatre (Oh yes it does!), and if that doesn't re-light your fire within and get you chuckling, then nothing will!
OK, so you might be feeling a bit sluggish and carrying a few extra pounds after the big event, but there's help at hand for that too!
SWAP Activities in Darley Dale Rd, Corby is starting a new SWAP BodyCore Exercise programme, combining exercise with careful menu planning to encourage fast but safe weight loss. And with their new Vibrogym room, you'll have your own personal trainer to help restore your 'fabulous' body and fitness in no time!
NO JOINING FEES IN JANUARY! and booked sessions discounts are available. Go to the SWAP Activities web feature (scroll the page) and look for the ' New in 2012' section, and then give them a call. Don't forget, January is usually a fitness centre's busiest month as everybody's new year resolution is to "get fit and lose weight"! So book your place early or risk missing out.
Whatever you plan on doing leading up to Christmas, my tip is to HAVE FUN! - (you can usually repair the damage afterwards!).
But while celebrating the biggest birthday party, please don't forget to also spare a thought and offer an act of kindness this year to anyone you know who is spending Christmas alone or for whatever reason, is going through a particularly bad time.
