If you are looking to increase brand awareness of your business around Corby in Northamptonshire here are a couple of opportunities that could be of interest.

Corby Pole Fair Business Opportunities 2022
The team at Corby Pole Fair are offering businesses the chance to connect with around 30,000 people, whilst demonstrating their commitment to the local community, through sponsorship packages.

The Pole Fair is a major community celebration, which takes places in the Old Village area of Corby every 20 years. The next Corby Pole Fair will take place on Friday 3rd June 2022 across the Old Village area of Corby. This unique tradition comes around every 20 years, with the last Pole Fair last taking place in May 2002 on the Charter Field in Corby Old Village, attracting crowds of 30,000 to enjoy outdoor attractions, entertainment and of course, the reading of the Royal Charter at the three entrances to the village.

We are currently busy applying for a range of grants to support the fair, but there are many traditional aspects of the fair that these funds won’t support. So we are looking for local businesses to give back to the local community and support these activities, through financial contributions, in-kind support, staff volunteering or all three!

Activities we are seeking sponsorship for include:
Fireworks                        £10,000
Main Stage                      £5,000
Viking Camp                    £4,000
Greasy Pole                     £3,500
Big Breakfast                  £3,000
Jousting                           £3,000
Teddy Bear’s Picnic       £3,000
Floral arches                   £1,000 (x3)
Heritage boards            £500 each

Corby Bonfire Night Sponsorship Opportunities 21
And another event you can get involved with is Corby Bonfire night which will be held at Corby Boating Lake on Friday 5th November 2021.

This event is undoubtedly one of the best in the region; with approximately 33,000 attending, which says more in respect of its success than anything else that could be writte. The event is organised by North Northamptonshire Council, in partnership with Northamptonshire Police and Fire and Rescue Services.  The purpose is to give families and especially children a fantastic bonfire evening of fireworks in a safe and controlled environment thus reducing the pressure on emergency services around the beginning of November.

Sponsorship of the event is a minimum of £500.00 which includes your business logo on our leaflets which are distributed in the Borough, tagging your business into social media posts promoting the event and adding your business as a sponsor of the event.  A Corby Radio advertisement of the event is created for the 8 days leading up to the event and played regularly which includes all sponsors names.  In addition, Corby Radio will regularly announce the sponsors at the event.  All sponsors will have access to car parking at the event – limited to two cars and can join in the torch light procession.

Please contact lloyd.baines-davies@northnorthants.gov.uk / 01536 464072 if you would like more information or to be a sponsor, the deadline is Wednesday 6th October.
