Corby Pole Fair is a traditional and long lasting part of Corby’s heritage, held every 20 years. Culture Syndicates worked closely with Corby Heritage Centre to produce an interactive pop up exhibition on the history and future of the fair.
This raised the profile of the centre amongst non-users, engaging them with a simple but effective interactive exhibition. This exhibition kick started their new strategic programme of engagement activities based on the Corby Pole Fair in Corby town centre.
As a result of this exhibition, the heritage centre was made more accessible to audiences previously considered as non-users. The heritage centre now has more visitors, and, following a full store management project with Culture Syndicates, has achieved Arts Council England Accreditation status.
