What is "Our Woods"?

"Trees and woods are at the base of everything, they support us on this planet. They give us clear air & water and support us through building material and fuel. They are at a basis of our existence, but they also give us joy, to look at, to wander in between. I enjoy observing their variety and graciousness and love walking." Rhoda Bertz – Our Woods artist from Germany.

Our Woods is a multi-event festival for everyone to celebrate, enjoy and dare to try something new in and around the woods of Corby.

Woodlands are a vital aspect of modern life, and in Corby we are uniquely fortunate to have these ancient woodlands at the heart of our town.

The woods keep us in touch with nature and our local environment. They are good for the soul. They are alive.

Our Woods will feature a huge range of friendly and welcoming events with something for everyone. There are over 40 of them – something for everyone!

Go on a discovery walk - make new connections through dance - climb trees – try printmaking – draw - listen to storytellers - hear the history of our woods - learn about mushrooms – enjoy music – take part … and much, much more.

These events lead up to a final performance Dreaming Our Woods at the Core on 5, 6, 7 May 2017 - an amazing light, sound and movement extravaganza. It’s not to be missed!

Our Woods is for everyone to enjoy, whether you live in or around Corby (or come from afar). I hope you will have fun looking at what’s on offer and will take part.

The Deep Roots Tall Trees team look forward to welcoming you.
