A much loved fable has been re-imagined as a ballet and is coming to The Core at Corby Cube.

Northern Ballet presents Tortoise and the Hare on Tuesday with performances at 11am, 2pm and 4pm.

It sees Aesop’s fable of a tortoise who, tired of being teased for his slowness, challenges a speedy hare to a race. The show lasts 40 minutes and has been created especially for children.

It is recommended for children from 18 months upwards. Tickets are £8.50 with concessions at £6.50, and can be booked at or by calling 01536 470470.
