Tattershall Castle and Gunby Hall are currently both offering interesting events within easy traveling distance of Kirkby on Bain over the next few weeks.
At Lord Cromwell’s Castle in Tattershall this Wednesday (July 13) outdoor theatre company The Lord Chamberlain’s Men return with their outdoor performance of Much Ado About Nothing, and there’s a Wars of the Roses weekend on July 30 and 31: “Travel back in time to the fifteenth century and immerse yourself in our medieval experience. Witness what everyday life was like over 500 years ago with living history tents, talks and displays.”
Gunby Hall gardens are always worth a visit at this time of year, and they are the inspiration for Gunby’s first contemporary art exhibition called ‘Densen – Disperse’, featuring the work of Christiane Löhr. It’s open to visitors from 30 June to 4 September from 11am to 4pm, at the Orchard Gallery, in the Gunby gardens. There’s also a specially made video running in the stables to introduce the artist and her work.
You can dig into the history of the Gunby estate on July 23, Archaeology Day, and join in the annual celebration of the Gunby gardens on NGS Day, August 7, whilst raising money for the charities of the National Gardens Scheme.
