I recently came across a website called “Live & Local” which could be useful to anyone living or staying in or near Kirkby on Bain who likes live performances. Here’s a link to the “What’s On” page, but be warned, you will be in for some tricky navigation because the site is really a search engine.
Having tried it myself, the quickest route to local gigs from the “What’s On” page, is: select [Search by County], then [Lincolnshire]. Finally, to see the list of events, click on the [List Shows] button! For a narrower search choose [Search by district] then select either [East Lindsey] or another district such as [North Kesteven]
Lincolnshire Sausages, famous Lincolnshire people and a Sci-fi show – an eclectic selection of attractions in the historic City of Lincoln over the coming weekend:

Feeling hungry?
Well done to those who braved the elements to cycle from church to church this year in aid of the Lincolnshire Churches’ Trust.Despite the rain and wind they raised a grand total of £590, up on last year’s total. Thanks go to all the riders and their sponsors.
And an innovation too, as John Dudley recorded the event on video:

Launched this weekend from the pretty village of Donington-on-Bain we can promise you sixteen days of really good walking in and around the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, until our festival finale at Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens National Trust property on 5 June.
We’ve got 113 great walks in the pipeline for this year’s festival, ranging from energetic day-long rambles to gentle strolls, plus lots of activities to involve all the family. Our event is 12 years old this year, but we’ve still got new and interesting walks to offer, as well as some old favourites.
