Horncastle Christmas Market 2018

This annual market will be taking place on Sunday 9th December from 11 am to 4 pm. The High Street will be closed and lined with Christmas themed craft stalls, artisan manufacturers, and delicious food suppliers.

Musicians will perform for your entertainment and Father Christmas will be in his grotto, and the organisers are busy arranging amazing street entertainment.

“Colin Walsh is an English organist, who has played many recitals in various religious venues in England as well as two at the Royal Festival Hall. He has also played in many European countries and New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the USA. Some of his work has been released on the Priory label.

Since January 2003 he has been Organist Laureate of Lincoln Cathedral.” [BBC Music profile] Continue reading
