Live performances near Kirkby on Bain

Logo: Live & LocalI 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.

Here are two events I spotted in my [Lincolnshire] search: Continue reading

Willy Barrett’s French Connection

National Trust treats

national_trust_logo_green_150Tattershall 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. Continue reading

New deal for Lincolnshire children

We all want the best for our children and grandchildren, but sometimes opportunities for enriching their development are hard to come by in a county like Lincolnshire, especially outside our main towns. Fortunately, help is now at hand.

 

Last December over 50 cultural, arts and education professionals attended an event called “What if Every Child Could Fly in Lincolnshire?” at Lincoln Drill Hall to demonstrate their passion and enthusiasm in supporting all children and young people in the county in having the opportunity to experience great arts and culture. The event was so successful that a follow-up event is planned. Continue reading
