Wolds Words Festival 2016

wolds_words_2016_150The Wolds Words Festival is back again in October, celebrating the rich, diverse and unique culture of rural Lincolnshire. This year Horncastle features for the first time, joining the traditional venues in Louth, Spilsby and Alford.


In Horncastle the Community Cinema Club offers film screenings in the Stanhope Hall on 19th October and 23rd November. For the details visit their website or email thestanhopehall@hotmail.uk.  The club is operated for the benefit of the community by a small dedicated team of volunteers who aim to show a wide range of films. Tickets are available from The Horncastle Music Shop or on the door.

Elsewhere in East Lindsey you can develop your writing skills with writers development courses or learn a new skill by joining one of the craft workshops on offer, from stained glass, wet felted poppy brooches, mosaics or felted wreath, to willow weaving. And if you are interested in Lincolnshire’s heritage then you can enjoy some of the many events inspired by our local towns.

Lincolnshire Film Archive are back hosting “Local History on Film”, or there’s an interesting talk on the Secrets of St. James. Discover the history of the Lincolnshire railway lines and the 1/5th Battalion Lincolnshire Regiment. Peter Banks presents a fascinating talk on the International Bomber Command project with photographs of the bombing raids.

Alternative events include drama and comedy at the Playgoers Riverhead Theatre in Louth and a range of workshops run by community groups across East Lindsey.
