Book now to dine out with the Trotters

This is the show you’ve all been asking for – and it’s brought to you by the people behind the worldwide smash hit, Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience.

Meet the pride of Peckham in a night of eating, wheeling and dealing at the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa. The fun starts from the moment audiences you the Trotters and their friends for a knees-up.

Book now for the Friday night – the Saturday show is fully booked.

Good News for Dambusters fans

After a decade of disappointments, Dambusters blogger Charles Foster is happy about the prospects of a new film based on James Holland’s 2012 book, Dam Busters: The Race to Smash the Dams 1943: “Director Peter Jackson’s recent announcement that he is pressing on with his project to remake The Dam Busters film has been widely welcomed. “It’s just a great story. It’s always been a great story,” he told the Daily Telegraph on Thursday. “But it’s an even greater story now than it was in 1955 because back then there was still so much of the story that was under The Official Secrets Act.”

Horncastle Christmas Market

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.
