There be dragons…..

……at Tattershall Castle. Or at least there will be, on Saturday June 9th when you can make your very own pet dragon, take it with you on the Dragon Quest then enjoy watching The Reluctant Dragon presented by Quantum Theatre as the sun goes down. Details here

But if dragons are not your thing, or the date does not fit your plans, Tattershall has other events which reflect the history of the castle. From May 26th to 30th you can spend a day learning how archery helped put food on the medieval table, meet the Wolfshead Bowmen, hear about hunting techniques and test your skills with a longbow.

From the Woodhall Spa Noticeboards, May / June 2018

It’s a shame that Budgens have removed their noticeboard, but there are still plenty of events on the others, so here’s our selection for the month ahead. Take your pick: a trip to the BBC Gardener’s World and Good Food Show, a Big Band Night, a Banovallum Brass Concert, organ music at St. Peter’s or a good old car boot sale. Up to you!

 

May 15

This month’s visiting organist at Music for Woodhall will be Ryan Edwards. “Ryan’s continued popularity on the circuit could be a result of his fresh approach to organ playing which is reflected in the variety of styles of music in his concert programme. He understands the need to awaken new interest in the organ especially in his generation by appealing to both traditional and modern tastes.” He will be on stage at St Peter’s Church Hall, Woodhall Spa, 7.30pm. Contact Philip Groves 01526 353225. Website
