I’m looking forward to meeting other Dams Raid aficionados this coming Tuesday, 10 July, at two events in Lincoln.The first is at 3pm in the International Bomber Command Centre, Canwick Hill. The second is at 6pm in Waterstone’s Bookshop, High Street. At both events I will be talking about the research that went into my new book, The Complete Dambusters, and also signing copies.

Ride the Tiger Moth trail

The Petwood Hotel is the proud sponsor of this 55-mile cycling and walking trail, just one of eight on offer around the city of Lincoln and surrounding countryside commemorating 100 years of the RAF and the close association that Lincoln and Lincolnshire has with aviation. It’s part of Visit Lincoln’s 100 Voices initiative, which tells the story of the RAF through the people who have experienced it, both men and women, in military and civilian roles. The 100 Voices are presented on “Wings” placed in a hundred Lincoln and Lincolnshire locations that have an association with the RAF.

This circular trail starts in Lincoln and brings you via the Water Rail Way to the Woodhall Spa wing near the war memorial, only a short ride or walk to The Petwood, where you can experience the famous “Dambusters” 617 Squadron Officers’ Mess.         Continue reading

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. Details here                 Continue reading

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.
