Kirton In Lindsey Town Hall

As school starts again, the days shorten and holidays are a distant memory, Kirton in Lindsey Town Hall gets back into full swing and there is an exciting programme of autumn into winter activities:

  • Saturday 2nd September
    Kirton in Lindsey Amateur Gardeners (KLAGs) Annual Show
    The amateur gardening club’s annual flower and produce extravaganza.
  • Tuesday 19th September, 6.30pm
    Town Hall Annual General Meeting
    This is an important date in the governance of the Town Hall when the charity trustees give their reports for the year and the residents of Kirton can come and ask questions. It is also an opportunity to find out more about how the Town Hall is run. We would love to see you there.
  • Sunday 1st October, 10.00am to 4.00pm
    Lincolnshire Day Celebrations for the whole family
    This is our major celebration of the history and heritage of our area. There will be stalls, displays, talks, a heritage walk, family events and lots more. There will also be Lincolnshire-sourced refreshments such as: Ploughman’s; hot dogs; and plum bread. There will also be a raffle for a Lincolnshire themed food hamper. We anticipate that the talks and walk will be very popular so do make sure you book in advance rather than leave it to chance on the day. All the details and booking form are on the Town Hall’s website.
  • Tuesday 3rd October, 7.00pm
    ‘The Big Sing’ with the Singing for Pleasure Choir
    The Singing for Pleasure Choir love singing (as the name suggests!) and love performing their concerts in the Town Hall. The audience also seem to like joining in so this is an opportunity to come along and sing just for the fun of it. You don’t have to be able to read music or sing in a formal way, it’s much more about making noise and enjoying exercising those lungs! Wherever you sing now — the shower, the football stadium, the car; this is an opportunity do it with others in a friendly, informal setting with no pressure to perform. Singing is supposed to release endorphins (the body’s natural feel-good hormones) so come along and give it a try. Entrance is free with refreshments and a bar available. If you want more information, contact Jenny Cripps on 07902 010898.
  • Friday 6th October, 5.00pm to 9.00pm and Saturday 7th October, 9.30am to 3.00pm
    Annual Art Exhibition
    We are ‘going arty’ again for our 6th Annual Art Exhibition. The exhibition will showcase a range of artistic techniques including painting, pottery and glass craft and there will be opportunities to buy. Local artists, and some from further afield, display up to four paintings in any medium. Each year has been a bit different, with some regular exhibitors and some new ones each time. The standard is very high and we get quite a few sales. There will be a licensed bar, teas and coffees and snacks available. Admission is free, catalogues are £1 and all proceeds go to support the Town Hall charity. If you are an artist and would like to know more about exhibiting, contact Pat for more information on pat.frankish@btinternet.com.
