Wolds Words Festival returns with over 50 events

/ Culture

THERE is just one month to go before the annual autumn festival of craft, heritage, literature and performance returns. Magna Vitae have once again organised an action packed programme for all to enjoy.

Throughout October, the Wolds Words Festival is coming to Alford, Horncastle, Louth, Spilsby & surrounding areas with something for everyone.

Dan Powell, Stuart Gibbon and Anthony Cropper will be helping to develop writing skills with writers development courses, and new skills can be learned in the stained glass workshops using traditional techniques through to willow weaving and mosaics.

Lincolnshire heritage is celebrated with a host of events inspired by the local towns. Lincolnshire Film Archive is hosting ‘Local History on Film’, Stuart Sizer is delivering an interesting talk on the Secrets of St James Church and Peter Banks presents a fascinating talk on the International Bomber Command project and photographs of the bombing raids.

Rhubarb Theatre will be bringing exciting family entertainment, with an interactive storytelling and craft workshop surrounding Roald Dahl’s The Enormous Crocodile and an exciting new theatre show Granny’s Game.

These are just a few of the wonderful events and workshops taking place for the Wolds Words Festival.

David Willoughby, Magna Vitae’s organiser said; “We are pleased to be organising this fantastic festival again this year. We are also delighted to promote a wide variety of events organised and delivered by community groups and organisations across East Lindsey”.
