Craft enthusiasts can try their hand at a number of workshops this year, including stained glass, wet felted landscapes, mosaic mirrors, willow weaving, paper making and felted woodland animals. Writers development courses by Andrew Graves, Anthony Cropper and Rennie Parker will help to develop writing skills.

Lincolnshire heritage will be celebrated with a host of events inspired by local towns. Lincolnshire Wolds Railway Society return to host “Louth, a Lincolnshire Railway Centre” and Alan Stennett will deliver an illustrated talk on the changing face of Lincolnshire farming.

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

David Willoughby, Magna Vitae’s organiser said: “Wolds Words Festival offers the local community a fantastic range of talks and events, and we are very pleased to be organising the festival again this year. We are also delighted to be able to promote such a wide variety of events that are being organised and delivered by community groups and organisations across East Lindsey”.
