The recent Tier 3 rating for our area means that we will now be closed for most activities until 2021. This has been a year to forget for community buildings like the Town Hall where we have had to suffer the roller-coaster of lockdown, some activities returning, more lockdown and, finally, a high-risk infection rating removing any last vestige of hope that something can be salvaged in the run-up to Christmas. In this we are no different from many other small businesses and we share their pain and frustration.
This means that the wreath-making workshops and cocktail night cannot go ahead and Sharron (the Venue Manager) will be in touch with everyone who booked to make alternative arrangements or give a refund.
However, work continues in the background and Sharron can be contacted on: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07752 246255. Emails and mail will be monitored regularly and latest updates will be posted on Facebook and our website:
One activity which will continue is our ‘Waste Not Want Not’ grocery bags service from 11am to 12 noon on a Friday morning. We will be stopping on 18th December and restarting on 8th January.
This all seems very gloomy so, in an attempt to engender some festive spirit (and bring us a bit of income!), we are launching a Christmas raffle. First prize is a lovely hamper of Christmas goodies including goods donated by local businesses. Second prize is a beautiful handmade Christmas Wreath made by our very own Julia and the third prize is a 900g tin of Quality Street chocolates.

Finally, we wish everyone the Compliments of the Season and hope that you can make the best of whatever Christmas has to offer whilst staying safe and virus free. We have great hopes that, once the vaccination process is underway, we can all return to something resembling normality and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2021 as soon as it is safe to do so.
Who would have realised on March 7th that the Robbie Cavanagh concert would be our last of 2020. Unsurprisingly, the final concert of the year has gone the same way as the rest. Elles Bailey has been forced to postpone her Autumn Tour and we have rescheduled her 12th December date for the corresponding Saturday in 2021.
2020 has been such a difficult time for everyone, and we do hope that the Town Hall Live audience are well and will continue to be so.
The Coronavirus pandemic has been particularly bad for artists, whose only income comes from their music and being able to perform it. Many have made ends meet by playing live stream concerts. It is hoped that all will come through this and be able to play in front of audiences again.
Most of our cancelled concerts from the start of the epidemic have been rescheduled. There must be doubts, however that artists from Canada and America will be able to make it over in 2021.
Town Hall Live are lucky that we don’t have any overheads and that we will be able to start up again when it is viable to do so. Many venues are not so lucky and may well not survive, which again is worrying for the music industry as a whole.
It is hoped our first concert will be on February 20th when The Lauren Housley Band are booked to appear.
It is five months away. Fingers crossed that everything will be back to normal by then.
In the meantime stay safe and well.
There have been a number of changes inside the building to ensure that it is safe and meets with current Government guidelines. This includes a one-way system to the toilets and sanitisers at strategic points throughout the building. Social distancing requirements mean that we are only able to use the large hall upstairs and all activities will take place there.
The hall will probably look a bit different in arrangement and we ask everyone attending to observe the Covid safe guidelines. The ‘Rule of 6’ will apply to people attending all of our events so we cannot allow more than six people to sit together and we cannot allow groups to merge if they exceed six people.
Face coverings are now mandatory inside community buildings except when eating and drinking.
As long as everyone maintains all the social distancing rules, activities can continue. It remains a very difficult time for all of us but we are pleased that we can start to offer a range of activities for the community again.
This is a very difficult time for many of us but if you would like to help the Town Hall by making a small donation towards the upkeep of the building, you can easily send us small donations via PayPal using this donate button .
Simply click on the image then enter the amount you would like to donate and follow the instructions on screen. Thank you.
Kirton in Lindsey Town Hall is steeped in history and twice saved from the brink of demolition. Its story takes us from prison to pillar of the community and is probably unique. It has been at the centre of the community for over a hundred years hosting dances, auctions, parties and meetings and cuts an imposing view at the head of the Market Place. Our strapline says it all: Somewhere Special in the Heart of Lincolnshire. For more information about the Town Hall Story please see the History & Heritage page.
