Mary Hollingsworth: 01652 648435

The Town Hall, along with the Kirton in Lindsey Society, have developed a whole day of activity and family fun. There will be the chance to hear Lincolnshire traditional songs on the theme of Spring from Folk ‘Round ‘Ere; have refreshments to the sound of Medieval & Renaissance music; learn Tudor dancing with de Mowbray’s Musicke, hear instruments of the time and find out about life for a Tudor rural court musician. There will be Morris dancing outside, musician’s sessions and singarounds in the pubs and face painting in the Heritage Room. 

This is all leading up to the climax of the day which will be a concert by Passamezzo.  The performance will consist of ballads, lutesongs, consort music, madrigals, dance melodies and readings, and follows the season from the melting of the ice at the beginning of Spring, through maying, maypoles, hobby horses and feasting, to the sheepshearing and Whitsun holidays that mark the coming of Summer.
