Jean Cannon starts off this year’s programme of talks put together by the town’s Civic Society with a talk on Lincolnshire born drainage engineer, land surveyor and traveller.  Jean’s talk is based on Creassey’s works in England and Wales in the late 1700s and his travels in America and India based on extensive family history research.

The talk is being held at the Joseph Wright Hall on Queen Street on Friday, January 19, starting at 7.30pm.  Entrance is free to Civic Society members and costs just £2 for non-members.

At The Ropewalk 45 artists and makers, many of whom took part in Northern Lincolnshire’s Open Studios event held in September, will be lining the corridors of the quarter-mile long building.

There will also be a Cake Tombola, set up in the Artspace with money raised from the £1 tickets going towards the Ropery Hall extension fund.  Saturday will also see the opening of two new exhibitions, Christmas Craft in Gallery One and the annual Studio Artists Show in the Artspace.

The opening times for both days are 10am until 4pm and admission is free.

At Baysgarth House Museum  pop in for gifts from stalls selling luscious soaps, cakes, macrame, woodworking, knitted clothes, fun kids’ activities and more! As well as the craft stalls there will be a raffle and tombola, book sale, and the café will be selling cakes, hot fruit punch and hot chocolate.

The Christmas Fair runs from 10am until 3.30pm and once again entry is free.
