Flickbook Theatre have successfully completed their first heritage performance Showcase, which was held in Louth. This coming weekend, they will be performing again, this time in Grantham. This will be a different performance, designed to reflect Grantham’s rich history and particularly the town’s strong female presence.
Join them in Grantham for a free performance, with free cake!
This performance is a culmination of six weeks of workshops. They have enjoyed immersing themselves in Grantham’s rich history and heritage with the help of local residents, who have also been keen to share what it means to be a real local.
Flickbook are performing at the Guildhall Arts Centre on Saturday 26 March at 6.30pm, telling their story of Grantham’s heritage.
Interested in performing? Have a view on heritage? Come and join in!
Coming up: workshops in four venues across Lincolnshire as part of the ‘Our Lincolnshire’ project. A series of six weekend workshops are planned in Grantham, Louth, Pinchbeck, and Gainsborough culminating in final performances in late March and early April.
Two theatre companies, Egg Box Theatre and Flickbook Theatre, will be working with volunteers across the county to develop and perform shows informed by what people from Lincolnshire think about heritage.
