A programme of live performances is set to kick off in rural communities across East Lindsey as part of Lincolnshire Rural and Community Touring.

Starting on Thursday, September 25, the Autumn 2014 to Spring 2015 programme of events includes high quality professional drama, dance and music from the best in national and international touring companies and performers.

The events will provide something for all the family, say East Lindsey District Douncil at 13 venues across the District plus a further 29 across the county.

The programme is supported by Lincolnshire’s County and District Councils, Arts Council England and local volunteer promoters.

East Lindsey District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, Councillor Adam Grist, said: “We are pleased to be part of the Lincolnshire Rural and Community Touring programme. The number of venues we have taking part within East Lindsey again compared to neighbouring areas shows the wealth of talent and vast array of culture you can find here, something that we are immensely proud of.”

“The programme comes on the back of another hugely successful SO Festival and as we prepare to launch this year’s Wolds Words festival in October. These events all show that East Lindsey really has established itself as strong cultural destination with something for everyone to enjoy, he added.”

Performances in the District include My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding by Kali Theatre Company, The Creole Brothers in Concert, The Shannon Reilly Trio in Concert, and many more.
