You are probably already aware that the 2018 festival is all ready to go. This year we have 61 events, some of those repeated so you don’t miss out, bringing you 66 events in total.
We are pleased to announce that the launch is at Harlaxton Manor near Grantham, with easy access from the A1/A607. Harlaxton Manor is not generally open to the public so we are very excited about this not-to-be-missed opportunity.
Refreshments will be available to purchase throughout the day.
There will be plenty to do for all the family, with house tours, garden tours, family garden trail and self-led walks in the woods.
For history buffs there will be two Millitary History tours covering both World Wars from the trenches of WW1 to operation Market Garden in WW2.
Heritage Lincolnshire will explain how they are tackling the subject of Heritage At Risk on a short tour of the Manor grounds.
For those looking for something more challenging, we haven’t forgotten you. We have a 10-11 mile ramble going out of the grounds, along the Viking Way to the Dirty Duck Pub on the banks of the Grantham Canal where refreshments can be purchased prior to returning to Harlaxton Village and Manor via the Canal.
There is also a shorter walk of 5 miles in the afternoon, leaving the morning free for the house and garden tours.
Please do join us, all events are free except the House Tours which cost only £2 per person. All we ask is for a donation towards the running costs of the festival.
