Churches set to feature in two new festivals

23 August 2017

As published in the latest issue of Crosslincs (September/October 2017), two new festivals will make their debut over the weekend of 9th and 10th September...


Horncastle Deanery gets set for new festival
Over the weekend of 9th and 10th September 2017, there is to be a new, open churches festival in Horncastle Deanery. Set to feature 36 historic buildings, the Horncastle & Villages Churches Festival Weekend is a free-entry event and it will include organ trails, flower displays, themed exhibitions and refreshments.

The weekend follows on from the great success of the West Lindsey Churches Festival (now in its 21st year), and members of the West Lindsey team are lending their expertise to this new venture.

Further information may be obtained by visiting, and printed brochures may be downloaded or are available upon request by sending an email (together with a postal address) to the organisers at (It is also possible to request a copy by calling the following number during office hours: 01673 84 38 52.)


Holland Places of Worship Festival
A new two-day-festival, also to be held on 9th and 10th September, will offer people a chance to visit some of the places of worship in the Holland area and enjoy further attractions, such as treasure hunts, exhibitions, places for quiet contemplation and concerts. 

A Holland Places of Worship Festival guidebook, which is available from participating churches, includes a map, details of where to find refreshments, forthcoming events and a competition. Further information is available now from the festival website, which may be found at
