News and events Events Horncastle's 4th Arts and Music Festival There is a packed timetable of performances over the course of the festival. The full schedule can be found below and on a pdf here. The festival will open on Thursday 16th May with a concert by Octangle, an eight person male voice choir. Saturday is family day with five hours of live music and entertainment. Everyone is invited to come along and create a piece of bunting and to contribute to the 'Four Seasons' Wall art. To end the afternoon there will be the 'Big Sing' where everyone is invited to come along and join in. This year the songs will be a selection of popular tunes, all of them easy to sing, and finishing off with 'My Grandfather's Clock'. The church will be decorated with over 600 piece of artwork, most of them created by the pupils from one of the four local schools. There will also be an opportunity for pupils at the schools to showcase their talents - creative writing and a musical concert from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School; Drama workshop and a jazz performance from Banovallum School, a drama sketch from pupils of St Lawrence School and the ever popular sing-a-long from the primary school children. There will be concerts by the Lyndsey Quartet and Horncastle Choral Society as well as many open practise sessions by other choirs, orchestras and bands. To finish the week, on Thursday 23rd May at 7.30pm, we have a surprise quintet making their first ever appearance at Horncastle so do come along to see them. Booking for this event has now closed.
