CURRENT EVENTS

Barton Arts Festival

This year’s Barton Arts Festival, due to be held at the end of June, has been cancelled so the whole programme has been moved to 2021 but, sadly, without Tim Brooke-Taylor who has sadly passed.

These events, due to be held at the Wilderspin School Museum, will be rescheduled for next year:

Lincolnshire Life Art Exhibition

Ted Lewis Jazz Celebration

The Graham Saunders Lecture – Desert Island Discs Take 2

An American in Paris

Events at Wilderspin

All our events, and those of other organisations, which were scheduled to take place at the Wilderspin School Museum have been cancelled until the situation is clearer with respect to safe operation of activities and social distancing.
