Kirton in Lindsey Society

by | 19 June 2022 | Gainsborough, Heritage

The Kirton in Lindsey Society’s season of indoor meetings continues Tuesday 28th June at 7.30pm, in the Town Hall, Market Place, Kirton in Lindsey.

Ruairidh Grieig, local folklorist, tells the story of The Plough Jag Plays. These were a tradition in the East Midlands. On the first Monday in January, local agricultural workers would drag a plough around the neighbourhood, dress up and sing songs in return for money, food or drink. The practice died out during the late nineteenth to early twentieth century. Some villages hung on to their traditions and they have been revived in recent years.

The Society has outings coming up on 23rd July (a visit to Wrawby Post Mill) and on 14th August (a visit to International Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln).

The new season of indoor talks start on Tuesday 27th September with a Kirton Miscellany presentation.
