It’s a summer of music at the Town Hall!
The Lincoln Waites
Friday 30th June, 7.00pm
The Kirton in Lindsey Society and the Kirton in Lindsey Entertainment Organisation (KLEO) have combined to bring a unique evening of mediaeval music and song. Waites were traditionally musicians of town mayors, as in Lincoln since at least 1398 until 1857 when Lincoln’s last Waite, Selby Dickinson, died.
However, Waites returned to Lincoln in 2007 when the Mayor of Lincoln’s Band of Music reformed to become the City of Lincoln Waites. Their music and costumes are set around the time of the Wars of the Roses (think Richard III and Henry VII) and they play a variety of instruments from sackbuts to small pipes and drums.
Tickets cost £10.00 / £8.00 concessions and those 16 and under free (must be accompanied by a paying adult). There will also be a bar, hot drinks and raffle. Tickets are available from Mary Hollingsworth on 01652 648435, email@example.com, Morrisons Daily (Market Place), or on the door.
Town Hall Live
The Two Pianos

Are you ready to experience the ultimate rock and roll concert? The Two Pianos usually play large theatres but now they are coming to Kirton. Dave Barton and Al Kilvo and their top-class band deliver the best piano experience you will ever see.

Al has toured nationally with Beautiful South, playing huge national venues. Tickets are priced at just £16.00.
Sunday 16th July, 1.00pm
This summer outdoor event started in a local garden during COVID restrictions has now grown into a fully-fledged festival of roots / Americana music. This will be an afternoon of great music at Klassic Park, Ings Road, Kirton (DN21 4BX) featuring four acts from California and the UK, each playing full sets.
First up will be The Sam Chase Trio from San Francisco. Sam Chase is a clever songsmith and a dazzling performer. He will be joined by Devon McClive (cello) and Chandra Johnson (violin). The trio blend epic arrangements with hard living songs with a dash of rock ‘n’ roll spirit.
Next is The Blue Highways, from London are brothers Callum, Theo and Jack Lury. They are one of the most up and coming bands in the country. They are known for their roots inspired rock sound and narrative story telling.
Following them is The Black Feathers – Sian Chandler and Ray Hughes. The pure emotion and subtle timing of their song delivery is as evident as the enjoyment radiating from their on-stage chemistry. They are mesmerising and stunning in equal measure.
Finally, headlining is The Sara Petite Band. Sara, from San Diego is a force of nature. Her music does not fit into one musical genre. She is gritty, she is wild, she is rocky, she is tender with the soul of a child. She and her band are stunning. The perfect way to end the festival.
Klassic Park has ample car parking. Bring your own chairs, food and drink and relax and enjoy over five hours of live music. Tickets are priced at just £25.00 and are on sale now. Gates are at 1.00pm and the music starts at 1.30pm.
