The celebrations will continue on 5th and 6th July with choral and opera performances, a comedy night, a range of workshops including painting and silver hammering, and a fun-filled Ceilidh.

“We’re so looking forward to the first-ever Welton Music and Arts Festival this summer, which will offer something for everyone - no matter what your age or interests.

“We love our village and, over the past 100 years, it has grown from a dispersed collection of farms and cottage industries to one of Lincolnshire’s best places to live with a strong sense of local identity.

“As it grows, we want to invest in the village’s social calendar and bring our community together, and the festival provides a fantastic opportunity to do this on a new scale.
