Festive Fabuloso: Madcap musical machine is coming to a town near you
Readers may recall a feature we ran on ‘madcap’ Lincolnshire inventor David Cranmer - who has created the interactive sound sculpture for the festival.
The sculpture has been crafted from recycled parts of Spilsby Theatre’s disused church organ, which promises to delight, surprise, amuse and astound.
Mr Cranmer said: “The sculpture is interactive - members of the public are invited to press the 74 buttons and use the four joysticks to create a variety of sounds, ranging from fairground pipe organ music to crazy sound effects. There is also a dancing owl.
“We took it to Spilsby town centre this morning and people seemed to enjoy playing it!”
The council is working with Different Light and Spilsby Sessions House as part of their Vital and Viable programme.
The festival is in Spilsby today (Wednesday), from 9.30am to 2pm.
It will then be in Louth tomorrow (Thursday), 9.30am to 2pm; Horncastle on Friday, from 9.30pm to 2pm, Wainfleet on Saturday, from 12noon to 4pm, and Alford on Sunday, from 9.30am to 2pm.
A spokesman for the festical said: “Then on the following five dates we will return with our Musical Machine and some street entertainers during the day, and then in the evenings we will also light up the towns and show the animated film featuring everyone’s artwork!”
