Many annual events which were cancelled due to the pandemic have been planned for later in the year - and it all starts this Bank Holiday weekend with the Chapel St Leonards Summer Family Festival.

The event taking place on the village green promises fun for all the family, including live music, tombola, craft stalls, children's entertainment, rides, and a firework display on the beach.

Bowling fans will be able to catch som action from the English Bowling Federation National Championships on the greens along North Parade until Saturday.

Then the action moves further up the coast the following weekend when Visit Lincs Coast presents the free Mablethorpe Music Mix Up Weekend.

Visitors will be bopping to the beat from 1pm on the High Street, with local vocalist Liam Maddison l kick-starting the event on Saturday September 4, covering songs from across the ages, followed by tributes to Cher, Pink, Little Mix and finishing with a fabulous tribute to the Killers.

Sunday will begin with a brilliant tribute to Amy Winehouse, following by tributes to Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry and UB40 ending with a grand finale cover of the one and only Queen!

A spokesperson for Visit Lincs Coast says, “this is a really exciting time for the Lincolnshire coast so introducing a new event in Mablethorpe could not have come at a better time."
