This story is over

The Wolds Arts Festival will bring the streets of Market Rasen and Caistor to life this weekend, with acts from some of the country’s most talented performers.

The festival will begin in Market Rasen at 5pm on Lincolnshire Day, which is celebrated every year on October 1.

The festival will then continue in Caistor at 5pm on Sunday, October 2.

The event is free and suitable for the whole family.


Still reeling from their performance at the Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony, Event FX will bring their brand of pyrotechnics to Market Rasen with a new show: Spontaneous Combustion.

Grammy nominated professional orchestra Sinfonia Viva will then join Event FX in Caistor on October 2.

Councillor Sheila Bibb, chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee at West Lindsey District Council, said: “This exciting festival is the first of its kind in West Lindsey.

“It will see these market towns come alive with vibrant, fun-filled performances for the whole family to enjoy. So come along and join in the experience.”

The festival is a partnership between the council and Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture.

Mark Humphreys, Managing Director at Magna Vitae, said: “We want The Wolds Arts Festival to inspire, intrigue and wow audiences at Market Rasen and Caistor, bringing performances the likes of which these towns haven’t showcased before.”
