Love Culture

Did you know that 17 August saw the start of #LoveCultureWeek across the UK? It’s a time to celebrate and visit cultural venues and marvel at what is on offer.  This week is aimed at highlighting some of the venues but our cultural sights are open all year of course so let’s get out (safely) to enjoy what’s on offer.

#LoveCultureWeek 

It’s time to celebrate by visiting the fantastic County museums, galleries, heritage sites and libraries to see what they have to offer. Please feel free to add in the ones that I’ve missed in the comments below.

#EnjoySummerSafely

I hope my list does it justice.  Apologies in advance to those that I’ve missed out but I’ll happily add a little mention for you if you contact me.  The new rules will inevitably apply so if you do want to pay a visit please make sure you book in advance and follow the safety rules.  Perhaps you can time your visit to coincide with the .Gov initiative #EatOutToHelpOut too.

Where To Start?

With a County as large as Lincolnshire its going to be impossible to cover every venue and location in one blog but perhaps a few choice mentions might give you some ideas and inspiration to make your own list.  After all, you don’t have to cram everything into just one week!

More To Come…

Lincolnshire is such a big County that it’ll be impossible to list everyone here.  With that in mind, I’ll post another blog or two with some more ideas from Grantham, Spalding, Skegness and Grimsby. Do let me know if you would like to be included.

Until next time, stay safe everyone,
