Welcome to Kirton in Lindsey Diamond Jubilee Town Hall
KLIX - Kirton in Lindsey flicks!
The Town Hall now has it's own community cinema club. There will be monthly showings of films with one aimed at adults on a Saturday evening and another for a family audience on the following Sunday afternoon. The nature of the licence means that only members of the club can attend but it's easy to become a member and there is no charge. Give Hannah a ring on 07752 246255 for more information.
The Kirton in Lindsey Entertainment Organisation (KLEO) in conjunction with LIVELINCS has organised a special show:
Vamos Theatre: Nursing Lives
Friday 10th April 2015 at 7.30pm
This is a heart-warming wartime tale of bravery and love from the UK’s leading full mask theatre company.
The story... When Flo, a feisty seventy-something, learns that the hospital she trained at during the Second World War is being demolished, she decides to take one last look – and stop the bulldozers in their tracks.. Her illicit visit becomes a personal celebration of friendship, courage, adventure and romance. But is what Flo remembers really the truth, or is history ready to be re-written?
Nursing Lives is a love story set in the early 1980s of Thatcher’s Britain, and takes us back to the hard-working, heart-breaking, swing-dancing world of the UK’s wartime hospitals.
Like all Vamos Theatre shows, Nursing Lives is wordless, telling its story through physical communication, a strong visual design and an original soundtrack. This is a humorous and poignant production from one of the best of the UK’s full mask theatre companies
Nursing Lives is innovative, accessible, humorous and physical theatre, suitable for 12 years and up. The Guardian describes it as “an affecting, heartfelt production that’s funny and touching in turn” and BBC Radio Shropshire calls it “absolutely delightful. A big smile of a show, complete with singing pigs”.

“Paul delivers his stories with heart-warming honesty…Paul Richards constantly makes you smile – 4/5” Get Reading
“Paul’s show is engaging, witty and real. Refreshing, topical comedy that doesn’t involve audience participation or audience offending. We laughed all the way through and it made a long day at work feel like a distant memory.” – Penny (happy audience member)
Kirton in Lindsey Past & Present: Heritage Fun for All the Family
This year marks the 170th Anniversary of the SLHA (Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology) and (in partnership with Kirton in Lindsey Town Hall and the Kirton in Lindsey Society) they will be running a series of heritage-related activities over the next few months. There is a display of the work of the SLHA in the Heritage Room until the end of May. Alongside this there is a programme of family craft sessions, guided walks, vintage films and family fun and games – all with a heritage theme.
Details of the full programme is below:
KIRTON'S OWN 'STRICTLY'!
Ballroom dancing classes will finish at the end of April but the monthly Tea Dances carry on throughout the spring and summer so don't let the grass grow under your feet! Lessons will resume in the autumn.
Community Cafe closed
Unfortunately this facility has now closed due to lack of customers. It was originally trialled to support the revised Kirton Klipper timetable where people would be spending a lot more time in Kirton between buses but it has not proven to be needed. A big ‘thank you’ must go to the small band of volunteers who regularly turned up to provide refreshments. We may look to see if there is any merit in trying again in the summer and opening up the garden. Any feedback on this idea would be gratefully received.
