Festive fun, seasonal silliness and merry mayhem in the Wolds this December
Festive Fabuloso is a creative community engagement project that will once again be taking place across five East Lindsey towns in the run up to Christmas.
With performances by local dance groups and choirs alongside street theatre, illuminations and lights as well as the amazing Fabuloso Organ and a silent disco, the event is designed to spread some seasonal joy and light across the Wolds!
This year the creative team are going to be working with a local dance group and a professional choreographer from The Hub in Sleaford to present Physical Fabuloso, a project that will see free dance workshops taking place in schools and community groups across the region in the run up to the 5 events. The aim is to teach as many people as possible a new simple dance routine to a festive track that will be played at each event at several times allowing lots of local people of all ages – maybe even the whole crowd – to join in!
Event Producer Simon Hollingworth Simon Hollingworth said "The Different Light Collective and Spilsby Sessions House are delighted to be working once again in the five East Lindsey towns of Alford, Horncastle, Louth, Spilsby, and Wainfleet. This project is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and we hope to bring festive cheer, creative community spirit and more than a little bit of silliness to these five wonderful towns in the run up to Christmas and we can't wait to see the dance routines by local people in each town too!"
