Grantham is set for a colourful Christmas, with South Kesteven District confirming a range of events, Covid-19 restrictions willing.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Visitor Economy, Cllr Rosemary Trollope-Bellew, said: “We are happy to confirm we are planning for the Christmas lights switch-on, with a Christmas Market and funfair, in the Market Place and Westgate on 4 December.

“This will dovetail with a Christmas Market at Wyndham Park the day after. Arrangements for both are being finalised and barring a national lockdown or other Government restrictions, we are looking forward these events kick-starting the festive season for the people of Grantham and visitors to the town."

Looking further ahead, Coun Trollope-Bellew spoke of how the council is working on events and festivals for next year.

She continued: "No decisions have been made on the South Kesteven festivals programme for 2022 - although we can confirm that the Third Deepings Literary Festival will go ahead.

“Early discussions are taking place to consider options for the wider programme, including Gravity Fields, which will take account of Government guidance around COVID regulations."

“Our commitment to arts and events remains a priority and an event such as Gravity Fields will also depend on support, finance and grants from partner organisations, including Arts Council England and its funding priorities for the year ahead.”

The council statement came as both Belton House and Belvoir Castle also revealed details of their Christmas programme.

As Nub News revealed, Belvoir Castle has a regency theme this year, along with a magical light trail in its historic gardens.

And Belton House will also feature a glittering illuminated trail, as also previously reported.
