Irish Music Night to kick off a busy weekend
Caistor will be celebrating its Celtic connections on Friday (September 4, 2015) with an Irish-themed music night at The Settlement.
The night is likely to set the mood for a busy weekend in Caistor, with the annual Arts and Crafts Festival and the Eleven-Plus entrance examinations for the Grammar School also being held.
Friday’s Irish Music Night is a reflection on how many people in the town have a connection to the Emerald Isle. People are welcome to come and sing a song, play an instrument, do some Irish dancing, or just listen and enjoy the craic.
The event will be held in the garden at the rear of The Settlement if the weather is fine, or upstairs if the weather is not so good.
Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult, with the action starting at 7pm.
Meanwhile, on Saturday and Sunday, September 5 and 6, Caistor will be hosting its annual Arts and Crafts Festival at the Town Hall – an event that always attracts plenty of visitors.
As usual, entry to the festival will be free of charge. It will be open on both days between 10am and 4pm.
Besides the large art exhibition, there will be craft stalls and plant sales, live music and homemade refreshments, and the bar will be open.
Residents should be prepared for a greater demand for parking than usual in Caistor on Saturday, with the first of the Eleven-Plus days also being held at the Grammar School.
It is hoped there will be extra parking for the Grammar School at Caistor Sports Ground, via its entrance in North Kelsey Road.
