HOD – Voices from the past: Grantham heritage walks with Grantham Dramatic Society

10 September 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Part of the Lincolnshire HODs Festival 2023

A free Grantham walk that takes in some of the highlights of the town’s history. The 45-minute walk around the town centre is a real step back in time with costumed performers bringing colourful characters from Grantham’s past back to life.

Taking place on Sunday 10 September the walk covers some of the town’s richest history and includes Westgate, the Market Place, the Angel and Royal, Swinegate and Castlegate on its route.

Characters portrayed include Grantham’s first suffragette, Kings John and Richard III, Charles Dickens, King George IV’s mistress and, of course, Isaac Newton. Each one has something intriguing to reveal about their lives and the town’s past.

Walks are taking place on Sunday 10 September at 2.00pm, 2.30pm, 3.00pm and 3.30pm. Places on the walk are free, but places should be booked via www.heritagewalks.granthamdramaticsociety.co.uk

The heritage walks programme is funded by Historic England as part of the Heritage Action Zone funding delivered by South Kesteven District Council.
