Community celebration of Sutton-on-Sea history to take place

A free celebration of Sutton-on-Sea’s rich history and culture is set to take place this June, as part of the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership’s Arts Council England NPO project.

Vintage-on-Sea, which has been put together in collaboration with community groups and representatives, will take place on Saturday 29 June, from 10am to 4pm, with a variety of different acts and entertainment including singers, bands, dance groups, magicians and more.

A market will take place on the day, with over 30 different stalls for people to explore and enjoy including vintage items, food and drink and games and activities. A series of craft workshops will also be available giving people the opportunity to create their own miniature seaside windmills to take home with them, as well as face painting and lots more family-friendly fun.

As part of the entertainment High Tea [with a twist], from Levantes Dance Theatre in London, will be performing, and are currently looking for six volunteer dancers (split into three couples) who will work together to create something memorable before and during the show. The volunteers will get to wear a bespoke costume and be part of both digital and in-person rehearsals.

Individuals interested in this opportunity will need to email Samantha Benson at by Saturday 18 May, and should be able to commit to sessions to practice in the run-up to the event, including a free taster session to decide upon the six dancers on Saturday 25 May, from 2pm to 5pm at the Meridian Leisure Centre in Louth.

As well as Vintage-on-Sea there are a host of other events taking place across the summer in Sutton-on-Sea, including a large-scale group sand drawing activity on the beach on Saturday 22 June.

Councillor Craig Leyland, Leader at East Lindsey District Council, said: “It’s really exciting to have such a wide variety of activities available for our residents in Sutton-on-Sea across the summer months, which I’m sure will provide a lot of fun and entertainment, as well as an educational experience to learn about the history and geography of the area.

“There is a great programme of work and events planned through the NPO programme across East Lindsey and South and East Lincolnshire, and I am delighted that Sutton-on-Sea can be such a hub for these activities whilst the new Colonnade is built.”
