Spring into Spalding as popular event returns

South Holland District Council will soon host a special springtime town centre event in Spalding – and a celebrity visitor will be making an appearance too.

Thanks to an award of £6,000 from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the council’s Communities Team has been able to bring back the Spring into Spalding event which also took place in 2022.

On Saturday, March 30 from 10:30am to 2:30pm, there will be something for everyone at the free fun-filled day of festivities.

Visitors will be able to sample the delights on offer at the Spalding Outdoor Market, have some good old fashioned fun on the vintage swing boat ride, watch some wonderful live performances on the stage, create something beautiful in the spring time craft corner, meet Sleeping Beauty and watch her perform on stage and have a photo with Peter Rabbit and a giant daffodil stilt walker as they join in the fun.

If you’re still looking for something to do, why not plant your own spring time flower or make a mini beast hotel at the Nature Lab, have a laugh in the Comedy Maypole Workshop and get inside the giant blossom globe or have a free spring themed face paint creation.

A new addition for this year’s event will take place in the South Holland Centre where Council Chairman Andrew Woolf will be hosting a Bake Off competition – which will be judged by Matty Edgell who won the Great British Bake Off 2023. Further details of how to enter the competition will be released shortly.

But that isn’t all! There will also be an Easter Bonnet Competition to get involved in and several super cute bunnies to look out for in the Bunny Hunt trail around the town shops.

Additionally, Broad Street Methodist Church will also be open from 10:30am until 2:30pm on the day with free craft activities and refreshments.

Councillor Tracey Carter, South Holland District Council Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Communities and Facilities, said: “I am really excited to see the return of this fantastic event.

“We are so grateful for the UKSPF grant which has allowed us to put Spring into Spalding on again for the community, especially as the last event was so well received.

“I’m sure the businesses will get into the spirit of the day too as we encourage people to get into the town centre and shop locally on our wonderful high street and support our brilliant market traders.

“Above all, I hope that everyone comes along on the day to make sure this event is a real success and that they all have a great time.”
