This Novembers Farmers’ and Craft Market will take place on Remembrance Day (Saturday 11 November), where we will remember the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Farmers’ and Craft Market will take place from 9am to 2pm in the Market Place, where there will be a Poppy Collection and Appeal by the Royal British Legion alongside Last Post and Reveille at 11am.

They will be joined by the Lah Di Dahs, a 1940’s and vintage close harmony trio, soprano, alto and mezzo. They are based in the East Midlands with a passion for keeping alive the songs of the past!

Bridget from the Lah Di Dahs 1940’s Vintage Trio said: “We will be at the Farmer’s and Craft Market as part of the Poppy Collection Day event, where we will be performing some 1940’s and wartime songs and taking part in a short ceremony of remembrance. It’s important that we remember our servicemen past and present and highlight their sacrifice for future generations and we are very pleased to be involved.”

  • There will also be a poppy wall of remembrance where people can craft their own poppy and add a message.
  • Vintage vehicles will be on display alongside a 20th Century Living History Group re-enacting drills.
  • Vintage stalls will be joining our usual traders offering the best in local, fresh, homemade and handmade produce.
The Vegan Corner will return this November!

The Vegan Market traders from Rainbow Monkey Events will be joining us once again this November. Can you take on the egg challenge?

Nicola Marshall, Town’s Centre Manager at West Lindsey District Council said: “This Farmers and Craft Market is a special day where we will remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving for their country. Join us to honour the members of the armed forces as we are joined by the Royal British Legion and friends.”

Entertainment will finish by 2pm at the latest. PLEASE NOTE, all events are outdoors and may not take place in bad weather. You can visit our events page or social media for exact times to avoid disappointment.
