Storytelling and more in Grantham Guildhall programme
Film discussion, art and storytelling feature in the coming week in the online Guildhall Arts Centre programme.
The online offering – a joint venture between the arts centres in Grantham and Stamford – aims to provide entertainment while the coronavirus pandemic keeps the doors to arts centres closed.
It begins at 10.30am on Monday with Mini Mondays, hosted by Kirsty from Rhubarb Theatre. Storyteller Kirsty takes participants on a magical journey where they will be acting out characters and making associated crafts along the theme of the Gingerbread Man.

Barmpot Theatre has been commissioned to create a short film for children, which will be released on the Guildhall Arts Centre’s Facebook page on Wednesday.
‘To The Moon And Back’ is a beautiful and magical story for children, created using puppetry and original music, about a barn owl family living in Lincolnshire.
Barmpot Theatre is an award-winning theatre company, based in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds, which creates unique, imaginative and innovative theatre for everyone aged one to 100.
Combining its trademark style of physical performance, puppetry and original music, the team specialises in taking top quality theatre to rural communities, and telling untold Lincolnshire stories to a wider audience across the UK.
