A host of free events to raise awareness of a two-year, £2.6million arts project in South Holland are taking place this month.

Interactive singing, xylophone playing, an acoustic folk band and a touring mosaic artist are some of the highlights for the latest round of events linked to Transported, a project to get more people in South Holland and Boston involved in arts activities.

Since the project was launched in Holbeach on May Day bank holiday weekend, organisers of Transported have held a series of community consultations at events in Long Sutton, Spalding, Holbeach St Marks and Surfleet.

Programme director Nick Jones said: “The first month of Transported has been a very busy and interesting one for the whole team, moving from village to village and town to town so that people are aware of what it is.

“Since the launch, we have been rolling out events like Wrong Pong for young people, music pop-up events and theatre performances in new places.

“But the programme keeps getting bigger and as more people see Transported events, they are understanding what it’s about and what the opportunities are.”
