Not since the Olympic Torch came through Holbeach has the town seen a day like as between 2,000 and 3,000 people invaded Carter’s Park for the launch of Transported.

The £2.6 million two-and-a-half year project to take art to the masses was launched in memorable fashion on Sunday with an afternoon of aerial acrobatics, street dancing, Polish choir singing and a walk-in luminarium.
