Organisers of this year’s Boston Showcase are promising what they call a ‘treasure trove of treats’ to visitors.

Attractions at next month’s event will include live bands, performers on a dance stage – and a fly-over by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Co-organiser of the event, Boston Mayflower’s Nathan Black, said: “The attractions we have in store are extremely varied – that’s what makes the event so special.

“One minute you could be listening to a live band, then watching dancers on the dance stage, followed by learning some handy help and advice from a local community group.”

He added: “The Showcase really is a great way to give the people who form Boston’s community a platform from which to promote their services.”

Showcase, which has established itself as the largest premier event in the town’s calendar, offers free entry and many free activities.

It will take place on Sunday, September 8, in Central Park, from 10am-4pm.

Also on offer will be bouncy castles, low-cost food prepared by North Sea Camp, and more than 130 stalls hosted by local community and voluntary groups.

The event was originally conceived by Boston Mayflower, Lincolnshire CVS and Boston Borough Council eight years ago.
