Events planned for new-look town centre

PLANS are afoot to bring Boston’s Market Place alive when it is officially re-opened later this month.

The £2 million refurbishment project on the historic space has meant that the market has been taking place in Wide Bargate since last July.

But come Wednesday, May 16, the stalls will move back to their rightful home – and the traders are planning to celebrate in style.

On that Saturday, stall-holders have organised for music and street entertainers to keep shoppers going during the day.

The following day visitors will be able to enjoy a free medieval fair celebrating the town’s history.

The Knights of Skirbeck will be joined by Tudor re-enactors to entertain the crowds, stalls will be selling medieval goods and there will be a variety of entertainment.

The Guildhall and Hussey Tower will also be open to visitors.

l During the May Fair a reduced market will be moved to Pump Square. On May 5, 9 and 12, 20 stalls will be set up in that space.
