5th – 7th October – Marton Gate Burton – Feast of Lanterns
Our FoL will be held this year at Marton Gate Burton nr Gainsborough. The theme will be “Book Comics and magazines”. I believe the theme gives a broad range to choose from, so please put on your thinking caps for a good night of memorable displays or even enter the spirit with just a few fairy lights to add to the occasion. Afterwards we can celebrate with a social in the village Hall on site.
Travel notice: Road closure for resurfacing until 6.00pm at Laugherton between Dunham Bridge and Torksey, so receommended alternative route is via Gainsborough.
