Lincolnshire At Play

Playing in the stream

Saturday 8 November 10.30am - 3pm

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”
 But just how did the Lincolnshire Jack (& Jill) spend their leisure time?
From sporting challenges to tea on the lawn, a day at the races to a day at the sea, this is an exhibition of records that show just some of the many ways in which Lincolnshire people filled their leisure time in days gone by.
