Join in the fun and have your say!

Two free public open days are offering a unique opportunity for visitors to look inside the historic building and have their say on its possible future uses. 

There are timed tours every 45 minutes from 10am until 3pm where you will be able to enjoy live performance, drop in workshops and information stands, whilst giving your input into the future of Sessions House.

  • Experience the thrills and excitement of Vertical Dance Company performing aerial dance on the front of the building, suspended many metres above the ground! 
  • Visit the cells to see people whittling wood and listen to folk songs, as prisoners might have done in years gone by. 
  • Ascend to the dock before witnessing the dramatic performance by Egg Box Theatre in the courtroom, and tour the other rooms, including the waiting rooms and judge’s chamber. 
  • Take part in drop in workshops for Illuminate with artist Kathleen Smith, making pin badges, and Boston Unfurled (a forthcoming project with Boston Hanse Group) with artist Ruth Pigott from Curiosity Creators.

Also attending: Boston & South Holland Woodcarvers, the Hanse project, Illuminate, Ceramics Group, New Perspectives, accordian player Danny Pedlar and refreshments by Boston More in Common.

The arts and cultural activities have been curated by Transported as part of their remit to engage more people in the arts in Boston and South Holland. 

In partnership with Heritage Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire County Council and Paul & Amy Wilkinson (owners of the Sessions House)
