Join Boston Hanse Group in Boston Market Place for medieval fun to celebrate International Hanse Day! 

An amazing opportunity to join the group and get involved with Boston Unfurled, a new project between Boston Hanse Group and Transported to create flags and finials inspired by the town’s historic Hanseatic links.

International Hanseatic Day celebrates both the prosperous past and the exciting future opportunities that lie in the trading and cultural links between the towns and cities that make up the Hanseatic League.

Boston rejoined the Hanseatic League last year, after a 700-year absence. Boston was a warehousing site and trading partner with Hanseatic League countries in medieval times and owed much of its early prosperity to the trade it enjoyed from across the North Sea.

It joins 183 towns and cities including King’s Lynn, Kingston upon Hull, Aberdeen and other members from Belarus, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden in the Die Hanse, the modern-day Hanseatic League.


Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme which aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland enjoying and participating in arts activities.  The programme is overseen by the Centre of Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln, and is funded by the Creative People and Places fund from Arts Council England.
