Children and adults will enjoy the exciting FREE activities at this summer’s Family Fun Fridays!


Folk Faeries!

Look out the Faeries are on the loose! Set free from the magical midnight faery kingdom and they’re looking for some fun and mischief, can you spot the Folk Faeries as they tumble and dash about?

Having escaped the faery realm the Folk Faeries are feeling curiously brave, what wonders will they discover as they explore, what stories can you tell them, what tricks can you share?

Join the Faeries as they delight and entrance with their mischievous behaviour  but remember not all that they say is true… and if you’re not careful they’ll make a faery of you too!

The faeries will be popping up around Boston marketplace throughout the day…

Watch out for the folk faeries spreading mischief around Boston market place!

Woodcarving with Peter Tree!

Create a beautiful hand carving to take away!

Following the success of the beautiful wood carvings created by the Witham woodcarving group, Transported have invited Peter Tree to host an open wood carving workshop at Family Fun Friday.

Peter will assist in another round of woodcaving workshops with the Witham Woods group this autumn so now is the ideal time to come along and have a go!

No previous experience necessary. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Suitable for ages 12+

Hundreds of people have been drawn in by the free, fun and inspiring performances and workshops in Boston Market Place since Family Fun Fridays were created in 2014.

The popular programme has been organised by Transported in partnership with Boston Borough Council to provide free activities to families during the school holidays.

Here are just a few of your lovely comments from last year’s Family Fun Fridays…

‘Thanks for providing these fun activities and events!’
‘Always excellent’
‘Thank you very much. I really enjoyed it – and my children did too! ‘
‘Everybody had a smile on their faces’

Family Fun Fridays are free for everyone. Any donations are welcome and will be used to support future Transported activities.  


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.
