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

Join Rhubarb Theatre for Explorers Galorers!

Three intrepid travellers set off on a wild race around the world!

Following in the footsteps of the great globetrotter, Phileas Fogg, our bold explorers laugh, sing and dance their way into 80 days-worth of adventure.

Armed only with a balloon, their baggage and a bicycle built for two, our adventurous heroes brave dangers, plunge headlong into calamity and caper from country to country. All the while taking fantastic photos, sharing splendid stories and having brilliant fun!

Performances will take place throughout the day!

The Explorers Galorers stop by Boston on their world travels.

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.
