New event will help groups share Stamford area history

A heritage fair will take place in Stamford later this month.

Leo Specialist Tours, which runs guided and historical tours in Stamford and Rutland, has organised the fair in partnership with Stamford Arts Centre in St Mary’s Hill and the South Lincolnshire Historical and Archaeological Society.

The fair will take place at Stamford Arts Centre on Sunday, May 19, between 11am and 4pm. Entry is free.

It is the first time a community event such as this has taken place and it will be an opportunity to discover more about the history of Stamford and the surrounding area.

Groups from Stamford, South Lincolnshire and Rutland will be there to share their interests in history and there promises to be something for everyone.
