About the Festival

It was a Celebration of the New Open Churches Festival –

and you made it special

Horncastle and surrounding villages opened their doors for a fascinating open weekend on September 9th and 10th, 2017.
Here are some of the pics taken over that weekend last year.

Initial information indicates a huge success for the first ever Horncastle and Villages Festival. Many people enjoyed visiting the area’s Churches.
