Grantham is gearing up for the start of a week-long festival of science and the arts inspired by the town's most famous son, Sir Isaac Newton. More than 100 events will take place over eight days from Friday 21 September including shows, exhibitions, presentations and outdoor performances.
Organisers of the Gravity Fields festival say it will explore, celebrate and interpret some of the big thinking in today's world as well as look back at where the modern understanding of science began. They've planned a programme of ticketed and free events centred around a statue of the scientist.
