There will be medieval re-enactments and craft activities at Gainsborough Old Hall this weekend.

You'll be in good company if you do go, as the 500-year-old manor house has had many famous visitors over the years including Richard III, Henry VIII and John Wesley.

While there you can also explore the impressive Great Hall, an original medieval kitchen and - if you dare - the ghost corridor!


Police looking into aggressive pre-recorded prank calls

Police are making people aware of a series of strange prank phone calls in the Lincolnshire area.

The calls are pre-recorded responses based on a variety of scenarios. In one conversation, an angry man claims you have hit his car. In a second call, he accuses the listener of stealing his wi-fi.

Police say the calls anticipate the recipient's response, giving the impression that you're speaking with someone. Police have issued the following advice:

  • Calls do not necessarily have to be reported to police - you can just ignore the call
  • Your local provider may be able to block the number
  • At night, put your phone on night mode or switch it off
