Folkingham’s House of Correction will come alive to the sound of music on Saturday, May 16 from 10am until 4pm.

The 19th century village landmark is hosting an open day to mark the 50th anniversary of the Landmark Trust, a charity that restores and maintains historic buildings. 
Families across south Lincolnshire and beyond are invited to the charity’s Golden Weekend when countywide community music organisation soundLINCS will be running a workshop throughout the day where visitors can learn musical skills. 
There will also be a performance of anniversary anthem, Lines, Loops, Bones and Stones, composed by London-based musician Kerry Andrew, as well as exhibitions by South Lafford Art Group and Folkingham History Group. 
Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE, chief executive officer of soundLINCS, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Landmark Trust as part of the Golden Weekend and it is wonderful to get the opportunity to create music in such a unique venue. 
“The House of Correction is a fantastic setting for what will be a brilliant day of celebration and music-making.”
