Spilsby Sessions House  

Charity Trustee


Spilsby's Sessions House is a grade II listed former courthouse and police station in Lincolnshire dating back to 1827. In 1984 it became Spilsby Theatre. The building is currently in a very poor condition and has been on the Theatres at Risk Register since 2015 when the main theatre space had to close.

Now with £4.9m of capital funding from the Levelling Up Fund, East Lindsey District Council is working in partnership with Spilsby Sessions House charity to transform the building into sustainable and unique arts facility and creative hub for artists, audiences, visitors and the community as a whole.


Along the journey I have written successful funding bids for the project to support business planning, architectural studies and other essential work. Working together with creative partners I have also enabled an ongoing programme of arts events for the project. Some events had the specific aim of keeping parts of the building in use and other, outdoor arts events, have drawn attention to the project, engaged the wider community and provided an inspiring glimpse into a potential future Spilsby Sessions House has to offer.


I have networked, engaged stakeholders and established the crucial partnerships that have enabled the project to maintain momentum. This has all been motivated by an aim of bringing more culture, and support for creative people, to rural Lincolnshire. 

Up to date information can be found on the project's website.
