By way of an update to my previous posts about the Lincoln born father of digital technology George Boole, Dave Kenyon writes:
Friends of George Boole,
I thought you might be interested in the UK premiere of the Irish film about George Boole. It’s at 2pm this Sunday 25th Oct at the Collection. It’s part of a longer programme, but the Boole film is 58 mins long. Attendance is free but ticketed.
The film is presented as part of the current Frequency Festival in Lincoln. Tickets are available here. (Get your free tickets by clicking on the green “register” button.)
“Frequency Festival of Digital Culture is a biennial festival hosted in the city of Lincoln, providing a platform to celebrate the pioneering spirit of digital innovation and culture through exhibition, creative collision and debate.”If this takes your fancy, or even if like me you are intrigued by “creative collision”, then do check the programme out on the Frequency website schedule before you go. The festival runs from October 23 to November 1, with multiple events taking place in various city venues.
This popular festival is back with a full programme of events celebrating reading, writing and performance in and around Louth, Spilsby and the Wolds. It runs from 21 to 25 October, and this year there will also be a programme for children and young people, timed to take place during half term, 26 to 31 October. There will also be pop up events appearing throughout 2015.
This weekend the City of Lincoln will be invaded by Steampunks! Don’t worry, they are entirely harmless, they just love dressing up in Victorian style – anything from top hats and flying goggles, to corsets and flamboyant feathers.
The Festival celebrates the steam powered world of the late 19th century and attracts visitors from all over the world. It’s the biggest Steampunk festival in Europe, scheduled for the Summer Bank Holiday (28th – 31st August). “Lincoln will host a full convention-style day programme with a fringe style programme of art, literature, music, fashion, comedy and simple good fun.”More info here.
