Party In The Pines has grown every time, with more people hearing about it and word of mouth spreading. What makes Party In The Pines different from most other small festivals in or near Lincolnshire is it’s situated on a private clearing in a woodland with a fitting stage to its surroundings. It’s also a very reasonable price which includes Camping and Parking.
For those who don’t know what the festival is or what to expect from it this video gives you a little taster of what the day is like.
Already the Pines line up is filling up, with the Hardr:ive stage boasting favourites such as DJ SY, Mark EG & Mzone among many more.
The headliners as you may have already seen are The Sunshine Underground.

This Saturday the biggest local event kicks off between Broughton & Appleby.
How Much is it and where can I get a ticket ? £20 & tickets are still available from Celebrate Partyshop Robert Street.
When can I camp from? Saturday to Sunday
I haven’t received my online ticket purchase yet? Don’t worry if you ordered before last Friday your tickets should have been dispatched and be with you by the end of this week.
Why can’t I bring glass bottles? One they are more dangerous, health and safety and also harder to get rid of. Where as cans are much easier to recycle and plastic bottles.
What time does it start and end? 12pm to 12am
Why does it finish at 12am this year? Due to noise restrictions which effect local villages.
Why can’t I bring a caravan? Space is the answer to this, if there were too many caravans the site would fill quickly & there are no hook ups. Camper vans are permitted.
Can we have a BBQ or Fire? Due to fire risks these will not be permitted. Food vans will be on site for your catering needs or feel free to bring a picnic.
The event is open to over 18’s only due to licensing.
Can I pay on the gate on the day? This option will not be available.
Party In The Pines is situated in a private woodland clearing. Whilst driving past Broughton onto Appleby you will see the sign posted entrance to enter the parking & camping site. Once you have parked and pitched you can make your way to the fair situated near the entrance to the Pine arena.

If you are or thinking of after reading this, in taking part get in touch so we can follow your week Below the line. With a food diary of images and your experience.
Live below the Line 2014 is taking place from Monday 28 April to Friday 2 May, and challenges you to live below the poverty line for one week. Change the way you think about poverty.
What is Live below the Line?
During the Live Below the Line five day challenge 27,500 children will die of malnutrition. It shouldn’t be like this. The world produces enough food for every child. Today, UNICEF is doing more than anyone to stop children suffering from hunger and dying from malnutrition.
The challenge is to buy all the food and drink you need to survive for five days with just £5 (£1 per day). There are no specific rules on what you can and can’t do, it’s really up to you about how strict you want to be (e.g. using oil, or spices etc).
Get sponsored by family members, friends, and co-workers to live below the line, raising money. You’ll gain first-hand insight into the lives of people living below the poverty line and have the chance to make a difference. See the Charities you can choose to donate to here.
How do I join in?
Step 1. Register
Register now on the Live below the Line 2014 website, where you can set up your online fundraising page, and access loads of materials to help you plan.
Step 2. Read about the challenge from our past participants
Last year, over 1200 people in the UK raised an incredible £153,170 for UNICEF’s work for children.
In the run up to the campaign we will be adding lots of new stories from past participants and resources to help you plan and fund raise.
Step 3. Recruit your friends, and get fundraising

Last night we attended the Plowright theatre, greeted by smiling faces as usual. Seeing the Hospital Players has become quite a regular thing for Scunthorpe Nights.
This time the Hospital Players took on a more spooky storyline and a more basic set, to perform a play inside a play. The bare bones of a theatre set and a cast of 7. The play is set in a theatre, you’re thinking well obviously it’s at the theatre. What’s meant by this is that the play is acted out as though the the Plowright Theatre is their set.

After a couple of months being back online Scunthorpe LGBT network has received numerous messages and emails either requesting support or an event. It has become more and more visible that homophobia locally sadly is still alive for some of the community.
We are creating a social meet up which will allow ages 14+. This may put some of the people over 18 off but we do not expect everyone to sit together if they do not wish to. Certain age groups will be split off onto which ever tables they wish.
The first meet up everyone will be asked their opinion of what they would like to see more of whether it be have trips out, film showings or a night time club/gig event.
So why not come hang out for a non alcoholic drink and a chat.
