ARTS, CULTURE & LEISURE PROJECTS
BLNC supported projects related to arts, culture, music and leisure
As part of our vision for North Cleethorpes to “Better Develop Local Facilities and Amenity Land for Culture, Leisure and Recreation” we agreed in 2020 to invest in two standalone projects – one of these being a Holiday Home for local residents to benefit from. The caravan is at Thorpe Park.
Moon on the Water
Moon on the Water is a social enterprise based on the North Promenade in Cleethorpes which provides a music and performing arts venue with a vegan café and bar. The venture aims to improve access to arts and culture and support and encourage local musicians, artists and arts groups. Initially, a capital grant was provided by BLNC to help the building meet the minimum legal health and safety and food hygiene standards necessary in order to open. The venue opened in 2016 and has gone from strength to strength.
Mural at Poplar Road Fire Stations
Local artists have made their mark inside Poplar Road Fire Station by painting a giant mural depicting the life of the Station. BLNC supported the project with a grant in order to get local people involved in art.
Birdhouse Festival 2017
The Birdhouse Family Festival was an event planned for Cleethorpes beach front, but for 2017 BLNC worked with the organisers to get the event extended up onto the North Prom. The North Promenade is an area of priority focus for the Partnership and the festival has enabled relationships with traders to be further developed. This extension into the North Prom area also served to foster a good working relationship between the Festival organisers.

SidFest was the first large scale public event on Sidney Park for many years. A funding award was made to support the event along with time and support from BLNC volunteers. The event was also an opportunity to canvas local people about their thoughts on longer term plans for the Park to help BLNC develop a strategy. The scale of volunteering to support this event was significant and the community engagement was very successful.

Music on the Prom
A music and arts event took place on North Prom during 2015 in order to provide a community, family event in the area aiming to bring more business to the North Prom businesses. Our very first arts and music project.
