Brigg Town Business Partnership is again running the popular acoustic music festival, Briggstock, for a fourth year, on September 5.

Town Mayor James Truepenny has come up with the musical line up for the main stage and three of the busking stations!.

Jayne Kitchen for the Business Partnership said: “For the first time the event has attracted a major sponsor, Brown and Co who are very keen to support the local 
community and in particular Brigg Town Business Partnership.

“The Briggstock T-shirts are now on sale promoting the event and are available from Retro Revolution in School Court in Brigg.”

Ms. Kitchen also announced 77 businesses in Brigg have subscribed to a new map leaflet promoting its strong community of independent businesses:

“The new leaflet is an exciting initiative which promotes the uniqueness of Brigg’s business community using a map where subscribing businesses are listed and numbered on the local map.

“It is intended to be renewed at least yearly to allow the partnership to keep it up to date.”

The leaflets will be made available through leaflet boxes easily accessible at each of the ‘gateways’ to Brigg, 
car parks, bus and train stations.

The Partnership’s recent public consultation gave an unequivocal and enthusiastic green light to pursue the placement of arches 
and signs to promote the historic courts and yards of Brigg.

Commissioned arch designs and motifs produced by students from North Lindsey College have been 
selected and work is already underway on the engineering, planning and funding of the arches.
