Artist's Description

This historical Tudor building in the Lincolnshire town of Boston dates back to the 15th century and started life as a trade hall for four local priories. The building was remodeled and refurbished in 1879 and turned into a theater where the famous Arthur Lucan / Old Mother Riley started his career in Pantomime.

Lincolnshire’s history has been influenced by people from other lands; Romans, Normans, Saxons and Danes, but in later times it was Lincolnshire people who would help shape the modern world. The driving forces were curiosity, a sense of adventure, the desire to exploit the riches of the New World, and religion.

Pilgrims from Lincolnshire headed west. The Pilgrim Fathers set sail to escape persecution, starting communities in a young country – America. Later 250 of Boston’s most influential citizens set sail to the New World, founding Boston, Massachusetts amongst others. It is likely that many of those citizens would have visited this building.
