The Fountain, Found!

Grimsby Cleethorpes & District Civic Society
19 November - 17 December 2022

The Grimsby, Cleethorpes and District Civic Society welcome you to a retelling of the story of Edward Bannister, a local philanthropist and lover of the arts. Over 150 years ago, as Mayor of Grimsby, he donated the drinking fountain, first sited in Albert Gardens.

This show re-presents the fountain in its current state and its journey throughout the years and within the town.

We hope to raise awareness of local arts and culture and the legacy of a great man who helped shaped Great Grimsby, and how we can take pride in local projects.

Please come and share your thoughts, memories and questions.
