The village boasts of its theatre in a converted Methodist Chapel named after the parents of Oscar winner Jim Broadbent who himself is a patron and occasional visitor. The small Anglican Church dedicated to St. Peter & St. Lawrence is dated from 1100 AD but with an added Victorian bell tower. Wickenby Airfield to the south is ex WW II bomber command but has an active flying club, cafe and small museum.
