Cathedral joins Castle for Lincoln Sausage Festival

Lincoln Cathedral is joining Lincoln Castle for a celebration of the Lincolnshire Sausage on Saturday, October 27.

The Lincoln Sausage Festival at Lincoln Castle will be extended to the Cathedral, opening its doors to showcase county food and farming.

Around 60 stalls will be present at the event, which attracted more than 11,000 visitors last year.

TV chef Rachael Green will hold cookery demonstrations and Neil Curtis from Curtis of Lincoln will hold sausage-making lessons.

At the Cathedral, the nave will be filled with the finest Lincolnshire produce and livestock, farm machinery and stalls promoting the county’s largest food producers.

The event is sponsored by Tastes of Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire County Council, Lincoln Business Improvement Group and Redhill Farm.

It’s organised by Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia to raise money for Rotary Kids Out 2012, a charity working to give underprivileged fun days out.

The festival will also look to raise the profile of the county banger.

“The Lincolnshire Sausage is very important to the people of Lincolnshire. The fact that the sausage hasn’t got PGI status in unfortunate,” said Mark Brewer, who has organised the event for the past ten years.

Entry at Lincoln Castle will be free for the Lincoln Sausage Festival on Saturday, October 27, from 10am to 4pm.
