Positive feedback for Lincoln’s Music in the Garden event

Lincoln shoppers relaxed at their own mini Glastonbury — minus the mud and rain — at one of the city’s shopping centres this weekend.

Music in the Garden, organised by Lincoln BIG, saw people visit the green area of St Marks Shopping Centre on June 28 to hear music from six different acts.

The featured musicians were local bands including The Coffee Bar Cowboys, The Delta Dogs, Gone to the Dogs Duo with fiddle playing by Andrew Sutherland, The Jabberwocky Duo, and Swing Nouveau.

The showcase of musical talent was wrapped-up by guitarist and singer-songwriter Elliott Morris from Horncastle.

Toby Carvery was there to serve food and drinks to shoppers, although some chose to have a picnic in the sun, whilst others danced and clapped along to show their appreciation of the music.

Lincoln BIG Events and Promotions Manager Michael Armstrong said: “It was fabulous to see so many people taking time out from shopping or sightseeing to relax and enjoy the music.

“I think the success of the event was down to the fact that there was a lively programme of music on offer and people could dip in and out of the event to suit themselves. It was clear that some families stayed a little longer than perhaps they originally intended!

“Lincoln BIG is looking forward to working with St Marks again on August 2, when we shall be teaming-up to stage Carnival in the Garden, which will feature family workshops led by the circus and street theatre group The Earthbound Misfits.”
