St George’s Day celebrations coming to Lincoln Castle

Lincoln Castle has announced a range of events for St George’s Day weekend (April 22 – 23).

The castle, which won a prestigious award in February, will give visitors the chance to experience how Victorians celebrated the day by meeting a wide range of characters and through taking part in a pageant, honouring the legendary hero.

Younger visitors are invited to take part in the St George Chivalry school, where they will learn how St George tackled dragons and rescued beautiful maidens.

Jon Hogan, public engagement manager, said: “To help celebrate St George’s Day, we have a packed weekend of events where visitors can be transported back to Victorian times.

“From music and dancing to our St George’s pageant, there is something for everyone to enjoy.”

The events will run from 11am – 4.30pm with castle attractions open from 10am – 5pm.
