Hundreds expected at Our Big Gig Lincoln music festival

Community Lincoln music festival Our Big Gig in the Arboretum is back again for 2017 – its fifth year.

This year’s event will take place on Sunday, July 16 from 12pm until 7pm with everyone invited to enjoy an afternoon of free music and entertainment.

Starting in 2013 with around 300 attendees last year’s event saw 1,000 people flock to the Monks Road park.

The event has been organised by local volunteer group Action LN2 and will feature a live music line up of local musicians with a range of genres, as well as inflatables, an African drumming workshop, giant bubble making, a variety of side stalls and more.

Eleni Taylor, secretary of Action LN2, said: “We cannot believe how much Our Big Gig in the Arboretum has grown over these five years!

“It is something that is marked in our community’s diaries, a day that we all look forward to!

“We can’t wait to see the final result and the local community coming together to enjoy themselves and make use of their beautiful park!”
