This story is over

Lincoln Castle is holding a unique heritage crafts festival over the weekend.

1000 Years of Traditional Crafts features heritage skills and crafts from across the UK and Europe.

The event is also linked to city’s brand new Heritage Skills Centre, to be built over the next year in the grounds of Lincoln Castle.

On display in special areas at both the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and Lincoln Castle were experts demonstrating traditional crafts ranging from lace making to silver smithing and stained glass window making to blacksmith skills.

Outside the Castle walls, Tastes of Lincolnshire food stalls and food demonstrations are also around the medieval cobbled streets of Castle Square.

1000 Years of Traditional Crafts continues on Sunday, September 30, from 10am to 6pm, with the last entry at 5.15pm. Tickets at the gate cost £9.
